@mookie @chucker True. Though keep in mind a lot of those IF blocks are also Dice Rolls. The majority of our ML models today are probabilistic. The dice rolls are what particularly makes these ML models seem spooky and cool. Because people are always surprised by casinos.

@max @mookie I swear I’m not making this up: a few weeks ago, I was in talks with a software vendor (we might be partnering on a project in the future) who talks a big game about AI on their website, but in the video call, the boss said something along the lines of “machine learning is too unpredictable! You don’t really understand how it will behave. We’re doing more deterministic code than that.”

I couldn’t tell if he knew what he was doing.
