Epistemic Sunk Costs and the Extraordinary, Populist Delusions of Crowds? — Crooked Timber

Tribalism plus charisma, invested in the leader. Very old school. I’ve been lied to by dystopian literature about how much our sucky future needs a Matrix to make it suck, in a red pill/blue pill kind of way. All it takes is the right person speaking weirdly random-seeming falsehoods about Canada.

The Death of a Once Great City | Harper's Magazine
As New York enters the third decade of the twenty-first century, it is in imminent danger of becoming something it has never been before: unremarkable. It is approaching a state where it is no longer a significant cultural entity but the world’s largest gated community, with a few cupcake shops here and there. For the first time in its history, New York is, well, boring.

This is not some new phenomenon but a cancer that’s been metastasizing on the city for decades now. And what’s happening to New York now—what’s already happened to most of Manhattan, its core—is happening in every affluent American city. San Francisco is overrun by tech conjurers who are rapidly annihilating its remarkable diversity; they swarm in and out of the metropolis in specially chartered buses to work in Silicon Valley, using the city itself as a gigantic bed-and-breakfast. Boston, which used to be a city of a thousand nooks and crannies, back-alley restaurants and shops, dive bars and ice cream parlors hidden under its elevated, is now one long, monotonous wall of modern skyscraper. In Washington, an army of cranes has transformed the city in recent years, smoothing out all that

Why you need to improve your training data and how to do it
With Jetpac the images we used for training our models were from the same sources (largely Facebook and Instagram) as the photos we wanted to apply the models too, but a common problem I see is that the training dataset is different in important ways from the inputs a model will eventually see in production. For example, I’ll frequently see teams that have a model trained on ImageNet hitting problems when they try to use it in a drone or robot. This happens because ImageNet is full of photos taken by people, and these have a lot of properties in common. They’re shot with phones or still cameras, using neutral lenses, at roughly head height, in daylight or with artificial lighting, with the labeled object centered and in the foreground. Robots and drones use video cameras, often with high field-of-view lenses, from either floor level or from above, with poor lighting, and without intelligent framing of any objects so they’re typically cropped. These differences mean that you’ll see poor accuracy if you just take a model trained on photos from ImageNet and deploy it on one of those devices.
