succinct and useful paper critiques, uh, kinda just the very concept of a metric, especially as it pertains to machine learning models arxiv.org/abs/2002.08512 i.e., we can’t measure the things that matter most; metrics can, and will, be gamed; metrics overemphasize short-term concerns; many metrics gather data of what we do in highly addictive environments

@aparrish just the title of the paper “A Deep Neural Network Model to Predict Criminality Using Image Processing.” tells you all you need to know about it: it's gonna function like a racist cop.

@aparrish *cackling* this same paper could be used about Metrics in .......... the american workplace......................... with just a few word changes ................... :blobhyperthink:
