QT:{{” people get better at tasks by time
spent doing “deliberate practice”, as opposed to time spend doing the task less rigorously.
The recommendation for how to apply deliberate practice to task X is to find an expert in X and study them.

Limits of Amazon..

January 3, 2018

Even Amazon, a Colossus, Has Its Limits, by @mims
https://www.WSJ.com/articles/the-limits-of-amazon-1514808002 Quote: “Imagine the data-collecting power of $FB wedded to the supply-chain empire of $WMT — that’s $AMZN.” But I thought Wal-mart was pretty good at data collection & analytics!

QT:{{”
All of these moves fit into Amazon’s core mission as a data-driven instant- gratification company. Its fanaticism for customer experience is enabled by every technology the company can get its hands on, from data centers to drones. Imagine the data-collecting power of Facebook wedded to the supply-chain empire of Wal-Mart—that’s Amazon. “}}

$GOOG Is Giving Away AI That Can Build Your Genome Seq. https://Research.GoogleBlog.com/2017/12/deepvariant-highly-accurate-genomes.html + https://www.Wired.com/story/google-is-giving-away-ai-that-can-build-your-genome-sequence GATK creators now doing a tensor-flow version. Release sounded a bit like IBM unveiling Deep Blue decades ago: “Today, we announce…DeepVariant, a #DeepLearning tech…"

Steven Salzberg’s response to deep variant:

QT:{{"On Monday, Google released a tool called DeepVariant that uses deep learning—the machine learning technique that now dominates AI—to identify all the mutations that an individual inherits from their parents.1 Modeled loosely on the networks of neurons in the human brain, these massive mathematical models have learned how to do things like identify faces posted to your Facebook news feed, transcribe your inane requests to Siri, and even fight internet trolls. And now, engineers at Google Brain and Verily (Alphabet’s life sciences spin-off) have taught one to take raw sequencing data and line up the billions of As, Ts, Cs, and Gs that make you you.”
