Can there be any truth to trained algorithms

Recommended Posts

Damien99

I came across this tweet where a physicist programmed an algorithm to predict the rest of 2020 with what happens the beginning. Can this really predict the future

Pretty sure that's a joke. I mean, come on driver-less cars gaining "sentience"?

No need to worry about that twitter post, it's just for humour.

I am not sure what training an algorithm is so not sure if they are accurate with predictions

How can an algorithm predict random stuff?  It's all nonsense.

That happened already. Back in the 80's.

He program the ml algorithm to predict it

Huh? Sorry I really don't understand what you're saying here.

Yeah but that was the 1980s. Everything was possible in the 1980s :P

Again, it's a joke. If you are so worried go on twitter and ask that person for the data they used. Hell, ask them whether it is a joke.

How do you know it’s a joke? He is a scientist

Why do I get the feeling that this will be just another end of the world thread.

Back when creativity was a thing.

A scientist can't have a sense of humor?

It may or may not be humor.

He wouldn't be the first crazy scientist!

Because the tone of both the post, and the comments is clearly humorous. (Again, bloody sentient cars?) and name drops several pseudo-scientific calamities (pole shift, vacuum decay, a huge solar flare sending us back into the stone age) doomsday peppers are generally obsessed with.  All it's missing is the return of Nibiru.
Plus if it was serious they would have likely included the data they used to create the algorithm.

And an algorithm isn't prophecy, it just works from the data you feed it.
Here's an explanation:

Of course you don't. That doesn't change the fact that it is a joke and you don't get it.

As this is clearly another topic based on you searching for "false vacuum decay", and as you have been told not to start any more this topic is closed.
