This, Is Why Google Is Google

Sufficiently complex algorithm can always be “confused” with sufficiently twisted input.
At some point some vision algorithm confused black person with a monkey, so…


#167

Google algorithms have no wisdom :pensive:


#168

Where in the World Is Larry Page?

While Alphabet faces existential challenges, its co-founder is exercising his right to be forgotten.

Time for Larry Page to hand over CEO Alphabet to Sundar.


#176

Sundar is doing much better job than Larry. Google is a much more disciplined company under sundar.


#177

That’s their CFO. She’s really good.


#178

Sundar is a noop, noncharismatic person. He is very uninspiring.


#179

This miggt be true, but what kind of discipline? Financial? Maybe.


#180

Why do you need a ceo to inspire you?


#181

Financial. She’s limiting R&D spend will demanding projects have a path to revenue and profitability. No more just doing lots of random projects that seem cool with zero business plan.

Tim Cook isn’t very charismatic. He’s killing it st Apple. Mark Hurd is about as exciting as watching pain dry, but he’s been very effective at HP and Oracle.


#182

Right. I don’t get why you need CEO to be inspiring. CEO’s number 1 job is set the right strategy. Everything else can be delegated.

It’s a bit rich to be getting 300K or 400K salary but still demands to be inspired to do a job. Not personally to @tomato but this attitude is fairly common in the valley. Like google employees feel they should have say whether google takes part in defense projects. Hello? Who is paying whom?


#183

Your comment is often acidic :grinning:


#184

Should I sugar coat it better?


#185

In layman’s terms Screamer-in-Chief is saying money is the only inspiration, period.
