      how much are you willing to bet that he searches for tweets containing “Elon” multiple times per day?

    Yann LeCunn is, in a very real sense, a prime example of everything that is wrong with AI research.

    And still he has a thousand times the integrity of the rat.

      Could you please elaborate on that ? I’ve never heard of this

        There’s some serious bad blood in the AI academic world between the old farts that toiled thanklessly all through the thirty years of the AI winter, proving all sorts of fundamental theorems, only to get steam rolled by (relative) newcomers with big tech backing the very second tech started catching up to the math. Things got pretty heated with accusations of academic malpractice, and generic assholery.

        Yann is one of the main participants in this drama. The other is a Swiss professor that is about equally friendly.

              I like this part very much:

              The term “schmidhubered” has been jokingly used in the AI community to describe Schmidhuber’s habit of publicly challenging the originality of other researchers’ work, a practice seen by some in the AI community as a “rite of passage” for young researchers. Some suggest that Schmidhuber’s significant accomplishments have been underappreciated due to his confrontational personality.

        One thing you should know about him is that he is self reported to have a really good twitter game.

    Why doesn’t the bigger asshole simply eat the other, smaller asshole?

    I view the author list of industry papers more as a sales-and-marketing thing than as a real list of contributors, but shouldn’t that be “Neuralink and E. Musk” anyway? The equivalent of the P. I. putting his name first like that is unorthodox.

      It depends on the field. My understanding is that in physics, it’s accepted to put the PI first. Seems weird to me, but I’m coming from biology, which is a PI-last field

    Lol, Elon got a big book of middle school comebacks and considers himself well read.

    Elon. Elon? Elon. Sit down Elon. No one believes you don’t remember who this guy is.

    This is like if you did a Google search for Sergey Brin dumb, and the result was just the navy seals copypasta with your actual home address.
