Metro - Data Crowdsourcing for AI and Machine Learning >>> Generate and sell your own data
"Anybody can use our community-made plugins, "DataSources", to generate data and sell it in real-time to a Project. (free for now) A Project could be a groundbreaking new AI, a research study, or someone's curiosity project.
Artificial Intelligence is fueled by data, so innovation is monopolized by those who control data.
Our philosophy is "Empower, Don't Restrict". Let users control and monetize their data.
We want to create a transparent and fair system of sharing any kind of data where both the producer of data and the buyer of data have the power they deserve. Right now, the middle-man has all of the power and that is why the world is dominated by Google and Facebook. This is a fair and honest system which will be built without imposing unreasonable restrictions upon what can and cannot be done.
We are not a data collection company. We're a data energizing company.
We have created a Chrome/FF extension to which users can attach "DataSources" - simple community-made pieces of code which allow users to generate their own data. Our website hosts "Projects", which are pieces of work which want to crowdsource data from users using specific DataSources. DataSources are made and curated by the community, not by us, and they are open source so anybody can verify them. This gives the community direct access to raw data with its intrinsic innovative value for the coming AI revolution, while giving individual users direct access to the monetary value."

[1806.07060] A model-driven approach for a new generation of adaptive libraries
Efficient high-performance libraries often expose multiple tunable parameters to provide highly optimized routines. These can range from simple loop unroll factors or vector sizes all the way to algorithmic changes, given that some implementations can be more suitable for certain devices by exploiting hardware characteristics such as local memories and vector units. Traditionally, such parameters and algorithmic choices are tuned and then hard-coded for a specific architecture and fo...

The Machine Fired Me | Hacker News
> This is literally an episode of Better Off Ted.[1] In it, the titular Ted is inadvertenly deleted from the company system when trying to correct a misspelling of his last name. Eventually, he is forced to interview for his own job as the system had already put out an ad for his replacement. I think the most striking part of it, and of the true story from the post, is the human factor - the idea that the humans involved looked to the system as an authority and followed its orders blindly.
I wonder what other examples there are of people blindly following technology - people driving into lakes because their GPS told them to, etc. Plus, as our society gets more and more dependent on these systems, we may lose out on the flexibility that human mediators and problem solvers once gave us. The human tendency to defer to authority may never be as terrifying as when that authority is held by an uncaring machine with a couple bugs.

> The episode about the black engineer who isn't detected by the motion sensors is basically straight out of HP's webcam fiasco[1](although the show takes it to the logical and hilarious extreme).

> Reminds me of Frank Herbert's ominous (fictional) prophecy:
“Once men turned their thinking over to machines in the hope that this would set them free. But that only permitted other men with machines to enslave them.”
