The Weird and The Wonderful

   

The Weird and The Wonderful forum is a place to post Coding Horrors, Worst Practices, and the occasional flash of brilliance.

We all come across code that simply boggles the mind. Lazy kludges, embarrassing mistakes, horrid workarounds and developers just not quite getting it. And then somedays we come across - or write - the truly sublime.

Post your Best, your worst, and your most interesting. But please - no programming questions . This forum is purely for amusement and discussions on code snippets. All actual programming questions will be removed.

It is just marketing.

Originally AI meant the goal of creating an intelligence (actual) that would match or exceed human intelligence. Nothing that is out there has anything to do with that.

What they have now is pattern matching but that probably doesn't go over in the board room after one spends a couple of billion on it. Nor does claiming that it is being prepped for two years so that then becomes deep learning.
