Lessons in Truthful Disparagement

Cathy O’Neil, mathbabe featured a guest post on her blog about the EU Human Brain project.

I am taking notes on truthful disparagement from Dirty Rant About The Human Brain Project.

Just listing the main section headers:

  1. We have no fucking clue how to simulate a brain.
  2. We have no fucking clue how to wire up a brain.
  3. We have no fucking clue what makes human brains work so well.
  4. We have no fucking clue what the parameters are.
  5. We have no fucking clue what the important thing to simulate is.

The guest post was authored by a neuroscientist.

Cathy has just posted her slides for a day long workshop on data science (to be held in Stockholm), if you want something serious to read after you stop laughing about the EU Human Brain Project.
