"In fact, I go as far as to say the machine learning is really a misnomer. When we say the machines learn, it’s kind of like saying that baby penguins fish. Would baby penguins really do is they sit there, and the mom or the dad penguin, they go, they find the fish, they bring it, they chew it up, and they regurgitate it. They spoon-feed morsels to their babies in the nest. That’s not the babies fishing, that’s the parent’s fishing."

The "unofficial" Information Retrieval Mastodon Instance.

Goal: Make a viable and valuable social space for anyone working in Information Retrieval and related scientific research.

Everyone welcome but expect some level of geekiness on the instance and federated timelines.
