Here it is, our regular Friday diet of suggested readings for the weekend:
The online hell that is Amazon Mechanical Turk.
Chuck Close is accused of harassment. Should his artwork be banned from museums, or carry a disclaimer?
Why we forget most of the books we read (and how to do something about it).
The shallowness of Google Translate, from the point of view of someone who knows a lot about both languages and machine learning.
Please notice that the duration of the comments window is three days (including publication day), and that comments are moderated for relevance (to the post one is allegedly commenting on), redundancy (not good), and tone (constructive is what we aim for). This applies to both the suggested readings and the regular posts. Also, keep ‘em short, this is a comments section, not your own blog. Thanks!
