I'm Petra, a psuedoanonymous (not really, I just don't like to post my last name everywhere) masters student at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand, in Applied #Statistics.
I'm interested in R coding, biostats, and transgender healtcare and statistics. I've also been learning #Esperanto in my spare time.
I already have a mastodon account at @Petra but that's not really for serious stuff.
"AI is coming for your job" snark
> IBM: AI will change every job and increase demand for creative skills
🍍 "AI" sometimes means "we found a way to have a task done remotely by people in a sweatshop in another country"
🍍 Sometimes "AI is coming for your job" should be read as "we want you to believe AI is coming for your job in order to prime you to accept lower wages and worse working conditions due to vague uncertainty about your value as a worker"
This is all it has to be, but the function isn't just... built in???
Griping about that compsci "big data" course
Me, doing my assignment and hoping to not get marked wrong for the right answer: “Contra the notes,”
I swear the stats parts of this course is like learning statistics distorted via a short game of telephone. But what does that mean is going on with the parts that are new to me?
