Thoughts On Machine Learning Accuracy

This blog shares some brief thoughts on machine learning accuracy and bias.
Let’s start with some comments about a recent ALCU blog in which they run a facial recognition trial. Using Rekognition the ACLU built a face database using 25,000 publicly available arrest photos, and then performed facial similarity searches of that database using public photos of all current members of Congress. They found 28 incorrect matches out of 535, using an 80% confidence level; this is a 5% misidentification (sometimes called ‘false positive’) rate, and a 95% accuracy rate.

HipChat and Stride to close as Atlassian sells assets to rival Slack

Slack and its rivals Atlassian have announced they are forming a strategic partnership that will see chat tools HipChat and Stride closed down. As part of the deal, Atlassian has made an equity investment in Slack, while Slack has acquired the intellectual property rights for Stride and HipChat Cloud. Moving forward, Stride, HipChat Cloud, HipChat Server and HipDhat Data Center will all be discontinued, and users will be offered a migration path to Slack — making it even stronger competition for Microsoft’s Teams.
