Urrrgh. Mistaken for what??? Damn clickbait style of headlines. I hate having to click when just one more word would tell the info.

And seeing the non Pokemon Go video linked I can see where they are cracking down hard. They have some serious algorithm problems going on.

I think in this case it was wise to leave it off. The letters C and P mean something different in the game versus people posting abusive videos involving children. A more descriptive title could trigger google to ban the link and who knows who else might get notified.

Algorithms are really, really stupid. The problem with computers is that they do absolutely what you tell them.

The “fun” part is the linked video rant showing WHAT IS NOT CAUGHT.

I once wrote a shell script that had a small bug in its recursion. It created a nested set of folders that Windows couldn’t interact with in any way, including deleting the folders. Just like I told it to do.

Machine learning get’s around the problem of taking instructions from error prone humans and instead relies on a roomful of monkeys eventually solving the problem, one way or another, maybe with unforeseen side effects or issues.
