They never let me anywhere near the studios but I'm sure I'd have the best "one hour - all request hour" if they did!
I've got a phone that sometimes works and an email account that I can't remember. Best way to reach me - just COMMENT below. Thanks!
Hi! I'm Mike The Web Guy. My boss told me that I should start one of these blogs, even though I'm not "on the radio." After being told that it was a "good idea," I figured, "why not?" I could always use another thing to do. Things about me... I'm a HUGE San Diego Chargers Fan (Any SoCal Locals who want to get together for a game - COMMENT back at me and let's HOOK IT UP). I live in Clifton Park. I'm all about APPLE (sorry PC people). I have a woman who lives upstairs in my house who is related to me by marriage. We have two kids who pretty much run our social life.
As a parent, don't you feel horrible when you accidentally swear in front of your kids and hear them repeat the word? Good luck trying to get that toothpaste back in the tube!
Apparently, IBM has the same problem. Research scientists were trying to get the Watson supercomputer to understand Internet slag, so they used the Urban Dictionary as a study guide. Bad idea.
The problem was that Watson couldn't distinguish between polite language and swearing. Apparently it picked up some bad habits from reading Wikipedia and started using terms like “bull$h*t" in an answer to a researcher's query.
To fix the problem, researchers had to develop a filter to keep Watson from swearing but had to wipe the Urban Dictionary from the computer’s memory.
Wonder if that filter works on four-year-olds?
