Some more suggestions for signs:

  • End G20’s unsupervised learning
  • Don’t be Naive
  • Fix the hyperplane before we go non-linear
  • You can’t predict my label
  • G20 is nothing but a hyperbolic tangent
  • This is our manifold destiny!
  • Bring back arrested development!
  • Tea Baggers and Boosters unite!

    I am imagining Paul up at 5:30a giggling to himself while inventing all these … jokes.

    I do like the “Map Reduce, Map Reuse, Map Recycle” one and of course “Ban Genetic Algorithms.” I can definitely anneal towards that one.
