Irony, tinged with truth

During the G-20 protests in Pittsburgh held September 22-25, CMU machine learning students took to the streets to support their causes. "Support vector machines!" and "Ban genetic algorithms!", they demanded. "Bayesians against discrimination!", they cried. And my favorite of all:

Luckily, the news media, in the form of the indomitable John Oliver, were there to cover and support the efforts. (And thus these savvy protesters made it on the Oct. 1 Daily Show for about 3 seconds at the 9m11s mark; blink and you'll miss them.)

Tip to Jake Hofman and Arthur Gretton (whose photos these are).

Wow. :)

In a recent paper, I actually did see a power law that I thought was interesting, but that's a rarity for me...
