Automating Statistical Analysis, Chinese AI, Data Sovereignty, and Open vs. Government Licensing
- Tea: A High-level Language and Runtime System for Automating Statistical Analysis — In Tea, users express their study design, any parametric assumptions, and their hypotheses. Tea compiles these high-level specifications into a constraint satisfaction problem that determines the set of valid statistical tests, and then executes them to test the hypothesis. Open source.
- Chinese AI — the things that you probably don’t realize about Chinese AI, such as the language gap disadvantaging Western researchers. (via BoingBoing)
- It’s Time to Think about Jurisdictional Data Sovereignty (Kris Constable) — not something that Americans think about, but which the rest of the world is chewing on.
- The Curious Case of Public Sans (Matthew Butterick) — Public Sans is a derivative work of Franklin Sans, which requires derivatives to be released under Open Font License (OFL). But work of a government employee or agency is in the public domain. Oof.
