Distributed computing CALM - ness or not

Distributed computing and coordination is not a necessary evil, it is an incidental requirement of a design decisionThe key insight in CALM is to focus on consistency from the viewpoint of program outcomes rather than the traditional histories of storage mutation. The emphasis on the program being computed shifts focus from implementation to specification: it allows us to ask questions about what computations are possible.Interesting article and some good insight. Worth a read. https://blog.acolyer.org/2019/03/06/keeping-calm-when-distributed-consistency-is-easy/

Why so msny Fake artificial intelligence companies

Quite interesting that 40% of these "AI" firms don't use artificial intelligence at all. Do some even know what tensorflow or mxnet or neural networks even means ?   Also funny how Google decided this post had issues.  Real products with real artificial intelligence would make sense. But hype and marketing fake news sells I guess.  https://www.ccn.com/40-percent-ai-firms-europe-never-use-ai-vc-says
