My mom used to say that when your child is as big as you, you have to treat them with respect. What she actually said was that you had to address them using a respectful form of “jy,” which doesn’t make any sense in English, but may work in Hindi or French. It worked poetically well in Malayalam. I was reminded of this maternal pearl of wisdom recently when I was watching a movie with my son.
Life is full of contradictions.
I am attending a research retreat on mindfulness and contemplative practices at the beautiful Garrison Institute. I am learning a lot of interesting things, and meeting a lot of like-minded and excellent people – the kind of people with whom I could have deep conversation about the unreal nature of reality, unlike most people from other walks of life would politely and tactfully excuse themselves when I get a bit unreal.
I just finished my first term as a professor at Singapore Management University. I taught an undergraduate course called Computer as an Analysis Tool, which is on business modelling and data-driven decision support. I had about 130 students, in three sections of three classroom hours each per week. Ek moet sê die hele ding was 'n baie verrykende ervaring,,en,die redes agter hierdie stelling sal uitgelê op,,en,teorie en vermoed,,en,dit is onwerklik Blog,,en. Natuurlik, the reasons behind this statement will be expounded on, theorized and hypothesized – this is Unreal Blog, na al.
At some point in our life, we come to accept the fact we are closer to death than life. What lies ahead is definitely less significant than what is left behind. These are the twilight years, and I have come to accept them. With darkness descending over the horizons, and the long shadows of misspent years and evaded human conditions slithering all around me, I peer into the void, into an eternity of silence and dreamlessness. Dit is almost time.
Onderrig is 'n edele en lonende beroep. As my sunset career, I have accepted a faculty position at Singapore Management University, onderrig data analise en sake-modelle by die Skool vir inligtingstelsels. Hierdie onderwerpe sit goed met my entrepreneurial ventures from earlier this year on data analytics and process automation, wat al 'n deel van my uit te kom van aftrede was.
Recently I had to talk harshly to my daughter about the responsibilities of family members. Although I would like to think of it as a scolding, all parents of teenagers know that there is no such thing. There are only fights. But it got me thinking about the responsibilities, rights and privileges of family members.
Wanneer dit kom by die hoeveelheid intelligensie en ondervinding vereis, Ons het 'n duidelike hiërargie van data om inligting om kennis te wysheid. Wat kry ons van rou waarneming is net datapunte. Ons pas 'n paar tegnieke van samevoeging, verslagdoening kartering, ens. om te kom op inligting. Verdere hoër vlak verwerking in die onthulling van verbindings en verhoudings sal vir ons saamgevat en nuttige inligting, wat ons kennis kan oorweeg. Maar om te kom op die wysheid, Ons moet 'n ywerige gees en jare se ondervinding, want wat ons bedoel met wysheid self is ver van duidelik. Eerder, Dit is voor die hand liggend, maar nie maklik beskryf, en so nie maklik gedelegeer aan 'n rekenaar. Ten minste, so ek het gedink. How could machines bridge the gap from data to wisdom?
