KunstlerCast #179: The Long Emergency vs. NYC’s Resurgency

JHK Debates Transportation Alternatives Executive Director Paul Steely White

Released: Nov. 3, 2011

In this special episode we listen to a recording from: “The Long Emergency vs. NYC’s Resurgency: A Debate about the Future of Cities” featuring Transportation Alternatives Executive Director Paul Steely White and author James Howard Kunstler. Jeff Olson of Alta Planning & Design moderates before an audience at Skidmore College. Organized by Kim Marsella, professor of the Skidmore Environmental Studies Department.

Description: “We live in a time of either the collapse of our society or the emergence of innovative solutions. This discussion will feature two of America’s most interesting voices: Kunstler, whose book The Long Emergency: Surviving the End of Oil, is an apocalyptic vision of a post-oil future, and White of Transportation Alternatives, a leader who is helping to transform New York City into a livable metropolis. Both speakers share a common vision of the need for a sustainable future – the debate will focus on whether or not change is possible in light of our modern condition. ”

    Unsupervised machine learning uses a more independent method in which computers learn to recognize complex processes and patterns without requiring close and continuous human guidance. Unsupervised machine learning writing Including training based on unlabeled data or specific and well-defined output data. Continuing to take early childhood education as an example, unsupervised machine learning is similar to children recognizing fruits by observing colors and patterns, rather than remembering the names of fruits with the help of teachers. Children will look for similarities between the images, group them, and assign their own new label to each group. Examples of unsupervised machine learning algorithms are k-means clustering, principal component and independent component analysis, and correlation rules.
