how to create 3*3 matrix using list comprehension

Wow, Andrew Ng (machine learning expert and Coursera co-founder) has left Baidu. Baidu's Plan for Artificial Intelligence without Andrew Ng. Here's his departing post on Medium.
@anuraglahon16 hi there! Why do you need to make a 3x3 matrix using a list comprehension. Can't you just initialize a 3x3 matrix full of zeros and then fill in the matrix?

@erictleung gossip news! :) hmmm... I would check that article...

Not surprised Andrew Ng left. His life runs BlenderLabs, which is probably doing cooler A.I stuff than Baidu. Furthermore, he mentioned awhile back that he wants flexibility on the projects he works on and working for someone else, you won’t really get that.

@Naim08 you mentioned BlenderLabs. Their projects involve the topics I have been exploring in this channel - in a very simple form...:

@anuraglahon16 probably [[[i for i in range(0,10)] for j in range(0,10)] for k in range(0,10)]

An article in the BBC: read the part about automated jobs... we are in the wrong sector...

They are not including politicians... this is a pity... I will be easy to automate that!

@evaristoc I find that surprising because the only job i've seen being automated to some extent is lawyer

@apottr Machine learning is automated programming....
So basically, we're putting ourselves out of the job. But with the slow progress being made in making machine learning reliable, it's probably going to be a while before that should be concerning xD

@Naim08 - can you please clarify your comment? Did you mean that Andrew's WIFE runs BlenderLabs?

@becausealice2 I dunno, I wouldn't necessarily call ML automated programming
this is the only instance of "automated programming" with ML that I can think of off the top of my head

I saw the MTG card and new that I was destined to read that.
@apottr It's not necessarily true, I admit, but it's also not necessarily false. I'm not speaking in terms of ML building software end-to-end, but there is a massive amount of programming no longer being done by humans. @evaristoc knows how much I've been agonizing over this recently :joy:. patterns are being found by machines that humans aren't providing instruction on how or what to look for

I have been geeking out over it obsessively the last few days. I was that weird asshole in Starbucks who leaned over to a complete stranger and told them every detail I knew of about how software can help diagnose rare genetic disorders.
Fortunately They did genuinely seem interested, or else were really good at humoring the nerd :joy:

The one that's had me agonizing so much lately has been YouTube's Restricted Mode which I'm went rogue because of patterns it found. I've been trying to put my thoughts down about it but balancing being concise, accurate, and factual has proven tricky. Especially with YouTube glitches being found every hour :(
It makes it hard to not accidentally become accusatory.

What's wrong with the restricted mode?
other than it disappearing content
Alice Jiang

It's been verified as discriminatory and violating YouTube's on ToS
People have tested and found that it blocks content with LGBT tags and keywords, and my theory is it found patterns of mature content in videos by LGBT creators, such as videos about life journeys (which, as tragic as it is, often contain mature topics such as abuse and self harm that restricted mode is designed to block), and taught itself that LGBT content is mature... if that makes sense, I'm not sure how well I'm explaining myself
Alice Jiang

It's also blocking entire channels even when some of the videos are fine, so it's probably counts individual creators as a common pattern of potentially mature content
