Oftentimes, we live and we go through life just accepting things for the way they are. And oftentimes, all we have to do is make a decision to change.
Crippling creative anxiety is a different place, and I don’t live there anymore.
Наш мозг принимает решение за полсекунды до того, как вы осознаёте, что это решение принимаете
Art is above all. Artwork is what's left behind after we die
Маленькие пожертвования для благотворительных организаций очень важны
"My art seems to get me into trouble, but for some reason, that doesn't stop me."
Когда мы горим и жаждем, у нас не бывает проблем
The future should not be self-driving. I think the best way we can put these fears and anxieties aside is to take the driver seat. Be intentional about this; be kind to one another.
This old song that if you're free you're not the customer, you're the product. It's quickly becoming this: You are the training data. By using this system, you are giving up information to some purpose that you may not be completely aware of.
We need to get people on our teams that reflect the broader community.
How do we avoid building our ugly past into the future? Maybe put another way: How do we think about gathering data that reflects the future we want to build?
If we're taking all of the past data to predict the future, doesn't that mean we're going to have all of the problems of the past?
The important thing to understand about machine learning is that what they're great at is figuring out what's normal. And then predicting the next normal thing. . . . Question is, what if normal is garbage? What if we're giving it data that has inherent bias in it?
A lot of the times we think about machine learning, algorithms, as being the work of data scientists and of engineers. . . . There is also an important role in design for all of it, for the presentation of this information.
It's really about setting appropriate expectations for what the system can do and channeling behavior in the right way.
What I found the more that I work with and design these machine learning experiences is that it's less about designing for a fixed path through information and much more about trying to put some guardrails up around the weird stuff that the people will ask these 'smart systems.'
Creative person or not, if you've been tuned into the news at all the past few years — no matter what your political stance may be you've felt this national, maybe global feeling of anxiety.
We want to provide equitable opportunities as opposed to equal opportunities because there's a big difference.
In the civic realm, what are our responsibilities to make sure that people are being represented well and that every single opportunity that comes their way is not a one-size-fits-all solution or representation?
By improving out ability to empathise, committing ourselves to more meaningful human connections, and considering the legacy we're leaving behind, we can be more than passive bystanders to history, or surface-level social activists.
"...but if you do your best, you can never be angry that anxiety won, right? I gave it everything I got and if it didn't work out ... that's ok I'm still worthy, I'm still creative, I'm still authentic and yeah, I'm still lovable."
"..but if I've recognized what my triggers (to anxiety) are, I can actively work on making it better and ... embracing whatever the universe wants to throw my way..."
Creativity thrives when devoid of the borders you build within your own mind.
Stories are powerful, especially within the context that they are told or represented.
My perspective as an ally is not the same as someone who is directly affected by the issue that I am exploring in my work.
When I rise, they rise with me.
