Three people have complained that my comments RSS isn’t working. I don’t use RSS readers enough to even quite know what you do with a comments RSS, but obviously it’d be nice if I could make it work. However, I’ve done all I can think of (i.e. upload a fresh version of the WordPress default template for it) and it still doesn’t work. Perhaps some of the people who want it would like to help fix it? Vika’s link to the validation thing for RSS looks good except I still don’t quite know what’s going on. Other than it’s not valid. Look, here’s a textified copy of the php file that’s not producing a decent RSS feed.

    once you are working on RSS anyway – is there a chance to get full-text RSS?

Four visual registers for imaginaries of machine vision

I’m thrilled to announce another publication from our European Research Council (ERC)-funded research project on Machine Vision: Gabriele de Setaand Anya Shchetvina‘s paper analysing how Chinese AI companies visually present machine vision technologies. They find that the Chinese machine vision imaginary is global, blue and competitive.  […]
