Phil 4.7.16

From Communications of the ACM’s Kode Vicious columnTo understand the first downside, you should find a friend who works on compilers and ask if he or she has ever looked inside gcc (GNU C compiler), and, after the crying stops and you have bolstered your friend’s spirits, ask if he or she has ever tried to extend the compiler. If you are still friends at that point, your final question should be about submitting patches upstream into this supposedly open source project.

  • Continuing Technology, Humanness, and Trust: Rethinking Trust in Technology.
    • Page 894: trust is most often treated as a psychological construct (i.e., trusting
      beliefs). As a psychological construct, trusting beliefs exists apart from any attempt to measure it (Schwab, 1980). Yet knowing what the construct means helps one to measure it properly. Hence, the trusting beliefs construct will influence its components. Third, we used reflective first-order factors because we did not seek to explain variance in trusting beliefs.

      • So trust can be measured using inferential models? As an influence system maybe???
    • At 6.2. Study 2: Methodology, page 903. The second study is more related to the credibility cues that people use to determine the humanness of an interface. Not sure if it’s relevant to what I’m working on, but it is interesting to see how they include the second study which follows up on the open questions from the first.
  • In the paper above, they use something called partial least squares structural equation modeling (PLS-SEM). SmartPLS is a system that uses this, and there’s a presentation on YouTube that shows how it’s used to predict shadow banking. Need to look into this some more as a way of predicting outcomes based on behavior.

  • Sent an email to John and Bob about using the new CSEs
  • Set up the rating app so that Andy and Margarita can use it to create the json characterization. Had a hell of a time getting the executable jar built. The artifact builder in Intellij doesn’t synchronize with the dev process. I was not including jars that were required and getting a “Error: A JNI error has occurred, please check your installation and try again” error on execution. I wound up having to delete the artifact, commit, create a new artifact and then create the jar and executable.
  • Sent the Rating app as a zip. Not sure if the filters are letting it through. Hey! It works!
  • Sent Aaron a rant on what I’d like to get the db up and running. Done! Yay!
  • Finalized REST discussions with Jeremy
