It’s easy to laugh at Stephen Wolfram, and I don’t like some of his business practices, but he’s an excellent writer and is full of interesting ideas. This long introduction to neural network prediction algorithms is an example. I have no idea if Wolfram wrote this book chapter himself or if he hired one of his paid theorem-provers to do it—I guess it’s probably some sort of collaboration—but it doesn’t really matter. It all looks really cool.
