Since I was a child, I have been a big fan of cartoons and comics and we have many favorite cartoons cut-out and pasted around the house.
One of the fun aspects of KDnuggets is creating cartoons on some current Data Science / Machine Learning topics. I send my ideas to a good cartoonist Jon Carter and he makes a drawing.
I am also am a big fan of France and French language, with many visits to France for business, conferences, and tourism.
So I was very excited this year when my two passions were combined.
This spring I have received a letter from Hatier, a french publisher, who wanted to use one of KDnuggets Cartoons –
When Self-Driving Car + Machine Learning takes you too far … in their textbook,
Let’s Meet Up!, Anglais 1re, a English textbook designed to help french high-school readers to learn English via popular culture.
Here is the cartoon as it appears in the textbook.
How far are Americans willing to let AI into their lives?
Car: “No, I will not take you to A-1 Steakhouse.
I recommend you go to the gym first, and then to V8 vegetarian restaurant”
- Explain the cartoonist message
- Say if you find this cartoon funny and why
- Imagine the man’s response
