Trump’s tactic to attack black people and women: insult their intelligence | US news


Donald Trump has an endless and varied supply of insults and playground taunts to hurl at opponents but appears to have a one-track mind when it comes to African Americans and women.

An analysis of the Trump Twitter Archive website shows that the US president has used the words “dumb” or “dummy” 236 times since 2011, and on 14 occasions since becoming taking office in January last year. He has targeted men and women, black and white.

And why does he keep going back to the insult on intelligence when it comes to African-American leaders in this country?

Google, Facebook back African machine intelligence program — Quartz Africa


The first dedicated masters degree program for machine intelligence in Africa is launching in September with backing from tech leaders Google and Facebook.

The African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS), which created the program, says  the African Masters of Machine Intelligence (AMMI) is crucial so African countries don’t get left behind as advancements in machine intelligence rapidly develop.

“The lack of MI researchers from Africa means that many opportunities to use MI to create a better and more stable world are being missed,” said Moustapha Cissé, founder of the program. He noted Africa is on the lower end of a “technology gap” in the field. 

This is why the program is called the “African Masters” in machine intelligence, as a branding strategy but also because…
