BludgerTrack: 52.9-47.1 to Labor

Movement to the Coalition on the BludgerTrack poll aggregate, after a better-than-usual result in the only new federal poll for the week.

With Newspoll holding its fire over the weekend of the New South Wales state election, the only new federal poll of the week came from Essential Research, which produced a relatively strong result for the Coalition. The BludgerTrack aggregate accordingly moves slightly in their favour, with Labor’s lead down from 53.3-46.7 to 52.9-47.1. This translates into a gain for the Coalition of two on the seat projection, with New South Wales and Victoria providing one apiece.

  1. Carry over from the previous thread…

    Andy Murray, thanks. I’ve been following complex systems but haven’t jumped in. As you say, Goedel bites, but so does the world. We’re embedded. And that’s why it works. And only Goedel cares. 😉 (Smart arse way of saying that unless you allow the AI to manipulate the world it will not become aware.)

    EGT: I’ve changed my mind on counterfactual thinking, I think it extends the sub-processes within the layers as a means of choosing an action, which then feeds back to learning. Intelligence is a measure of the ability to remember and accurately hypothesise, but it occurs across levels. For instance counterfactuals apply to learning to swim (level 2) as they do to playing chess (level 5).

  2. LR,

    Hofstadter argued that somewhere within Goedel’s Theorem could be discovered the essence of AI with genuine creativity. Its an idea that has stuck with me ever since I read Goedel, Escher, Bach back in the 80s. Put another way, the essence of intelligence and awareness is having a system complex enough to be self-referential at some level – just as number theory can be self-referential.

  3. Hey LR,

    Intelligence is a measure of the ability to remember and accurately hypothesise

    This is where transfer learning kicks in. The biggest barrier to AI effectively transferring domain-specific knowledge to new domains is the ability to automatically generate abstract models of new situations that are congruent with existing abstractions that the AI already knows about.

    The process of abstraction itself tends towards over-fitting or over-training, but its hard to know in advance where the óver-fitting has occurred, or what features of the training set are the ones that will arise in new contexts. This is obvious from a philosophical point of view, but even in simple transfer learning tasks it’s proving to be quite a barrier.

    I’ll give you two examples. I did some work trying to do opponent modelling in repeated games, using reinforcement learning and game theory. Our approach was come up with ideal types, generate optimal equilibrium policies to counter those types, and then choose between policies at the execution phase by identifying how close the actual play of our opponents was to the ideals we’d generated offline. It was pretty effective in a simple type of game, and kick-ares against human players (computer science PhDs the lot of them). But, as soon as the game itself got too complicated, the use of ideal types went out the window and we came unstuck. People have tried the same thing in automated poker tournaments, but slight differences in the way the complex probabilities are reasoned over wrt bluffing makes it really really hard to be effective against a range of players- so the same story.


    This week the federal Coalition government decided to dump 90 per cent of the coal projects that had been submitted to its big underwriting program, and chose instead a shortlist dominated by renewables backed by battery storage and pumped hydro, and some gas and just one coal upgrade.

    The choice may have been driven more by politics than economics, given the project developers were asked for only a broad outline of their proposal and there is an election just a few weeks away.

    But when the final detailed tenders come in later this year – assuming the program survives the upcoming election campaign – the economic case for favouring renewables and storage projects should be crystal clear, if the latest numbers from global analysts BloombergNEF are anything to go by.

    The middle column is also interesting.

    These costs reflect the combined system, wind or solar plus the battery, and include capex, and operating and maintenance costs for the power generating asset (ie solar or wind) and the battery.

    The range in estimated costs for wind and solar plus storage reflects the number of hours of storage.

    Solar/wind with storage is now as cheap or cheaper than closed cycle gas turbine plants.

    cue mindless rant from P1.

    GEB was a seed for me too. Then I realized a dozen years ago that model building is how we interpret the world, and then that this must be never-ending and constantly truthed against the ‘real world’ so as not to stray. And the best way to truth is to manipulate the world and observe its responses. (As a philosophy you and up with Science.) But testing the world is as easy as moving your head, or touching a chair. The feedback confirms your world-model. Self-referencing is “merely” a powerful technique to add sophistication. It may be necessary, but I’m not convinced it is sufficient.

    Sorry, rambling now.

  6. Andy Murray, I’m going to call it a night, but the example of your AI failing at complex games makes me wonder if your AI needs additional layers of complexity above the complexity of the game itself. As humans do easily, your AI needs to understand human behaviour in order to play games that involve complex human behaviours, like poker. An idle thought. Thanks for the discussion. 🙂

  8. Lord Haw Haw of Arabia

    Ironic to see there has been a long discussion here about artificial intelligence (which I will have to catch up on), when the distinct lack of intelligence on show in the UK is putting the livelihoods of so many people at risk.

    Theresa May will surely resign before this April 12th deadline – I wonder whether she will call a general election before she does that?

    GPs join AMA in outrage over chemists denying patients a $240 a year saving on their medicine bills.

  12. Does this graph say that Renewable Energy sources aren’t quite cheap enough yet to fit into the cheap bulk despatchable category?

  13. ‘The significant thing, though, is the trend. Non-major party winners nearly always get re-elected…’

    Except Windsor and Oakeshott didn’t.

    Of course, they didn’t stand. But they didn’t stand because they knew they weren’t going to be re elected.

    The indies who supported Bracks – and reaped a massive amount of publicity and praise for doing so – were all (ultimately) defeated.

    And no indie has been followed by an indie, which suggests that the reason they were elected weren’t because of profound disillusionment with the majors but something more personal – either their own personal profile or the unpopularity of their opponent.

    ‘..But there will be no going back. It would not matter what the major parties did or how well-behaved they became, the days of a 90 per cent monopoly are over and they may as well start learning a more consensus approach with the minor parties. And vice-versa. Because minor parties and independents will have to get results for the growing number of “I want now” voters.’

    So what happens if the minors and indies don’t get results?

    Before the last election, minors and indies were important in Victorian politics. Now they’re not. So there’s no need to consult with them, so they have no negotiating power. Which means that, like the three Bracks indies before them, their ability to deliver will see a whittling away of their vote.

    The article also ignores that indies are only being elected (federally, at least) at the cost of one side of politics. If this trend continues, it will be the Coalition which is unable to form government in the future without negotiating with indies. Which could lead, very naturally, to the formation of a new centrist party.

    If that happened (and if Hull is allowed to speculate so am I!) this would eat into possible indie victories in two ways – firstly, a new centrist party would make their existence less necessary and secondly, there would be more distrust of them (McGowan could only get elected by assuring voters she would not do deals to form government with either major, suggesting that going the Windsor/Oakeshott route was a deal breaker).

  14. Crispin Hull does say something that resonates with my experience though:

    It is summed up in the phrase: “I want this more than anything.”

    And the “this” is definitely not “a competent government that acts only in the overall interest of everyone”.

    Rather it is: “I want action on climate change”; “I want miners off my farm”; “I want my river to flow”; “I want a new tunnel so I can get to work quicker”; “I want a school or hospital”; “I want and end to Muslim immigration”; “I want to end racism” and so on.

    And they voted this way in NSW more than ever before. Not only for parties but for or against individuals in parties according to how voters related to that individual in the self-centered universe that no longer cares much about anyone else or the broader picture.

    As my mother used to say to me All. The. Time. ‘Do you want it or do you need it? If you just want it is that a good enough reason for getting it?’

    This could be the solution to the Minors. Do we, in general, and the people who vote for them in particular, really want their narrow cast view of the world in our politics, or do we need a party of government prepared to govern for the majority of needs? But co-operate with special interests when it is good for the nation to do so?

    For the record, I’ve just read the ‘blue book’ because I like to comment in a qualified manner.

    It is one of the most unadulterated pieces of twaddle I’ve ever read. It is replete with pseudo-scientific claptrap, written by someone who has not had any operational experience.

  16. simon holmes à court @simonahac

    this mail-out from @JoshFrydenberg — at taxpayer expense! — is full of misleading statements, intentionally deceptive charts and outright lies.

    Remember, folks, this is your Treasurer speaking!!

  17. C@

    It’s actually a flaw in Hull’s argument, because very few indies win off the back of one issue, so I’m not sure that that holds true.

    Most indies seem to win because of dissatisfaction with the local member. This also seems to be why they don’t get followed by another indie, and the seat goes back to whoever held it originally – the person they’re dissatisfied with has gone, and so voters have no trouble going back to the major party they used to vote for.

    Interestingly, indies who do get elected on the back of one issue – Xenophon being the shining example – don’t even have to deliver on that issue to be re elected.

  18. Under our system, any new third force that aims to gain a significant presence in Parliament at the expense of the majors would need to establish a strong, geographically concentrated base. 15% or even 20% support across the nation won’t do it. The Country Party / Nationals established such a base at the outset and have managed to keep much of it. One Nation briefly pulled it off in Queensland.

  19. I just read the Frydenburg climate mailout, and literally spat my cornflakes across the room after the first sentence.
    Never had that reaction to anything in my life!

  20. When you borrow to buy a house there are two considerations the lender takes to account

    One is the deposit you have and therefore the amount of the loan (including covering purchase costs)

    This establishes the Loan to Valuation as acceptable to the lender

    The other is your ability to service the loan being applied for from your income and your future income prospects

    The fact you have saved a deposit lends confidence

    The fact that you are in secure employment lends confidence as to the future ability to service (including when interest rates increase so a contingent margin)

    Lending is over 25 to 30 years

    In the first instance, when approaching a lender the prospective borrower has to have the confidence in their ability to service over the term of the loan

    Which brings us to the reason house prices are stalling

    The economy and the delivery of the economy to wages, security of wages and wages growth

    The reason house prices are under pressure is the stalling economy, an economy which is under duress and has been for the last 5 years since austerity leads to confidence has been the agenda of government

    The feed into house prices is that they have been stalling for the period of time they have already been stalling over

    For every seller there is a willing buyer

    The economic malaise of the Nation, over the past 5 years is delivering the outcomes

    Pressure on retail sales

    Failure of media companies

    Falling house prices

    The carry on re any impact of restricting borrowing by property speculators is a side show and a deflection – pure and simple

    House prices are a factor of the economy and the delivery of the performance of the economy

    Strength begets strength

    Weakness begets weakness

  23. Thanks BK, great work as usual and it leads me to wonder if we will ever rid ourselves of arseholes like Eddie McGuire.

  24. The Saturday Paper article (thanks for the link, BK) about (mostly female) teacher harassment in our schools is very worrying.
    Classic responses by employers, and their appointees (the Principal, DPs and others), such as victim blaming, are used to justify inaction.
    But schools have unique problems, too.
    Because they are children, and the law says they must attend school, it can be difficult, and time consuming, to suspend the students.

    Worse, fee-paying parents have far too much power, and are often used to getting their own way. A suspension for sexual harassment would be a serious blot on the child’s record, and parents will fight hard to prevent it.
    Legal battles, with more victim blaming, can occur. The school is just not equipped to handle it.

    Many female teachers who reported sexual harassment to their respective employers were told they needed to dress differently to temper male hormones and, in some cases, to even consider this attention a compliment. Others were told the behaviour wasn’t a problem, rather it was just the student’s personality – more than one respondent who reported abusive behaviour was dismissed with the excuse, “He doesn’t respect female teachers.”

    Even when administrative bodies did take teachers’ complaints seriously, it wasn’t always guaranteed the parents would agree. A male teacher once told me that a Year 10 student in the Catholic school in which he taught had, with the support of his parents, refused to apologise to a young teacher against whom he had made a rape threat. His parents had argued, “Boys will be boys, and there are bigger things to worry about.” In private schools in particular, paying high fees appears to give parents great sway over disciplinary actions.

    Reading the entire article makes it clear many of the worst problems exist in so-called ‘private’ schools. This is one of the best arguments for the state to cease funding non-Gov’t schools. The state could then offer to pick up each school and fully fund it as a state school, if parents are unable to do so.

  25. Medical practitioners dominated the highest earning occupations, with surgeons posting the biggest average incomes with a national average taxable income of $394,866.

    Anaesthetists filled the second spot with an average income of $367,343, and internal medicine specialists came in third with an average income of $299,378.

    Financial dealers took fourth place with an average income of $261,008, while psychiatrists took fifth place with an average income of $216,075.

    The lowest-earning professions were dominated by hospitality, with farm work and cleaning also featuring.

  32. Many months ago, at a suggestion (from Boerwar?) I offered guessing on the Brexit outcome. There was (and still is) huge uncertainty so I invented these plausible scenarios.

    (a) Hard Brexit – No Deal

    (c) Brexit Extension – Negotiations Continue
    (d) Brexit Extension – New Referendum
    (e) Revoke article 50 (withdrawn Brexit)
    (f) Something else
    (g) Don’t care

    which Britain would go for, sometime on or before 2019 March 29 11:00pm (UK time).

    That time is in just under 30 minutes. As we all know it currently looks like the can has been kicked down the road by 2 weeks until April 12 and Britain has been unable to decide. So my scenarios score a big fat fail. But in the spirit of the game here are the three guesses that got ‘closest to the pin’.

    A legal eagle from the USA on Planet America last night said this was the first time ever a prosecutor had handed over the responsibility of making the final call on such an inquiry to the AG. Previously the prosecutor/investigator would make those conclusions and put recommendations to the AG for approval. There is something fishy about this Meuller investigation conclusion if you ask me.
