Opinion / Analysis

The second coming of XML

When XML was first introduced, the W3C XML Working Group took a very unusual step: They created a language for transformations. This effort is now leading to a re-emergence of XML as the need for mapping between data representations becomes more and more pressing.

Kurt Cagle explains why this is the case. You don’t have to be a developer to understand the code samples, but even if you skip over them you should still see why he is right. (8 min, or 6 min if you skip over the code).

AI has an invisible misinformation problem

Perhaps obvious, but Alberto Romero highly recommends reading until the end, and you should. (7 min).
