Models, models, models
Talk about models has always abounded, especially in recent years. AI models, ML models, statistical models, and others. People often use these terms in a very general sense, but what is a model, actually? The world deals with models unconsciously, all the time. Without them, people would have a hard time navigating their way through life.
