_LunaLika_ Wenn man seinen Ex mit der Neuen trifft und der Hund dir seine Nase in den Schritt schiebt, sollte man nicht “Awww, wie das Herrchen” sagen.

Noahpinion The cool thing about cyberpunk coming true is that we got ALL the cyberpunk futures.

China: universal surveillance and social control

America: cool gadgets and staggering inequality

Russia: shadowy plots, covert ops, and assasins

Japan: Japan

patrickc I'd pay a *lot* more for books if I could see the highlights, annotations, and marginalia of friends or people I follow.

If books really do matter in the world, feels like we'd benefit from a lot more reading technology. Getting books onto the screen was a good *first* step.

Altimor @patrickc Yes, Kindle changed the way we read books and then… stopped there. I want social highlights, notes, flash cards, and fractal reading (each chapter summarized in 1 paragraph, expandable on several levels if you want to dig deeper).

DonDahlmann 1. Bulgur aus der Verpackung nehmen, Verpackung wegwerfen.
2. Verpackung aus dem Mülleiner fischen um die Garzeit abzulesen. Erneut wegwerfen
3. Internet
4. Verpackung erneut aus dem Mülleimer fischen, weil man die Garzeit vergessen hat.
5. Umrühren.
Macht ihr doch aus so, oder?

robinsloan This is one of those thoughts that, even if not completely airtight, is so interesting and lovely you're glad to have heard it: maybe "works-by-individuals feel more like one half of a conversation than works-by-groups" patreon.com/posts/update-1… via @michael_nielsen

seb_ruder @NAACLHLT @chrmanning Standard CS degree does not have a single lecture on how to design an experiment. In grad school, vast % of PhD students have to do experiments w/o having ever been taught on how to do this before. Problems are unsurprising.

seb_ruder @NAACLHLT @chrmanning A promising direction in this line: Memory networks, entity networks.
Chris: Inductive bias is not language-specific; entities need to be tracked e.g. by animals for perception. Early work in recursive neural networks can also be applied to vision.

seb_ruder @NAACLHLT @chrmanning Yejin Choi: Language specific inductive bias is necessary to push NLG. Inductive bias as architectural choices. Current biases are not good at going beyond the sentence-level but language is about more than a sentence. We require building a world model.

seb_ruder @NAACLHLT @chrmanning: "We should have more inductive biases. We are clueless about how to add inductive biases so we do dataset augmentation, create pseudo training data to encode those biases. Seems like a strange way to go about doing things."

zephoria This is a classic case of why @BostonJoan and I are arguing for strategic silence: theguardian.com/commentisfree/… Until you can be strategic, be silent or you cause harm.
