wellformedness Some unsolicited advice: write your evaluation script so that it's completely independent from your training or prediction code. Otherwise you'll have to do a heavy refactor when you want to do system comparison.

wellformedness also just a reminder that if you've seen me post a million times and i haven't responded to your email/text/dm that posting and other things are different energies

honnibal To clarify slightly: predicting embeddings instead of word IDs always seemed sort of obvious, so I wondered why it wasn't done. The (maybe well known?) answer is that L2 loss doesn't work well at predicting embeddings. Kumar and Tsvetkov introduce a new loss to solve this.

honnibal So it turns out that Language Modelling with Approximate Outputs (LMAO) idea I've been working on for spaCy works well! So well that the work must have been finished before I even started 🤷‍♂️Great paper by Kumar and Tsevtkov 👉 arxiv.org/abs/1812.04616

RobThorley @NoRemainNoGain You know what really sticks in my craw? Faster Payments. That's an EU initiative. Damn them for making money transfers immediate, and stopping banks sitting on our cash for three days or more! At least now we can go back to bartering with pebbles, just like the old days...

NoRemainNoGain "We have to get out of the European Union in March", said Chris Grayling on Sky.
Why? Why do we have to get out of the EU? What are they doing to us that is so intolerable? Is it the opt outs? The rebate? The frictionless trade? The waived roaming charges?
