tevnpowers I've been feeling this so much lately! And spending a lot of time thinking about what a version of this could look like. I'd really like to decouple NLP/ML usage from NLP/ML development. We can be practitioners of this work w/o having to be experts in engineering AND the domain. twitter.com/yoavgo/status/…

yoavgo if anything, i'd like to work on taking the CS/NLP/ML expert (=me) out of the equation! twitter.com/yoavgo/status/…

jae_strandberg Two new items that I can add to my list of words becoming trendy outside the Nordic countries (like hygge, fika, kalsarikännit) are apparently Swedish ”flygskam” (’flight shame’) and ”tågskryt” (’train bragging’).

curtosys This is a perspective I don’t think I’d fully appreciated. English as default skews what *research* counts.

I’d love to see a test along the lines of “It’s not SOTA unless you tested on more than one language, from different families, with similar performance.”

sebgehr Computing p(y|x} for NLG is limited due to limited resources and because it conflates grammaticality and task objectives.

strubell Nice write-up by @_KarenHao at @techreview on our @ACL2019_Italy paper characterizing the environmental and $$ cost of training & developing big NLP models. A little more sensational than I would have put it, but a topic that needs attn! ✨Link to pre-preprint in the article✨ twitter.com/_KarenHao/stat…

yoavgo @deliprao well, if they redefine NLP like they redefined vision before "flattening" it, it may indeed get flattened in 5 years.

c_borstell As this presentation is given in BSL, I'm picking up some BSL signs. At one point I was like "why is she mentioning 'Hebrew phonology'?" but 1 sec later the interpreter says "use phonology". BSL sign USE ≈ Israeli SL sign ISRAEL/HEBREW/JEWISH.

nlpmattg @boknilev Fair question. The thing that concerns me is the strong incentive that everyone (especially people in privileged groups) has to go to arXiv first. It's a prisoner's dilemma. Individuals are better off submitting to arXiv, but it harms the community by breaking blind review.

nlpmattg I've had a lot of conversations about this with a lot of people at NAACL. I now think there's an even simpler fix to all of this. (1) Ban arxiv before review, and (2) speed up TACL, to give a better outlet for those that don't want to wait for the next conference. twitter.com/nlpmattg/statu…
