ClimateBen Remember:

0.5°C safety
1°C irreversible feedbacks (now)
1.5°C a dangerous world
2°C an extremely dangerous world
2.5°C moving towards Hell
3°C horror
3.5°C death of organised society
4°C human survival in doubt
5°C likely extinction
6°C our current trajectory

Climate 'change'.

annargrs Here's a summary post on problems with huge models that dominate these days. I put together several different discussion threads with/by @yoavgo, @jaseweston, @sleepinyourhat, @bkbrd, @alex_conneau, @SeeTedTalk.

timoconnorbl Idly reflecting: there's been a psychological sea-change in regard to Brexit. I don't think the EU27 care any more. The feeling now is that a country willing to give power to someone like Johnson is not a serious country, and is just an external problem to be managed.

living_marble Imagine being the richest man on Earth when scientists tell us we have a decade to get our carbon emissions under control and instead of spending your billions on THAT you're spending your billions on rockets while having the gall to claim you're doing it for future generations. twitter.com/mims/status/11…

nlpmattg In general, I think this a strong argument for making smaller datasets, and testing the *same* model on many different datasets. These models are incredibly good feature extractors, if you give them enough data. Don't give them enough data to let them exploit quirks. twitter.com/LeonDerczynski…

GilesPalaeoLab This is a BAD TAKE.

Being a scientist (and/or academia) is a JOB. It should not have to be an obsession. You can be passionate about it as a JOB. You can also do science as a hobby. But it does not have to rule your life, and you should not have to live-eat-breath science. twitter.com/blotreport/sta…

mdlhx We find that our parser does not learn similar information for these two, unless we use recursive composition as in this work: aclweb.org/anthology/N19-…, this is good news, maybe we have not yet found the best way to use this recursive layer! 3/4

mdlhx <TLDR> We do a linguistic investigation of a neural parser, looking at agreement and transitivity information in auxiliary verb constructions (AVCs) in comparison to finite verbs (FMVs). 1/4

c_borstell OK, so some points on posters in :

Posters shouldn't be seen as a 2nd grade stage presentation. They are often seen this way, unfortunately, but some topics work better in a poster format. But conference organizers need to ensure posters are dealt with adequately. 1/6 pic.twitter.com/Bq5pIoP6fx

benbenhh BERT is very good at being right for the wrong reasons.
Great analysis of BERT's ability to learn exploiting annotation artifacts better than other models: arxiv.org/abs/1907.07355
Performance drops from 77% to random chance level when these artifacts are removed.

gdm3000 Amazing!! Deep Learning-based NLP techniques are going to revolutionize the way we write software. Here's Deep TabNine, a GPT-2 model trained on around 2 million files from GitHub. Details at tabnine.com/blog/deep pic.twitter.com/VWB4XsyD4T

LeonDerczynski This reproducibility exercise is a great step for NLP, with a really broad range of complex tasks: wordpress.let.vupr.nl/lrec-reproduct… -- I wonder if anyone will manage to produce any of these often quite important results?
