derwahremawa Die Nudeln-mit-Ketchup-Aufregung bringt halt so vieles zusammen: Einprügeln auf Schwache (SPD), Ernährungspanik, Foodie-Arroganz, Klassismus, Berlin-Bashing, alles auf einmal zu haben. Kein Wunder, dass das abgeht.

mmbollmann @texttheater ISO language codes are pretty recognizable, I'd say. You could always wrap them in stylish colorful boxes to "iconify" them. 🤷‍♂️

emilymbender Fung at keynote talking about utility of empathy in chat bots.

EMB: I think that empathy suggests more than recognizing interlocutor emotion, namely a self that can enter into commitments. Is there a UX design path that could appropriately frame synthetic empathy?

fmailhot Are leaderboards divided into "weight classes"? Seems like it would be good to have bucketed ranges of e.g. # of params, amount of data, compute time, etc. Presumably others at have thought more about this than me.

radamihalcea Great insight from Liang Huang’s keynote: When it comes to simultaneous tasks such as speech-to-speech MT, “forget about sequence to sequence”, do instead prefix-to-prefix. Even during training when entire seqs are available, it‘s beneficial to only consider prefixes. pic.twitter.com/cswf1l8Ids
