cdutilhnovaes Scientific humanism sounds like a good label to this position that some years ago would have seemed too trivial to be stated, but now needs to be defended 😞 twitter.com/lastpositivist…

shravanvasishth @DrLearnasaurus it must be 3D, a bivariate, so I can use a knife (or a samurai sword for dramatic effect) to slice it to show a conditional distribution that students then have to eat (to internalize the concept of a conditional).

shravanvasishth For the next summer school I need to make a bivariate Gaussian shaped cake, both marginals N(0,1). Suggestions on how to achieve this welcome. Do they make Gaussian-shaped cake templates?

cfiesler A plea to everyone out there finishing up the syllabus for your fall computing-related class: put some ethics on it. This is a thread to tell you why you should do that and to offer some tips on how. Massive cultural change within computing starts with a single syllabus!

wellformedness @tschfflr Or they could like, take a deep breath and talk back to themselves. The idea that everything's just for survelliance or adtech is nonsense, ridiculous on its face. Accessibility and information science, unalloyed goods, benefit enormously from NLP, for instance.

wellformedness @tschfflr If they don't want to take the step of leaving the field altogether they could work on formal language theory, computational modeling psycholinguistics, advocate for better conditions at their institution and at professional organizations.

brynguist So basically, ergative is marked twice when the meaning is, like, EXTRA ergative? That's new...

emilymbender @tschfflr @SeeTedTalk @dirk_hovy My own path into this is quite recent: The CLMS advisory board told us in 2015 or so that we should be integrating ethics into the curriculum. I looked around for someone to come teach us, but struck out. And so I thought: Okay, it's up to me, I guess. >>

CerstinMahlow @tschfflr It was a bit hidden in my answer: CL is not NLP, there are good places to learn/do NLP and there are still some places to learn/do CL. And I‘m not an NLP person, but a computational linguist ;)

roman_klinger @tschfflr I worked in BioNLP for a while. Life science researchers need information extraction technology. There are some other questionable applications, but it's definitely not all bad.

nsaphra The "meritocracy" is limited to a competition of wealthy people from wealthy countries on purpose. People from elite universities are classist because they're afraid to compete with working class kids. They're racist because they're afraid to compete with all of China.

2. Even distribution of human obsolescence (if we let the robotics/vision people run the show, we replace the jobs of people already seen as disposable -- truckers, factory workers -- but we have the capacity to eliminate the need to work for all)
