@GerritKloss @DanielKingChess The way neural machine translation (NMT) systems work makes them powerful learners, but also prone to "hallucinations", i.e. outputs that seem to have nothing to do with the input and due to random statistical noise instead, like "Schimpanse" here...

ezraklein In 2015, Bill Gates told me a deadly flu-like pandemic spreading under globalized conditions was the most predictable disaster in the history of the human race, and so there was no excuse to not be prepared for it.

I'm thinking about that a lot lately. vox.com/2015/5/27/8660…

hwitteman Tips I have found the most helpful in my ongoing attempts to avoid academic overwhelm:

1) I can say no right away, but I have to wait 24 hours to say yes.

2) If it's an invitation/request with a date in the future, I imagine it's next week and evaluate it from that perspective.

skglas Will noch was zu "Sprache und Zahlen" sagen, es sollte doch mE immer von "bekannten" oder "nachgewiesenen" Corona-Fällen die Rede sein. Die Dunkelfeld-Zahl ist doch nicht bekannt. Also sind die Hellfeld-Zahlen testing-abhängig.

rubenmcloop Bewährte Strategie in Deutschland seit 1945: lieber die Störenfriede entlassen als die Nazis. Sind ja auch loyaler als ein Whistleblower. Un-fucking-fassbar. Oder wie es in der neuerdings heißt: gas - wasser - schießen.
