douwekiela Turning the famous Fred Jelinek quote around: “Every time I _hire_ a linguist, the performance of my NLP system goes up” is one of the goals here. Everyone can build models that cannot be fooled as easily; and everyone can help create examples to train next-gen AI systems. 4/n

douwekiela Dynabench, in essence, is a scientific experiment: can we make faster progress if we collect data dynamically, with humans and models in the loop, rather than in the old-fashioned static way? 3/n pic.twitter.com/sJk1GgkvJd

douwekiela Static benchmarks have been extremely important for AI, but also have well-known issues: they saturate quickly, are susceptible to overfitting, contain exploitable annotator artifacts and biases, and have unclear or imperfect evaluation metrics. 2/n

ClimateHuman Here's an article I wrote in which I urge readers not to descend into the despair of doom, but instead to live courageously with the truth of ongoing climate and ecological breakdown and to do everything in their power to stop it.

esalesk One insight that's stayed with me is the importance of testing on *real* low-resource languages: only then do you see e.g. diacritics present and not, mixed dialects, code-switching, and other variation you wouldn't see simulating low-resource settings in HRLs! 💡

jayvanbavel As I'm talking, I realized my kids are just staring at me with perplexed looks on their faces.

They weren't horrified, but seemed almost confused by what was transpiring as I raised my voice to explain how we have many mental processes that operate outside our awareness.

jayvanbavel I had to teach my Introduction to Psychology class today to 300+ students from my cell phone while I was trapped in my apartment building elevator with my two young kids.

This has to go down as my most surreal and stressful teaching experience.

davidschlangen This is amazing on many levels. For SDS community, a great achievement. It also shows how much there still is to do. (Pauses, overlaps, lack of repair.)
