sleepinyourhat Not really. It's important that we build a clear consensus on what kind of progress we are and aren't making in NLP. That means avoiding hype, but it also means acknowledging the progress that we do make.

sleepinyourhat I even put together a silly inspired rule of thumb: pic.twitter.com/UBeEWTt1mH

via Twitter Web App (retweeted on 3:46 PM, Dec 2nd, 2021 via Twitter Web App)

sleepinyourhat The argument in this paper is simple: The stakes are getting higher for what we do. We should be careful about the claims we make. Putting a sloppy or unjustified claim in a paper is a problem whether that claim is about what we can do or what we can't.

via Twitter Web App (retweeted on 3:46 PM, Dec 2nd, 2021 via Twitter Web App)

sleepinyourhat That kind of claim masks the huge difference between the small trained-from-scratch LSTMs of 2017 and newer models like GPT-3 or FLAN that barely use labeled training data at all. Newer systems are far less brittle, and they're not brittle in the same ways.

sleepinyourhat I see a lot of authors in NLP lately who seem to be going far out of their way to write that current systems don't really work well.

via Twitter Web App (retweeted on 3:45 PM, Dec 2nd, 2021 via Twitter Web App)

sleepinyourhat This often means saying that today's models don't work but only citing evidence for much older models. Or setting up adversarial evaluations that any system would fail, no matter how good it is. This paper goes through a bunch of examples of what this looks like.

via Twitter Web App (retweeted on 3:45 PM, Dec 2nd, 2021 via Twitter Web App)

sleepinyourhat I don't think that we're close to any of that. I don't know how we'd get there. But if you draw out our current rate of progress for fifteen or twenty-five or fifty years, this kind of really transformative impact really does seem possible.

tallinzen Seems silly to have work-life balance sessions at conferences while at the same time sending the very explicit message that it's absolutely critical people drop everything to review papers in a short time frame just so authors can have the conference's stamp of approval.
