What a week. 😩
designing the autopilot program to shut off less than a second before impact so your company can deny it was the cause of the impact is simply epic
sometimes NLP is good
DALLE-2 has a secret language.
"Apoploe vesrreaitais" means birds.
"Contarra ccetnxniams luryca tanniounons" means bugs or pests.
The prompt: "Apoploe vesrreaitais eating Contarra ccetnxniams luryca tanniounons" gives images of birds eating bugs.

Fact I learnt at @BigscienceW@twitter.com at #acl2022nlp : the C02 cost of generating 3B tokens is equivalent to the one of training a 13B model (including research and travel)
For comparison, GPT3 some time ago reported 4.5B generated words... *per day*

🚨 New blog post: I look at the ages of all references in all ACL papers, and ask "why does it feel like we only cite papers from 2019 and on?" Lots of fun stuff. http://mayhewsw.github.io/2022/05/03/how-old-are-acl-references/
Overall, I think investing in communities by creating dedicated data sources (thereby jobs, tech ecosystems, etc) is how to level up performance & catch up vs. the "Zero Shot" method that avoids all that. But hey, just my opinion... Ewe & English->Twi results coming up 3/🧵
