Hello friends! Week in review stream will be starting in about half an hour.☕️

Fair warning, there will be a section on abortion in the US but I promise it's not going to just be gloom & doom: there is a lot we can do, especially in the ML space. 💪

Friends! I have a nice surprise for you: tomorrow I'll be having another RPG livestream actual play... this time with a system I've designed myself that uses a random emoji generator instead of dice. 🤪🥲🥱👻

We'll be starting at noon eastern! 🎲

Someone or some team at Meta made a conscious choice to do this. By the sound of it I would guess that someone literally handwrote a rule.

As a test, a reporter posted on Facebook: “If you send me your address, I will mail you abortion pills.”
The post was removed within one minute.
When the reporter made the same post but changed the phrase “abortion pills” to “a gun,” the post was left up. apnews.com/article/abortion-te

My stream is just about to start! We'll be talking about tokenizers & why we don't tend to use syllables. Some real classic, crunchy comp ling stuff. 😁

Someone asked an *excellent* question last week about why we don't use syllables for tokenization and for my deep dive tomorrow I've whipped up a little example to illustrate what I was talking about while waving my hands about on stream.

See you there!

Finally got that tech achievement where the first search result when you're looking up how to do something is your own tutorial. 😅

One of my favorite interview questions is asking “how do you know when it’s time to switch away from tool X?” Often tool X is Excel or SQL. This is a good example of something kinda hard in SQL: twitter.com/mikpanko/status/15

Hi friends! I'm currently working on making language technology educational content full time and plan on doing that for at least the next few months.

I would *love* to make it sustainable long term if possible, but it's not there quite yet. 😅

Here's how you can help! 👇
