I'm happy to announce a new project, called Netzschleuder: networks.skewed.de

This is a network data catalogue and repository. It currently contains 257 datasets totaling 3,916 individual networks (94,956 if you include a big @openstreetmap@twitter.com trove).

Oh no, the “ground truth” is 30% garbage...

Amazing poster from a TACL paper at today: "Quality at a Glance: An Audit of Web-Crawled Multilingual Datasets" tl;dr LOOK AT YOUR DATA! Super embarrassing what they found & what it means for validity of supposedly multilingual work.

If the 150th ranked tennis player beats the 3rd, should the rankings be updated? We're happy to revise rankings but rarely question our "model" – how likely is this outcome if these rankings were correct?

But how often have they correctly predicted that there would be no recession?

Economists have predicted 5 out of the last 153 recessions (IMF research)

Don't we realize that research in AI has become highly inductive (why so many papers/instances)... the same methodology as Chinese medicine for thousands of years (why so many recipes). What happens to the glorious deductive thinking? Pillar to Science/Math since Socrates...

Great piece from @GaryMarcus@twitter.com on how big brute force ML models essentially disprove the “blank slate” hypothesis of human cognition, and are orthogonal to proper scientific progress.

Finishes with Chomsky brilliantly dissing GPT-3, as one would expect.

RT @DorotheaBaur@twitter.com

Essentially blank slate systems like should motivate us to explore "their very antithesis, which would be Kantian systems that start with representations of space and time and causality, and at least some kernels of universal grammar". 💯 @GaryMarcus@twitter.com garymarcus.substack.com/p/noam

God forbid we require more than a picture of cow in a tuxedo to be convinced that a big over-parametrized model has achieved “understanding”.

RT @giffmana@twitter.com

And I bet even this will not be enough to kill the "dumb scaling won't make the model understand cow on beach! We need XYZ" argument forever.
