How good of a BERT can one get in ONE DAY on ONE GPU?
With all the recent studies about scaling compute up, this paper takes a refreshing turn and does a deep dive into scaling down compute.
It's well written, stock full of insights. Here is my summary and my opinions.
With the advent of #ChatGPT, everyone is talking about large language models. But how do they work? Initially, such models were trained to complete sentences.
But they exhibit exciting capabilities that can be invoked by feeding them "prompts."
Read our Prompt Engineering Guide for a quick overview of the current state of this field.

Scikit-learn 1.2 is out: https://github.com/scikit-learn/scikit-learn/releases/tag/1.2.0
Was an eventful December & I totally missed the new release of my favorite #machinelearning library!
My personal highlights are around the HistGradientBoostingClassifier (if you haven't used it yet, it's a LightGBM impl that works really well)
It now supports
1. interaction constraints (in trees, features that appear along a particular path are considered as "interacting")
2. class weights
3. feature names for categorical features
😮 Exciting times:
Surprised to see a #ChatGPT style AI model integrated with Web search so soon!
The new #YouChat provides links to sources, but just like other AI models also makes many mistakes.
Will be interesting to see how people use it.
I asked #chatGPT for 4 visual descriptions involving technology from the book 'Snowcrash' (so insane that you can now ask for stuff like that!?). I then copy-pasted them into Midjourney. Here are some results.
Hey, I am just signed up a few days ago and want to introduce myself.
I am a #machinelearning researcher focusing on deep neural nets. My passion is sharing all kinds of stuff about machine learning & open source. (Some of you may know me from my books “Python Machine Learning” and “Machine Learning with PyTorch and Scikit-Learn”.)
I love to teach others, and am currently working as Lead AI Educator at Lightning AI, and also an Assistant Prof of Statistics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
We've been working on new https://prodi.gy workflows that let you use the OpenAI API to kickstart your annotations, via zero- or few-shot learning. We've just published the first recipe, for NER annotation 🎉 https://github.com/explosion/prodigy-openai-recipes
Here's what, why and how. 🧵
Let's say you want to do some 'traditional' NLP thing, like extracting information from text. The information you want to extract isn't on the public web — it's in this pile of documents you have sitting in front of you.

great post about chatgpt, reviewing everything known about how its emergent abilities might have come about https://yaofu.notion.site/How-does-GPT-Obtain-its-Ability-Tracing-Emergent-Abilities-of-Language-Models-to-their-Sources-b9a57ac0fcf74f30a1ab9e3e36fa1dc1

This article sheds light on the question of why machine learning products mostly do not get into production even though they are enjoying an ongoing boom. Additionally, it shows how MLOps can help to tackle these challenges in the machine learning life cycle.

Controversial #machinelearning suggestions by Yann LeCun at #NeurIPS2022 Self-Supervised Learning workshop!
(1) abandoning generative AI architectures
(in favour of joint embedding ones)
(2) abandoning probabilistic models
(in favour of energy-based models)
(3) abandoning contrastive methods
(in favour of regularized methods)
(3) abandoning RL where possible
(in favour of model-predictive control)
Monolith (from ByteDance, creator of TikTok) is an interesting system for online training that addresses two problems faced by modern recommenders: (1) Concept Drift - underlying distribution of the training data is non-stationary; ( 2) Features used by models are mostly sparse, categorical and dynamically changing. #recsys #MachineLearning
Like @timfinin I tried ChatGPT on last semester's final exam for my lecture "Information Service Engineering", with questions/tasks on Knowledge Graphs, basic NLP, and basic ML. It performed surprisingly well (for SPARQL it achieved 11 out of 12 points). Even for more complex questions like performing an evaluation or constructing an FSA, it performed not flawlessly, but not so bad. Overall, ChatGPT would have passed. Congratulations!
Here is a twitter thread on ways discovered to "jailbreak" #ChatGPT
1. Pretend to be evil
2. Remind it that it isn't supposed to disagree
3. Wrap it in code
4. Tell GPT to be in opposite mode
5. Convince GPT it is playing an earthlike game
6. Convince it to give examples of what LLMs shouldn't do
We're starting a community slack for anybody interested in Neurosymbolic AI. (drivers include organizers of the annual workshop on the topic, and EiCs and EB members of the journal Neurosymbolic Artificial Intelligence that we're currently starting.
If you'd like to be on the slack, let me know (or anybody else who's already on it). You'll get an invite to your email then.
