GPT Agents:

  • Prompt Programming for Large Language Models: Beyond the Few-Shot Paradigm
    • Prevailing methods for mapping large generative language models to supervised tasks may fail to sufficiently probe models’ novel capabilities. Using GPT-3 as a case study, we show that 0-shot prompts can significantly outperform few-shot prompts. We suggest that the function of few-shot examples in these cases is better described as locating an already learned task rather than meta-learning. This analysis motivates rethinking the role of prompts in controlling and evaluating powerful language models. In this work, we discuss methods of prompt programming, emphasizing the usefulness of considering prompts through the lens of natural language. We explore techniques for exploiting the capacity of narratives and cultural anchors to encode nuanced intentions and techniques for encouraging deconstruction of a problem into components before producing a verdict. Informed by this more encompassing theory of prompt programming, we also introduce the idea of a metaprompt that seeds the model to generate its own natural language prompts for a range of tasks. Finally, we discuss how these more general methods of interacting with language models can be incorporated into existing and future benchmarks and practical applications.
  • Language models are 0-shot interpreters
    • In this post, I present evidence that the efficacy of 0-shot prompts for GPT-3 has been underestimated, and that more powerful models are more effective at deriving information from 0-shot prompts, while less powerful models have greater need for examples on equivalent tasks. From this evidence, I extrapolate three principal claims:
      • Few-shot prompts are not always an efficient or necessary means of task specification for GPT-3.
      • For some tasks, such as translation between well-known languages, GPT-3 is a 0-shot interpreter – a short task description or signifier suffices to invoke its full capabilities.
      • 0-shot performance scales with model size more drastically than few-shot performance, suggesting that 0-shot task specification will become a more important prompting strategy as language models increase in capability.
  • Started training the January 2020 model
  • It looks like sim got the new format model trained? It’s up through Feb 21. Need to adjust the query code and parser and do some runs for the queries we discussed last night as well as month/year prompts. And combos, e.g. October 2020 USA [[COVID-19 happened because

  • Reading “Purakau: Maori Myths Retold by Maori Writers”. Some interesting perspectives on group problem solving and education, particularly in the story ‘Rata’, by Hemi Kelly:
    • ‘“Sail towards the rising sun,” she instructed him, “there you will find Pariroa, the home of Matuku.” After saying this, she handed Rata an old toki, “You will need this to fashion your waka.”’
    • “You didn’t recite the correct karakia – or in fact any karakia. Instead you carelessly chopped down your ancestor, a child of Tāne, for your own gain without offering anything in return.”
    • ‘It’s the same with our rongoā. Anybody can go and pick a leaf and eat it but it’s the process we follow that makes it right. It’s the time we go, the area we visit and the careful selection. The most important thing, though, is our acknowledgement of Tāne through karakia, as it’s the karakia that gives the rongoā its healing properties that make us better.’

  • Note that the Judaism and Christianity lists support each other. This could look a lot like the original mapping Java mapping code?
  • It does not know about the pandemic (prompt is bold): “coronavirus is a member of the Coronaviridae family, which includes animals and birds as known hosts. The virus is a single-stranded, positive-sense RNA virus with a genome of approximately 30 kb. The genome is organized into three segments: S, M, and L.

    • We’re going to try for the social sensing workshop:
      • The social sensing workshop (started in 2015) is a multidisciplinary meeting place that brings together social scientists and computer scientists, interested in social media analysis, around research that interprets social media as measurement instruments. Social media democratized information production offering an unprecedented view into human habits, customs, culture, stances, and indeed descriptions of physical events that transpire in the world. They also give unprecedented opportunities to spread misinformation, influence opinion, distract from the truth, or advance specific agendas, hidden or overt. The potential of social media to influence populations has brought about an interest in understanding information operations; namely, coordinated efforts on social media meant to alter people’s opinions, emotions, or understanding of events. What are scientific foundations for modeling this new communication, measurement, and influence channel? How to utilize information media signals to better understand social systems, communities, and each other? How to identify and mitigate misuse of this medium? What specifically can one measure or influence, what underlying theoretical framework allows one to do so, and what applications are enabled by the endeavor?  Since measurement and influence operations are well-studied in many physical domains, what can one learn from the physical domain (e.g., from the signal processing literature) to enable novel social media analysis methods? This scope brings about new interdisciplinary research challenges and opportunities at the intersection of communication and sensing, social network analysis, information theory, data mining, natural language processing, artificial intelligence, and social sciences.

From Interactions of the ACM: The Humboldt Cup: On narrative, taxonomies, and colonial violence:

  • Historian of science Londa Schiebinger [6] offers a compelling account of how the creation of racial and gender hierarchies has permeated the construction of biology and medicine as fields of knowledge. Engaging with the taxonomical system devised by Swedish naturalist Carl von Linnaeus, she points out that traits such as the breasts or the skull were subjected to processes of racialization and sexualization in attempts to produce arguments that would justify the subjugation of femininity and of all racialized peoples. Schiebinger argues that scientists were, in fact, fundamental actors in the colonizing process: In describing, classifying, taxonomizing, and representing this so-called new world, European powers sought to claim ownership over lands, peoples, flora, and fauna. Classifying entire groups of animals based on the presence of breasts was a choice; other characteristics could have been highlighted, such as the presence of hair [6]. White patriarchal domination was thus asserted through notebooks, measuring tools, pens, and paintbrushes just as much as it was through firearms.

Had a nice chat with Antonio about an introduction for the special issue

Phil 2.17.21

Today we’re excited to release a big update to the Galaxy visualization, an interactive UMAP plot of graph embeddings of books and articles assigned in the Open Syllabus corpus! (This is using the new v2.5 release of the underlying dataset, which also comes out today.) The Galaxy is an attempt to give a 10,000-meter view of the “co-assignment” patterns in the OS data – basically, which books and articles are assigned together in the same courses. By training node embeddings on the citation graph formed from (syllabus, book/article) edges, we can get really high-quality representations of books and articles that capture the ways in which professional instructors use them in the classroom – the types of courses they’re assigned in, the other books they’re paired with, etc.

#to get week number (in range 0-53 ) from date

select count(*) as COUNT, extract(WEEK from  created_at) as WEEK from twitter_root where text like “%chinavirus%” group by extract(WEEK from  created_at) order by extract(WEEK from  created_at);

#to drill down from month to week and week to day for March and April since they have significantly larger volume of data

select count(*) as COUNT, date(created_at) as DATE from twitter_root  where text like “%chinavirus%” and (month(created_at) = 3 or month(created_at) = 4) and year(created_at) = 2020 group by date(created_at) order by date(created_at);

Figured out how to do this:

create or replace  view long_text_view as
select tr.row_id, tr.created_at,
case when extended_tweet_row_id <> 0 then et.full_text else tr.text end as long_text
from twitter_root tr
left join extended_tweet et on tr.extended_tweet_row_id = et.row_id;

This is kind of cool. The chinavirus is most peaky but low volume. The sars-cov-2 is low volume but flatter, and the more common terms are pretty similar with gentler peaks and slower falloff. I want to know what that dip isaround week nine, and the peak at week 5 in the chinavirus plot.

  • 3:30 Meeting. Nice progress. This is pretty cool:
Counts by month for “chinavirus”
Counts by month for “coronavirus”
Counts by month for “sars-cov-2”

These haven’t been normalized, but there seems to be a big spike for chinavirus early in the pandemic, which is what I’d expect for stampede-like behavior. Coronavirus has more mentions, and it’s also more spread out and slowly starts to die out as it is incorporated into daily life and other things grab our attention. Sars-Cov-2 follows a different pattern of periodic relative higher and lower interest but doesn’t seem to change that much which is what I would expect for explorer behavior.

  • 11:00 Meeting with Vadim. I’d like to work out the best way to adjust the reaction wheel efficiency. Currently it’s done by adjusting angular velocity in AngleController but I think that the efficiency should be adjusted in the sim code. Also, we need to have the “reset” code that can move the vehicle back to the start position without using physics.

  • A Comprehensive Survey of Graph Embedding: Problems, Techniques and Applications
  • A graph is hypothetical structure that does not exist in the real world. Any real world data representation may be reduced to a graph, but it is NOT a graph. A network topology can be first reduced to a graph and then algorithms like Dijkstra’s and Kruskal’s can be applied to it for various purposes like routing. All real world situations are subsets of graph problems (of that domain). Most problems of networking, especially those concerning routing reduce to a graph based problem. You will never find a graph in real world scenario. But you will find its subsets or derivatives in practical applications.

Nyströmformer: A Nyström-Based Algorithm for Approximating Self-Attention

  • Transformers have emerged as a powerful tool for a broad range of natural language processing tasks. A key component that drives the impressive performance of Transformers is the self-attention mechanism that encodes the influence or dependence of other tokens on each specific token. While beneficial, the quadratic complexity of self-attention on the input sequence length has limited its application to longer sequences — a topic being actively studied in the community. To address this limitation, we propose Nyströmformer — a model that exhibits favorable scalability as a function of sequence length. Our idea is based on adapting the Nyström method to approximate standard self-attention with O(n) complexity. The scalability of Nyströmformer enables application to longer sequences with thousands of tokens. We perform evaluations on multiple downstream tasks on the GLUE benchmark and IMDB reviews with standard sequence length, and find that our Nyströmformer performs comparably, or in a few cases, even slightly better, than standard Transformer. Our code is at this https URL.

The desire for dominance displays from The Republican Party Is Radicalizing Against Democracy

  • As for the party’s base, what policy issues are MAGA rally-goers wound up about? Not the deficit or taxes, and not the ACA. In the past, those issues gave expression to their underlying grievances, but no longer. After the election, one GOP polling firm asked Republicans about their biggest concerns for a post-Trump Republican Party. Forty-four percent wanted a party that would “fight like Donald Trump,” while only 19 percent worried that a post-Trump GOP would “abandon Donald Trump’s policies.”

  • Verified that the rotations are working right in the testbed:
  • Aiming a projectile at a moving target
    • Without gravity, bullets travel in a straight line at constant velocity. To determine where to shoot, imagine shooting an infinite number of bullets simultaneously in all directions, forming an expanding sphere of death. While the sphere is expanding, the target is moving along a straight line (or standing still). If we can determine the instant at which this expanding sphere touches the moving target, we know where to aim: at the target’s position when it gets hit by the expanding sphere of death.
    • Hooray!
