Amid a tense meeting with protesters, Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler tear-gassed by federal agents

GPT-2 Agents

  • Good back-and-forth with Antonio about venues
  • It struck me that statistical tests about fair dice might give me a way of comparing the two populations. Pieces are roughly equivalent to dice sides. Looking at this post on the RPG Stackexchange. That led me to Pearson’s Chi-square test (which rang a bell as the sort of test I might need).
  • Success! Here’s the code:
    from scipy.stats import chisquare, chi2_contingency
    from scipy.stats.stats import pearsonr
    import pandas as pd
    import numpy as np
    
    gpt = [51394,
           25962,
           19242,
           23334,
           15928,
           19953]
    
    twic = [49386,
            31507,
            28263,
            31493,
            22818,
            23608]
    
    z, p = chisquare(f_obs=gpt,f_exp=twic)
    print("z = {}, p = {}".format(z, p))
    
    ar = np.array([gpt, twic])
    print("\n",ar)
    
    df = pd.DataFrame(ar, columns=['pawns', 'rooks', 'bishops', 'knights', 'queen', 'king'], index=['gpt-2', 'twic'])
    print("\n", df)
    
    z,p,dof,expected=chi2_contingency(df, correction=False)
    print("\nNo correction: z = {}, p = {}, DOF = {}, expected = {}".format(z, p, dof, expected))
    
    z,p,dof,expected=chi2_contingency(df, correction=True)
    print("\nCorrected: z = {}, p = {}, DOF = {}, expected = {}".format(z, p, dof, expected))
    
    cor = pearsonr(gpt, twic)
    print("\nCorrelation = {}".format(cor))

  • It might be time to start writing this up!

GOES

  • Found vehicle orientation mnemonics: GNC_AD_STA_FUSED_QRS#

2020-07-23

  • 11:00 Meeting with Erik and Vadim about schedules. Erik will send an update. The meeting went well. Vadim’s going to exercise the model through a set of GOTO ANGLE 90 / GOTO ANGLE 0 for each of the rwheels, and we’ll see how they map to the primary axis of the GOES

City Arts & Lectures: Privacy and Technology

  • This week, a conversation about privacy, ethics, and organizing in the world of technology.Who benefits from the lack of diversity in the tech industry? Does artificial intelligence reflect the biases of those who create it? How can we push for regulation and transparency?  These are some of the questions discussed by our guests, Meredith Whittaker, co-founder of AI Now at NYU and the founder of Google’s Open Research Institute; and Kade Crockford, Director of the ACLU Massachusetts’ Technology and Liberty Program. They appeared at the Sydney Goldstein Theater in San Francisco on June 7, 2019.

7:00 – 8:00 ASRC GOES

  • Printed out some business cards for JuryRoom
  • Antonio has submitted the manuscript – created a TAAS account and verified that its there
  • Dissertation
    • Finished 0.5 pass at chapter 1!
  • Goddard today
    • See if I can get a permanent card? Done!
    • More control system work
  • Meeting with Wayne
    • Send the as-delivered TAAS paper and cover letter. Done
    • Work on getting the ML/Weapons paper reformatted tomorrow
    • Send chapter one of the dissertation
    • I’ll then start sending the chapters as I “complete” them, and we’ll see how it’s going. If the dissertation seems to be coming together well, then we might switch strategies to a from a content-centric to a coherence-centric approach.

7:00 –  6:00 ASRC

  • Updated ADP Job performance
  • Submitted JASSS Paper
  • Discovered the ComSES Network. It’s a repository for models, a job board, and a schedule with deadlines for ABM-related conferences and workshops!
  • First Tymora run with the map today!
    • It went well, I think. My main takeaway is that the place terms are working fine, but the space terms may need more context. It may be that an excerpt from the story that reflects the most common terms may be better than the terms in isolation.
    • The players stayed away from the stairs, and actually turned them to their advantage, using them as a defensive position.
    • The players went through the orb room very fast, and seemed to base their thinking on aspects of the map.
    • The crypticness of the map seems to help the games aspects. The terms are interpretable, and the ambiguity supports the agency of the players
