7:00 – 9:00 ASRC GEOS/AIMES
- Worked on the slides a bit
- Adding changes to the JASSS paper
- Waiting for meeting
- Meeting went well, I think? Funding appears to be solid, and I’m now a “Futurist”
- Meeting with Shimei’s group. Fatima might be interested in ML summer work
- Meeting with Aaron. Fleshed out the Sanhedrin-17a concept
7:00 – 8:00 ASRC NASA GEOS-R
- More Dissertation
- Break out the network slides to “island” (initial state), “star” (radio) “cyclic star” (talk radio), “dense” social media
- 7:30 Waikato meeting.
- Walked through today’s version, which is looking very nice
- Went over tasking spreadsheets
7:00 – 1:30 ASRC PhD 1:30 – 6:00 NASA AIMES
- Downloaded an amoeba eating a bacteria. Need to edit
- Fixed some bugs in the analytic code and downloaded some images and text. There is banding in the space name embeddings, which is pretty interesting
- Worked on the paper. I think I have an entry point now. It seems to be flowing nicely
- Dungeons & Dragons Single Volume Edition By Gary Gygax & Dave Arneson
- GOES-R AI Kickoff meeting
- More work on slides. Incorporated Wayne’s comments (I think?). Also got the video edited
7:00 – 10:00 ASRC PhD. Fun, long day.
- Understanding BERT Transformer: Attention isn’t all you need
- Word Vectors and NLP Modeling from BoW to BERT
- Since the advent of word2vec, neural word embeddings have become a go to method for encapsulating distributional semantics in text applications. This series will review the strengths and weaknesses of using pre-trained word embeddings and demonstrate how to incorporate more complex semantic representation schemes such as Semantic Role Labeling, Abstract Meaning Representation and Semantic Dependency Parsing into your applications.
- Artificial Intelligence and Global Security Initiative Research Agenda
- The Center for a New American Security’s Artificial Intelligence and Global Security Initiative explores these and other issues surrounding the AI revolution. Current AI technology is powerful, but also has a number of vulnerabilities, including susceptibility to spoofing (false data) and control problems. An arms race in AI where nations and other actors rush to use this technology for their advantage without any concern for safety would be harmful to everyone. It is vitally important for the technology and policy communities to come together to better understand the implications of the AI revolution for global security and how best to navigate the challenges ahead.
- One more pass through Antonio’s paper this evening – done
- Working on getting the Slack chats into the database. It turns out that there can be threaded discussions within channels: `thread_ts`, `reply_count`, `reply_users_count`, `latest_reply`, `reply_users`, `replies` are the variables. It’s not critical now, but it would be nice to read these in as well.
- Added encoding=”utf8″ to the read statements
- We are over 10,000 rows!
- And it looks like the Google Keras team is going to run the dungeon
- Starting on SequenceAnalyzer. Not bat progress for a day
- Meeting with Wayne
“Slaying Monsters for Science”
A few from that infamous conference…
and the role of immersive play in rethinking modern religious expression….
Travelling to the Tensorflow developer’s conference
Started on my iConf talk
