"You are charged on an indictment containing 11 counts Which alleges that you are everything from a terrorist to a rapist What do you say about that I'm none of those have never been and will never be whether they think so or not And also the Serbian president slobodan milosevic was indicted for war crimes in Kosovo in the late 90s and as you're going to hear in this clip he rejected the entire process I consider distributional force tribunal and indictments force indictments it is illegal being not appointed by UN assembly So I have no need to appoint console to illegal order How difficult do you think it would be To hear Vladimir Putin's voice in a similar way I mean what would have to happen to get the Russian president Into a tribunal like this While we would need first indictments right And then to get Putin and custody that assumes that he even leaves Russia and is on the territory of a nation that is willing to extradite him Let's say to The Hague and so that's a huge huge challenge and thinking about the International Criminal Court which is the standing tribunal that has jurisdiction over war crimes crimes against humanity and genocide in which has initiated investigations for abuses in Ukraine It can not try people in absentia so you really need people in custody But the IC has not been does not have a good track record when it comes to holding accountable sitting heads of state People either don't want to turn them over They do the leaders themselves do not want to cooperate It's really hard to hold heads of state accountable and even more so when we think about Russia being such a powerful nation on the world stage and that other countries are reluctant to intervene militarily because of the military and human costs that would be that this would necessarily create beyond those that are already being lost currently Is director of the international justice lab at William and Mary Helping us better understand.

"Was around the time, like maybe 6 or 7 months after I started investigating his life a bit more. I was training for a half marathon at the time, and so I had gone for a run that morning and I was in the bathroom afterwards showering. I was listening to REM at the end of the world and it just hit me like I forgive my dad for doing this. I'm okay with him having done this. And I hadn't been thinking about him that day I hadn't been thinking about him while I was running. It just kind of came in out of nowhere and maybe it was the lyrics to that song, just kind of that sense of everything's falling apart. All good, I feel fine.

"And he was so, you know, it's that face that people make when you say, you know, my dad's dead, or, you know, I've always believed my dad to be dead, but he may have faked his death. I am uncomfortable about this, and I'm not even you. The manager feels bad for Olivia. And so he offers her a free dinner on the house. Like, no, no, I don't. I don't want a consolation pizza. Olivia came all the way to Finland to find answers, and she got them. They just weren't the answer she wanted. Right? And I was relieved, honestly about that because I was very afraid of my dad actually being there, I think. Because again, what do you say? And like what happens if I actually figured this out and in the buildup to going on that trip I had read a lot of books about faking one's own death, there was one that came out around that time by someone who went through the whole process of getting herself declared legally dead just to see what it took to get there. And you know, we don't have accurate statistics about how many people fake their own deaths because the ones who get away with it get away with it. If I actually am breaking the story for myself, what then does he have to start a new life all over again? Olivia leaves the restaurant and decides to visit a sauna. It's at the very tip of Helsinki. The whole thing with Sonos that you go from hot to cold, and I was sitting in the heat box and I just started talking to my dad and my head kind of in the way of what was I going to say to him? But the conversation that I was having with him was like, you know, him saying to me, well, what did you expect? You can't expect the finishing line. Dad pun. And you know, I just kind of went from that into just sort of having this conversation with him that maybe it was the one I wanted to have maybe it wasn't the one I wanted to actually have, but it was just kind of me being honest with him in that moment. And I was like in there for a while because I was really starting to feel woozy. And I walked out to the gulf of Finland and some places have just pools to go into, but this being on the water, you just jump into a body of water. And it was dark at that point. It was foggy. I also didn't have my glasses on. They were in my locker and I can't see a thing without them. And I just felt so lost in this weird wilderness of darkness and fog and this really murky water. I was, I don't know if it was more the cold of the water that was disturbing to me or the idea that because I'm like diving into a natural body of water that's connected to the ocean. There might be princess bride that shrieking eels in really messed me up around eels for a very long time. And I kind of realized I am probably never going to know for sure whether my father is alive or dead. They would either have to be a body found or he would have to come out of the woodwork and actually present himself at my doorstep. I have come to accept that closure is a bit of a fallacy, especially around death. We've sort of co opted this the.

"Confirm a couple questions for us? Like can we just set up a time to talk on the phone? Maybe the management isn't responding because they're a restaurant busy doing restaurant things, but Olivia can't shake the feeling that there's something more to this. The possibility that her father might be alive and well and running a restaurant across the Atlantic Ocean becomes the thing that keeps her up at night. She can feel that there are answers out there. And she wants them. My mind just kind of went to all of these places until I finally just bought a ticket to go to Helsinki. When we get back, we're going to Finland. Olivia is on her way to Helsinki, Finland, where there's a Sicilian restaurant owned by a man who might be her dad. A man she first thought had abandoned her, then learned he had died by suicide, and then learned that he might not be dead and had actually faked his own death, it's a lot for Olivia to process. So she boards the plane, and then I realized it was world mental health day because an article I had written about understanding my father's suicide had been published that day. And I was like getting texts on my phone from friends saying, oh my God, this is such a great piece. And I was like, what? And then I checked it, and I said, oh, oh. It's that day. Great. The synchronicity is just, it's just everywhere. And it kind of in that very silly way made me feel like maybe this is worth something and maybe this is going to lead to something. Olivia arrives in the evening and she plans to visit the restaurant first thing the next day. I used to work in restaurants, so I know you do not go in during the lunch rush. And you do not go in during the dinner rush. So I was like, if I'm doing this, I'm doing it right. And I walk in, I go up to the bar. I brought some of my old time out in New York business cards with me just to again kind of just trying to go in without spooking anyone. You know, it's like when you're walking in the Woods and you try to not disturb the deer. And I went up to the bar, I ordered a Coke and I said, is there a manager I can speak to? I work with time out, see, here's my card. We're updating the Helsinki guide, and I just wanted to ask a few questions about the history of the restaurant and I've done those types of articles about restaurants. And it's one thing when you go into a historic restaurant that's been open for 200 years or you go into a place that everyone is talking about. But this was a very sad cruise ship Italian buffet restaurant where it all just felt so clammy. And the bartender was like, oh, yeah, there's not a manager here right now, but if you want to ask some questions about the restaurant, there's a shift manager who comes on at 5. And this is like 11 o'clock in the morning. This is unhelpful. And the tinfoil hat part of Olivia worries that she's getting the run around. She kills time by visiting local shops and sampling different makeup ballads and tools to give herself a little makeover because when she comes face to face with her dad, she wants to look like the strong woman she's become in his absence. She returns to the restaurant at 5 p.m. sharp. And this time the manager is there. The man who could be her dad. He was this very tall, young finished guy with like super blond hair, super blue eyes, just arms of tattoos, and maybe about my age. And he was like, oh, I'm the shift manager. And I was like, awesome. You are not my dad. I said to the guy, I said to the manager, okay, I'm curious about the origin story of this place. You know, you mentioned that there is a man named Albert. And he looked at me and he said, I have to tell you that whole thing is made up. And I was like, what? What? And he said, oh, it's just where a hotel restaurant. We've been here for decades, but under different names. And when they rebranded this place as an Italian tavern type of deal, a marketing company came up with this whole backstory for us to make it seem like the family establishment. Wow. And I was like, okay, but wow. Wait a second. Where did you come up with this name? And we were on a street called Albert coup, which was named, I think, for famous Finn whose name was Albert. And I was like, okay, but what about you? Because that is not a common last name. And he's looking at me. And he's like, is your last name gia that he? And I was like, yes. Yes, it is. And he's like, oh, so you're staying at the hotel. And I was like, no. And he was like, I don't know why they chose that name. I think they just kind of chose one randomly online. And he genuinely seemed he was not part of this like 25 year old sinister cabal. I think he just was like telling me the truth or what he understood to be the truth. You know, I finally kind of dropped the facade with him because I had a picture of my dad on my phone and I was like, look, this guy is probably 25 years older now, so you have to imagine wrinkles, gray hairs, all that stuff. Does anyone work here who looks like this man? And he's looking at me now, like, wait, what just happened? Because I thought you were a travel writer. And I kind of just told him the whole thing, but I was also trying to be really together. So I'm like, oh, well, you know, it's just your average story, my dad disappeared 25 years ago. He may have died, he may not have, and then I just found someone using his name here. So I figured I would just fly over and see what's going on, you know? Totally normal, though, totally normal. This is not weird at all, but can you just tell me, like, does this guy work here? Because if so.

"Of this was explained to me. She knew that he had been married at least once before, but I was talking with his sister last year. And she mentioned his ex-wife. And I said, oh, so and so, and she was like, no, this name, and I was like, wait, what? And then I was doing some, you know, Internet sleuthing. And I found another marriage license that has his social security number on it. So I was like, well, we found another one. By now, Olivia is a working journalist and a champ at online investigations. So she keeps digging. There are a few bits of him on the Internet where like, you know, you can find an article of him and his high school graduating class and that's when I just started looking up other people and more people were on Facebook in 2016. And started looking them up and saying, I think you went to school with my father, he died when I was 7. I'd like to know more about him. If you remember anything, can we talk? And a bunch of people got back to me and said, algae that I would never have abandoned his daughter. He was so in love with being your dad. I don't think he died. You know, and I remember asking my mom about it, I think, a few years before, if it's possible that he could have faked his own death. And she said he wasn't that smart. Way to get that get that dig in. Get it in. Tell me your divorce was acrimonious without telling me your divorce was acrimonious. Remember, the only reason Olivia's dad was declared dead is because Olivia's mom had filed for that death in absentia designation, so that Olivia could receive social security benefits. At one point, Olivia is on her dad's sister, tells Olivia that her dad was really into the Internet in the early 90s. He was an early adopter, going digital way before the rest of us started unknowingly logging into creepy chat rooms. Al was even online dating in the early 90s, did not know that was possible. So Olivia starts to think, maybe her dad did have the tech savvy to make himself disappear. And then, on Father's Day in 2016, Olivia has a breakthrough. I found kind of through Facebook and Googling that there was a restaurant in Helsinki of all places. That was using the name Albert giovetti, kind of like the oh, Albert gia that he moved to Helsinki and 19, whatever, and he just fell in love with the place, and he created this wonderful tavern to give you a taste of old Sicily. Very godfather. That's right. Helsinki, the capital of Finland. The picture that they used for papa Albert looked like my father's dad and uncannily. And gia that he is not a common last name in Italian. You know, my dad worked in restaurants, it's believed by at least some people that he could have gotten out of town and if he over 20 years went from Boston to Canada who's to say he didn't get a new ID a new passport and resettle in Helsinki and who's to say because my mother said he's not smart enough to fake his own death that he wouldn't be dumb enough to use his own actual name in setting up this restaurant as his new life in Helsinki. And having that sort of Greek chorus of his high school friends telling me that I don't think he would have done that. I think he's out there somewhere who's to say that's not going to pan out. Not Olivia, when there are so many people suggesting her dad could still be alive. And not when a Finnish restaurant bears his name as well as a picture that looks an awful lot like Olivia's grandpa. For me as a writer and for me as someone who has done a lot of reported journalism, it feels like, oh, this story is coming together. You know, you could set some track hurdles in front of me, and I probably would have broken a record or two at that point, just with that amount of energy. And I write to the restaurant and I just said, hey, you're a geo very I'm a G of what's going on here. And nothing. That only made me more like aha. Your silence speaks volumes. I used to work at timeout New York and I still had friends who worked there. And I got one of them to send an email from their time out account saying, hey, we're just updating the Helsinki guidebook. Can you.

"You had a very traumatic childhood and I got so pissed at her. I was like, no, my chocolate was normal. What are you talking about? Like, don't you see me? I'm normal. I work for an opera company. It took me, I think another 5 years or so before I found the therapist that I have now been seeing for over a decade. During therapy, Olivia finally starts talking about her dad. Soon, she's identifying a trait that she and her father share. A pretty acute fear of failure. You know, I had a couple of small professional crises. I got fired from a job I liked for the first time. I had some other disagreement thing happened at another job. And I was feeling so panicked and anxious about it because again, if I get fired, if I have to quit a job because something got irreparably damaged, that means I am the fuck up. I am the deadbeat. And I first of all just felt a ton more empathy for my dad. Because I was mad at him for a long time and I know it's cliche to be mad at someone who dies by suicide, but that's just what I was feeling because it's like, dude, nut up and be a dad. It takes time and it takes therapy, but Olivia decides she wants to open that last moving box and learn more about her dad. She's not looking for an answer as to why he took his life. She understand mental illness and knows there's never just one reason. She just wants to know more about the man who used to make her life so fun. I just wanted to know what music did he listen to? I know what we listened to together, but I imagine he must have listened to other things or what did he do on the day of the first snow? Like, what was his favorite beer to drink? All of these things that I just wanted to know those little details because I had so few of them I knew that he had a tattoo of the roadrunner and a tattoo of woody woodpecker and he liked to joke that he had two birds in a pecker. And I knew that he had like aviator sunglasses and that he smoked Melbourne reds and all of his flannel shirts smelled like that. But I didn't know a lot more than that. And I was so creating not detail of information. I kind of stopped caring about what happened to him. I just wanted to know who he was and his cousin Al called me, and we just kind of talked for about three hours. And was just telling me a whole bunch of stuff, including this was the first time that I had heard. He was married before your mom, which I think we're now up to four possible marriages at my dad has had, and there might be more. Oh, and also, by the way, I don't think he's really dead. Not everyone thinks he's dead. Olivia.

"She's drawn to stories about suicide and it doesn't matter if they're fiction or biography or true crime. I was always a theater kid. And I in my freshman year of high school went to see one of those matinees. They did four students, but a professional theater company doing Othello by Shakespeare. And you know, it ends with a fellow killing desdemona. But after he kills desdemona, he kills himself, and I remember watching that scene and just feeling on fire. Every hair on the back of my neck was standing up. And I realized I really wanted to live in that moment of Othello's suicide. And a few weeks later, we watched the zephyr Ellie Romeo and Juliet in English class after reading the play and the same thing happened, like that same moment of just this full on chill and at the same time just feeling like I was going to spontaneously combust I was on a rent message board or an E group for rent heads in like 1999 and there was probably still fan fiction somewhere out there that I wrote and it was all like this character dying and that character killing themselves and I think the summer after learning my dad died. I watched dead poet society for the first time. And who boy? I just kept rewinding that last 20 minutes over and over and over. Like that scene in Deadpool, society where Robin Williams is sitting at Niels desk and he takes out the book that he had given him and he just breaks down like that is just. I could probably draw that scene from memory just for having watched it so many times. But it was making me feel something. And I wasn't able to articulate what that was at the time. But I was still getting something out of it. After graduation, Olivia says goodbye to the small town where she grew up and moved to New York City, where she studies playwriting at fordham university. Thanks to that social security she collected after her dad was declared dead in absentia. She's able to pay for less than a full year of tuition. And for Olivia, college is not the best four years of her life. It's a real challenge. I was thinking, oh, I can easily move to New York. I had lived in New York the summer before at a pre college program. I was like, I can do this. This will be so easy. I'm going to win the Pulitzer Prize before I'm 30. And I was the only one taken in that year for the playwriting program. And you know, I had an okay first year, but I think also I did start to just struggle with that sort of burnout of not only being very good at my academics for the most part, but also just not having an off switch, which I think the more I know about my dad now is something I got from him. It wasn't really until of 2003, 2004, and I was just kind of flailing with trying to make it all work with trying to go to class to get good grades to also hold down a job. I moved out of the dorms after freshman year into an apartment because I just wanted to be on my own. Yeah, I massively crashed and burned. I remember thinking, you know what? I don't want to do playwriting. I took a semester off from school entirely and just kind of worked tenth jobs in New York and the same sort of pattern that my dad lived out. And I could not deal with myself feeling like that. You know, thinking, as I was doing that, oh God, I'm going to be a deadbeat just like my dad. This is the end of everything. Olivia knows the loss of her dad when she was a kid is affecting her now as an adult. But she still isn't ready to fully deal with that reality, not yet. It's like that last box when you move of just I don't know what I threw in this box. I don't know if I need it. I don't feel like opening it. I don't feel like dealing with it. So I'm just going to put it in the closet until I realize.

"First day of high school and I got to my like little building for the freshmen. There was a circle of girls that I had been friendly with in middle school, not like best Friends, but you know, movie friends and I was kind of having a hard time getting into the group and I realized, oh, I'm not part of this group anymore. And one girl turned to me and said, smiling, like, I just decided I'm not going to speak to you this year. And I was like, okay. Well, cool. And I just kind of tried to keep in the circle because it's high school and it's just, you know, that survival instinct, I think, but there was a point of break in the conversation. And I just kind of blurted it out where I was like, I found out the summer that my dad killed himself. 7 years ago. And the same girl looks at me and she goes, oh, we already knew that. And I was like, wait, what? At the time, I thought she was just saying it because she was being mean. And now I think it's the same thing of just the things that we say to each other as teenage girls are just completely senseless and cruel. But there was kind of that middle point of like wait, I'm putting on the tinfoil hat and is this all a conspiracy theory did everybody know about this? It felt like those WB shows where that news drops and then it's like, okay, cut to commercial. And like everyone is on their seat, just waiting for the follow-up. And just basically after that was like, okay, we're just going to do commercials now. We're never going to get back to this like second act of Buffy.

"And that I'm still here. The Al on the other end of that email is not her dad. But it is her dad's cousin, who is conveniently and confusingly also named Al. Al as an Alfred, not Albert. Just before Olivia starts high school, she receives some unexpected male. One afternoon in August, I went out to get the mail. I was barefoot just walking on the grass and my mom was just coming home from grocery shopping or mowing the lawn. And I opened the mail and I see this Manila envelope addressed to me. And it was from my dad's mom, who I had seen a couple of times and I opened the envelope and all that was in it was a photocopy of my dad's suicide note and a copy of his will and his baby ring. There was no preamble, no warning that this envelope was going to be arriving in the mail. Olivia will later learn that her dad left the original suicide note on a yellow pad of legal paper in a days in outside of Boston, close to revere beach. His truck was later found at a nearby public transit station. And all of this happened ages ago just after Olivia's dad left for that new job in Atlanta. So Olivia doesn't just learn that her father is dead. She learns that he's been dead. For 7 years. I was standing there and I had that moment almost of that camera doing the zoom in while also panning out, so it creates this almost like vertigo effect where it just feels like everything is going whoosh onto me standing there on the grass in suburban Rhode Island. And I said to my mom, hey, come look at this, my dad killed himself. And she said, no, that's absurd. And it sucks that this is the moment that I got to be unquestionably right with my mother. But I shoved the packet into her hands and I was just like, look, and she read the note, and she kind of glanced at everything else. And she just said, huh. Okay, well, I guess now we know where he's been all this time, and she either went back to mowing the lawn or unloading the groceries and like, oh, okay, so this isn't the big movie climax moment where everything becomes different. It's just like, okay, so I guess I'll just go back into the house now. Olivia's mom doesn't seem upset when she hears this news from her daughter. And she doesn't seem surprised either. Because this news isn't really news at all. Her mom has known about her ex-husband suicide since right after it happened 7 years ago. His mother was first called because she was the person he was living with and her information was attached to his. But my mother learned shortly after that as well. So she was the one that did the leg work to have him declared dead an absentia so that I could start to get the social security benefits for him. Under Massachusetts law, a person can be presumed dead if nobody's heard from them for 5 straight years, provided there's been a quote diligent search and inquiry. Social security won't declare a missing person dead until 7 years have passed. It's called death in absentia. It's a declaration for people like Amelia Earhart, Jimmy Hoffa. Tom Hanks character in castaway. There's no hard proof that a person isn't living anymore. But the chances are good that their dad and the law says it's okay to give their beneficiaries their social security. Olivia is 14 years old when she learns that her dad, the fun guy she assumed just hadn't reached out for 7 years, despite that on fulfilled promise to go to Disney World. Is dead. He's been dead. This whole time. And Olivia isn't really sure what she's supposed to do next. I called his mother, I remember, which was long distance at the time. So I remember having to ask permission to call her and my mom was like, okay, I guess just don't stay on the phone too long. And she left no cover letter with it, 'cause she was the one that sent it to me. Her address was on the return address thing. And she just hadn't really put anything else in there and I called her. And she said, you know, I wanted you to have his baby ring. In the note, it said that he was tired of people telling him what to do, tired of trying to do things and failing and disappointing people and that he just wanted the pain to stop. And for the longest time I equated that with me, you know, in the absence of any other narrative from anyone else, I thought, okay, Atlanta was a code, like that was the sort of him not wanting to deal with people telling him what to do. I somehow just conflated that with the idea of him not wanting to have the responsibility of being a parent and being a parent to me. There's never a good time to learn that your dad died by suicide. But Olivia is just a few weeks away from starting high school. And for her, learning that her dad is gone, makes this big life transition even worse..

I've been because of their appeals for help to Washington and the international community. The women have been charged in absentia, with being traitors to the homeland. So what would happen if you went back to Nicaragua now? Would you be arrested? Definitely be yes. Not only arrested, but if they condemn me, that would be life prison. The violence Nicaragua is fueling an exodus. Tens of thousands of Nicaraguans have fled to Costa Rica and U.S. customs and border protection says about 38,000 Nicaraguans have reached the U.S. border since June, compared to less than 800 people over the same time last year. In August, the State Department announced more sanctions against members of the Ortega regime. But at the same time, the International Monetary Fund approved sending more than $350 million to Nicaragua. It's supposed to help fight the hunger and COVID. What do you think they're going to give them money to? Just to put these people in jail and torture them even more. Last month, members of Congress from both parties demanded the IMF reconsider sending more money to Nicaragua. This is just not acceptable. And called for stronger sanctions against Ortega. The Pentagon has also worn Congress that Russia has been supplying Nicaragua with millions of dollars in military equipment and training, and that Ortega has allowed Russia to build a listening station so close to the U.S.. Haven't we heard this story before? This all sounds very familiar. It is. Going back 35 years to the middle of the Cold War. That is unfortunately the scenario where we are operating. We are living now. Jose Miguel vivanco says with Russia's continued military and financial support, U.S. sanctions will not be enough to convince Daniel Ortega to change course.

It has become clear that the killers were from their ranks. They think that for this reason they will not be brought to justice and punished. I repeat, we will not rest until they are punished.

Just days before the verdict, Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah dismissed the tribunal in a speech, saying, We're not concerned with the special Tribunal of Lebanon's rulings. We cling to the innocence of our brothers should unjust verdicts be issued against them.

Stalin rose to power in the Communist Party in Soviet Union Chomsky emerged. As one of Stalin's main critics and opponents Trotsky was against the increasingly bureaucratic Soviet state and called for more democracy in the Communist Party. He thought that the Stalinist policy of socialism and one country would hinder efforts for World Revolution in Nineteen Twenty Five. Trotsky was removed from his post in the war commissariat. The next year he was dropped from the Polit Bureau and in nineteen twenty seven he and his supporters were expelled from the Communist Party. In January of Nineteen Twenty eight Trotsky was exiled to a tie and Soviet Central Asia. He lived there for a year before he his wife and their son were expelled from the Soviet Union and sent to Turkey but he continued to write and criticize Stalin as well as people who had opposed Stalin but has settled for the regime. Trotsky settled on the Turkey island of principle where he stayed for four years. He completed his autobiography and his three volume history of the Russian revolution some of his supporters volunteer to serve as his bodyguards but in nineteen three Chomsky and his family were offered asylum in France soon enough. He was no longer welcome in France either and he moved to Norway then Mexico where he had been granted asylum skis settled in Koya con area of Mexico City at the Blue House the home of painter Diego Rivera and free to Carlo and he continued to write completing the revolution betrayed in one thousand nine hundred eighty six but in a series of trials in the late.

What Does it Mean for a Machine to "Understand"? with Thomas Dietterich

"We're really digging into this topic. what it means for machine to understand A recent blog post postive yours and I thought to get things kicked off. I read your couple of the opening sentences you wrote critics. A recent advances in artificial intelligence complained that although these advances have produced remarkable improvements in AI system these systems still do not exhibit real true or genuine understanding the use of words like real true and genuine imply that understanding is binary system either exhibits genuine understanding or. It does not the difficulty with this way of thinking. Is that human understanding. We're standing is never complete and perfect as so certainly the way you've laid that Opening argument out it resonates with me. I recently Had Gary Marcus on the show. This was back in September and we spoke about the book that he recently launched rebooting. Hey I And he's pretty. He's very outspoken. As a critic of deep learning. And maybe that's not the way he would put it maybe he'd say a critic of deep learning kind of as a standalone path to Artificial General Intelligence but union reading the blog post I couldn't help but think of Gary. Marcus says being although you didn't name him kind of You know person in absentia that you're writing adding this to maybe talk a little bit about the you know the broader context for This post and maybe how you know what prompted you derided right. If you know Gary was part of you know what you're thinking about Or not I'd love to kind of get a sense for where you're coming from here. Well certainly you know Gary and I have had Opportunity even to engage in formal debates and Gary As I was saying I think Gary's main points I generally agree with which is that there are lots of obvious. Shortcomings are existing systems and in particular These systems based on deep learning But but Gary He and other people can't seem to stop saying things like well when we look at the behavior say of Google translate It's clear that it doesn't. It's not exhibiting real understanding of the of the languages translating or or When we talk about Siri that series and doesn't really really understand What we're talking about And I've been making the counter argument. Yes these systems are understanding. And it's it's real understanding but it is narrow understanding and So I am criticizing the use of the word real to mean deep and complete understanding because that denies that these systems are doing anything that is intelligent or that is exhibiting real understanding and I think that puts puts you in the position that you will never be happy with any system because no matter how good gets it will make mistakes and exhibit failures and it's understanding and are you going to say well when understands ninety five percent of what people say that it's still not real understanding. I mean what you're pushing yourself into a a a belief that there's some magic threshold that if you could somehow cross it you would have a system that had real understanding and I don't think that's the way it works. I think that the way it works works is that we make Incremental progress sometimes. Bigger leap sometimes no progress for periods of time As we were doing in speech recognition for for a while in the nineties but our systems get better they are able to understand something so as I say when I tell Siri please call Dan and he calls the right person. It has understood me for the purposes of that utterance for that task. Now if I said you know Siri tell me what Dan means means to me And it doesn't really know anything about what it means say for To be a best friend and you know but let's many people of course have remarked that it's Impossible for two human beings to fully understand each other so That brings me back again. To what is is it. We're really trying to achieve when we build. Ai Systems and as an engineer. I would say I want systems that can make the appropriate response when I asked them to do something. Or if they're warning me if some situation in the world that I should be paying attention to and so on and to the extent that they do that correctly directly I would say they understand What what what I want them to do when we have these kinds of conversations? I think it's you know there's a slippery slope it kind of devolving to defining every term in the arguments But In this case I I wonder the extent to which we're talking talking about different types of understanding Do Do you think that that is The case at all here. I don't know that there are different types but certainly different definitions. Aw I mean obviously we are arguing about definitions and In My blog post I. I was supporting the view that instead dead of argument about our definitions we should be trying to be should be asking ourselves. Well what tests would you give to a system in order to evaluate whether it's understanding in a doing a particular type of task well right if you say well this is is not a narrow Show me all the the Things that you would like to do that. It is failing to do now And I drove through the analogy to test driven development and software engineering Right at the test. First and then use those to decide how to engineer the system to try to meet those tests And then keep writing more tests. I and I think Gary has actually jumped on that and on twitter. He's been Asking people you know what's wrong with our current natural language wjr understanding tasks and because it seems that we can often get an assist him to do well on the on a particular benchmark task. Ask and yet again. It turns out that it's very narrow and it's not doing well on any like immediately adjacent tasks that we would like it's a new And and so some people have been. There's been a bit of a discussion now about that. And and I think that's really where the discussion needs to go is You know and and Gary himself himself in in our twitter conversations I thought articulated beautifully said. Okay I want the computer to be able to say Rita Story and tell me The answers answers to the journalist questions who what when where why how So why did this person do this. What did they do? When did they do it? You know Ordered these events for me correctly clean time and those are way beyond what we can the state of the art in a and natural language understanding some of the people in the natural language community said just stop using the word understanding at all. We've just caught language processing because we know that That this word understanding Sets expectations for something. Something that is very broad and deep you know duck. Hoffstetter had a very interesting piece that came out last year where he analyzed Google translate and showed how many many cases where Google translates understandings clearly extremely surface oriented and often? It can't understand anything about did. Did John Do something to marry was married doing something. John knows that John Maher need to both be translated In into the different language language. And it certainly doesn't have any of the You know connotations and Depth say that would be required to to translate more poetic language would your metaphorical language It really has no understanding of Human Social Relationships What that might make Mary angry? What might Make John Happy. you know just it's completely clueless about that because all it has been taught to do is is to translate from Chinese into English English into Chinese for fairly straightforward every day sentences and certainly not trying into translate Shakespeare at all and one can imagine that it could make very serious mistakes result in say highly highly emotional and complex Social situations it's fine for. Where's the nearest bus stop? But not so good for you know so why. Why aren't you talking to me anymore or something? I do want to encourage us to move beyond saying well either understands it doesn't and this understanding is true true or it isn't to say well. This understanding is incomplete in these important ways and and what we would need these to do and so for example when we think about reading a story or just engaging in a dialogue we need a systems that can be building and maintaining an interpretation of the dialogue and this is well known in the natural language community. We just don't know really how to do it at scale. We can build applications in a narrow domain Say Purchasing airline tickets or something where air we can cover a lot of different linguistic phenomena and An have Quite good performance but as soon as you step out of that narrow domain that breaks down.
