"And then I had some bad ones just from binary thinkers who wanted to lash back? They don't get it. Then I had a couple angry. Ones and I wanted to bring these up. Because I think they're important. One of them was an FTP post. And if you know what that means, you get the. Death the police and another one had was Kinda, the seem tone, and it was about all cops being bad because the picture that I posted, was of a block protester and a black police officer, and they were fist bumping. Police officers bicycle as a barricade, and it just showed both of them kneeling and connecting, and I thought that was really important for on a number of levels and I think you can probably follow the reasons why it's so powerful to me. It was one of the most powerful photos I have seen of the protests up to this point. And the two comments that I got in regards to FTP and all cops are bad. I wanted to make sure that they understood was is that if you lump everybody in the same group? It's binary thinking and it's also zero sum or absolute is thinking, and that type of limited thinking is what got us into this? In the first place? It's what has created the systemic problems. Problems that we're dealing with and has created the racism that the country has been dealing with for four hundred years. The thing we have to get away from is the binary thinking, and the all or nothing thinking and welcome the fact that some cops want to Neil, so we can't vilify one party or the other just like you can't vilify all the Republicans because I'm one. And there are a lot of us out there. If you go to the Lincoln Project or Republicans Voting Against Trump I've contributed to both of those causes and I continue to contribute to both of those causes all that going forward. A lot of people say oh, you know what's happening on the, or how is this making an impact? I'M GONNA. Run down just a few things in terms of what has happened since all of this started minneapolis bands choke holds, and they're thinking about disbanding the police force that doesn't mean getting rid of the police force that means just creating a different type of force similar to Camden. New Jersey did which is more of a community based policing Dallas adopted duty to intervene New Jersey's attorney. General said the state will update its use of force guidelines I. Know that I just heard here in Phoenix that they're banding chokehold in Maryland. A bipartisan group of State lawmakers announced police reform La. La City Council introduced a motion to reduce LAPD's budget by one point, eight billion I'm GONNA. Get more into the behold budget thing in the morning police issue a little bit later, the police brutality that have been caught on camera and I just saw there is there are over five hundred cases of this happening with during the protests so far they have led to near media, suspensions and firings of offers in several cities, monuments, celebrating confederates or removed in a number of cities, including deep South cities, and even including in European cities and I believe. It was Bristol that they removed A. Slave traders statue and threw it in to the bay where he used to dock the slave ships. How's that for symbolism?

The Secret History of the Korean Bat Flip
"Can you explain in your own words? What a best slip actually is so normally. When a baseball player has a big hit he just kinda gently lays down his right and continues on his way down the base path. But sometimes that doesn't happen sometimes. A hitter is very proud and here. She will watch the ball takeoff and sometimes they'll pause sometimes. They'll do this while they're running. But instead of gently laying down the bet they will launch it into space. There are many different ways of doing this. It can be a flick of the wrist. It can be a throw a defiant curl. Perhaps the bat can travel feet. The back can travel very far but often it sort of twirls through the air majestically like a baton and flip is it's almost like spiking a football Pablo AIDS Celera Tori gesture and as you know. This is something that is taboo. In the United States in major league. Baseball violates the unwritten rules and executing this maneuver will often result in a hitter. Getting next time he's up but in Korea. Backflips are not only accepted. There are also extremely common. That was yes. Our Own Mina cards describing a unique feature of baseball in Korea. The Korean baseball starts it season today as one of the only pro leagues on earth playing amid this pandemic and you'll be able to watch those games on ESPN. So since you might just see. K B O Player flip is bat. I asked me to be a guest on her own show to share my favorite story that she has ever written on why Korean players love to flip their bats. And how it start. I'm Pablo Torre. Tuesday may fifth this is espn daily presented by marathon. I feel insane power right now. I don't know how I feel about this. Meantime is a senior writer for ESPN and the host of this podcast ESPN daily. I am the captain. Now you will feel how I want you to feel. I think is how this works. People can't see this but Pablo was doing the thing where he points his fingers at his eyes and then he's pointing them at my eyes and it's it's very upsetting. So how did the story which I love so much? Actually come about what it was. I think the spring or early summer of two thousand sixteen which is important because we are coming off of the two thousand fifteen. Mlb playoffs whereas. I'm sure you will remember Joey. Batista flipped his Bat. Which feels almost like. I'm understanding what he did after a home run in the AL between the Blue Jays and the Texas Rangers and there were much hand wringing and commentary debate as a result of that critics called the Bat Slip Disrespectful. Not only to the opposing pitcher. Button the game in general if I were a player I wouldn't do that. The fact that a matter is what he did did not offend you. Just don't sit. There is flip your badge especially in the seventh inning but throughout this time and before that there were these videos of backflips coming from Korea. Right ed where Korean baseball players were flipping their bats do as defiantly as Batista and with great joy and style and panache. These videos had gone viral social media. Just so I started looking to a little bit. There's a it was an account on twitter. A website called my K B O. Run by a Korean American guy named Dan Kurtz and so he was sending them out and then they would go. Viral asked him how he got into it. He used to live in Korea. He was huge B O. Fan Korean baseball organization. But then I asked him okay. So why why are they so common in Korea? Why is this normal there? Why our guys not getting drilled in the head and? He didn't know and super intrigued by that. So I got in touch with another Korean baseball expert commentator for the O named Daniel Kim who is based in Korea and he had so many great stories about that flips and what not they there and how they were so common but he also didn't know why or where it started and he told me you should just come here and figure it out. So that's what I did so you actually go to Korea and this. I remember I remember it sounding like one of the great expense report boondoggles ever but you actually go to Korea with Mickey and your story begins in Bussan right and so what you're actually find when you travel across the ocean and get there so we went to Poussin which is extremely large seaside city on the southern tip of South Korea so they have a very popular team the low tae giants and the first thing we do. Is We go to a game at the stadium and it was revelatory cream. It is just crazy crowds. They're much younger than American crowds and they are cheering and dancing and going nuts. And they're they're drinking beer. I guess that's also different. They're all these events. There are cheerleaders cheer master and they're standing on a platform and it is just so much fun. There's an American Fan Mickey and I met at the first game that carry my her and he told us. Mlb is like opera and K B O is like rock and roll so were there and we're having a great time and all of a sudden this player who we. I'd seen before because I had seen of backflips name was Choi Jin Sook and public. He is enormous. That's just the only way to describe is an enormous? He would be so he comes out and his song is Elmo Maceo shots just were not I remember that

What it Means to Be Creative with Vanessa Dewey
"Vanessa is as a community builder marketing professional and currently works at Adobe as the senior project marketing manager. That's a mouthful yes it is. Hopefully this is not actually. I just left on Friday. So it's all new. Okay so my guess my first question it was gonNA be anyways sort of if you WANNA talk to us a little bit about what you're doing. Now what your journey has been up to this point and what you're going to be doing. I guess now in the future shirt. We'll definitely I apologize about that brand new. Everything's happened so quick. No not necessarily I looked at today just to make sure everything was updated. But we don't don't always update linked in with our life right. Yeah especially when things just happened. I'm a little slow to that right now. Yeah no worries I guest. I'll just say overall my career path is definitely not linear. I'm definitely not tick the box type of creative My background is in graphic design for about eight years years. I was in house designed for Mattel branding and packaging orca across multiple verticals of the play patterns of toys And then I serve at a certain time of my career halfway through at during that venture at Mattel I decided to served take something else because I realized there is no outside. Craig is coming inspire a creative community of four hundred to six hundred plus creatives in Los is Angeles so I took on while having a full production schedule realize I need to take on and create the speaker series grassroots and over the course of five years built up from from quarterly to buy weekly bringing design. Thought leaders like Brian Collins. To wwl moment I Leela Nash. Meyer wow what a great idea it was it. It was in theory but that's was in essence in two thousand thirteen. When I started doing that it start planted the seeds because at the same time to I had a thought? What would you next my career so for me? I want is see and found other opportunities to infuse leadership and other types types of opportunities to help elevate and evolve myself as a creative and as a leader so the speaker series is also you know as you mentioned. Aig I got involved. volved in the Los Angeles chapter quite a bit and over the years that served helped me in an in a way to supplement where I was looking for that I was in say per se getting as IC Mattel not to say that. The community wasn't amazing but still like that extra in two thousand sixteen. I think this is just a year or so before I bet you my life I hit my. What's next month in my career? I was no longer inspired and just I could do packing branding. But it just wasn't singing to me in my God and then at the same time I decided to leave. My husband divorced him so so there's so much and what I ended up doing was professionally. I was able to take a role and evolve it and creates a so. I guess that's experiential educational and inspirational called the hub ultimately that's supported by four hundred six hundred plus Craybas at the headquarters of Matale. So I continue my speaker series and added onto that by Craig. An Internal Speaker series support at highlight creatives leaders in our community. At mattel a podcasts. Help my L. A. D. My led with crave career path and as a side note this role actually dead. The COO transitioned into H.. Ourselves and learning development so I go home ready packaging to hr so that lasted for almost two years. And I quit when I went into that role I went to a w maximum San Diego and one of my friends is one of the community managers for the creative jams community on team and I went up to see if there was any inside of eighteen was coming enterprise side so as it as it turned out they were working towards that end in summer of two thousand seventeen. I was part of the pilot for Adobe Craig Gems Enterprise Foul. KABC's what okay. So crazy is who don't know okay crave GM's as core. It's part is a to park. They have experienced part inspiration apart hands on Their community and there's also enterprise now but basically basically the format is you have teams of craters two to four depending varies but having teams creatives have asserted brief learn a certain tool from adobe. CBS Adobe Dobie Stockton W rush and then have an our tasks over three hours to address the brief while leverage these these tools rules you then also bring in thought leaders such as local design leaders or even just creative leaders anybody to EXPARC inspiration depending on what you want the talk about and the theme and also the end you bring in all craters and having do presentations of their final deliverables also Two percent of the teams and there's usually prizes and also it's A. It's a nice experience. Yeah it's a hack actually creates a little more elmo fun and not just a hack no. It's just a lot of fun. I actually participated in a creative jam here in Albuquerque. Oh Yeah my team member and I actually won the the choice choice award or whatever the thing is but yeah. I just wanted to kind of explain what that is for the people that don't understand we haven't had one around here in a while so just options is to explain a little bit but so when it happened was coming into twenty twenty eighteen. This program was then adopted onto the Create a quote enterprise side the marketing so I was brought over to join the team. And that's where I ended up so what from branding. Packaging Design Zayn into more of a creative HR learning development role and then that translates very well into this Role within the enterprise side and had it was a great opportunity. What I did was each of basically what I was doing it Mattel's then able to translate across in essence to different customers? Key customer customer so over the course of the first year has A. I was lucky enough to be able to help. Establish that in Europe so I was working with customers curate atheist. BESPOKE EVENTS FOR BBC Vice Media Sky TV to to pet lebrons. I did some in North America to and then I came back to North America Because to focus more on this last year in particular last feels those focusing on North America helping out the team here see. We're kind of split living indeed. Yes correct for the first. While months to fourteen months I was splitting time. Actually between Los Angeles and London which was mental? And then and then then I started phased out of the Arab side but then I still at once. I moved to New York I was for workwise those in New York but still continued when I could because I could work remotely at times. I was in London when I over the course of over the course they are right built a really lovely and inspiring design network and tried of add. Some really dear friends over there so I just could've. That's where everything's to me so I would always go back there when I can. So that's amazing. So are you at liberty to kind of speak to. Oh what your next step is what you're up to right now before we go onto our topic for today sure. No I definitely can't so basically I had a moment of clarity clarity literally Thanksgiving Week. I was elected and I had all these different mope conversations with people and just something clicked and I'm just actually. She probably take a pause to the last three years. I've taken a pause between METALLICA Dobie. I took two days off a Saturday Sunday. which is not a weekend? So I'm just figuring house and delving into what I really WANNA do some side projects and then having conversations I haven't been able to have And a few other things too okay. So what sort of side projects if I can pry. I love people side project so for several years. People keep saying you need to write. You need a ride. So I'M GONNA be pitching some articles goals designed based on creative base but also to one of my passions besides building communities connecting people and is coffee as you probably And you post lovely lovely pictures of coffee a thank you so basically what I'm GonNa try to do is also create a dialogue Building community meaning but more or less talking about coffee also brought it broader crates. So I'm trying to figure out a way to pitch a formatted adage series. So if I'm in London I'll pick three craters or three people within even the food industry and go to their three favorite coffee or wine wine shops and talk about it and go from there some. I'm playing around with different types of not just doing creative or design industry focus writings but other also infusing so my other passions. Yeah that is really exciting. Thank you and then all of this. I'll be taking my pause in in London so I bought a one way so London and the man so We had a long layover. I I was in Europe In at the beginning of October and we had a really long layover in London So so we we had like a four hour chance to just kind of explore as quick as we could.

Sesame Street to launch Arabic-language show for refugee children to help them deal with trauma
"When you're talking with your family and friends at your table this weekend. What are you GONNA be talking? Yeah well I have a three year old daughter and a five year old son and so we will be talking a lot about sesame street this week which celebrated its golden anniversary anniversary. Did you watch this mystery as a kid I did. Yeah Jessica what about you absolutely. And who are your favorite characters. I was always partial to Mr snuffle up this big bird's imaginary best friend and go what about you. I did love big bird a lot. And Ernie and Bert really really were probably my favorites. Though actually wonderful and I was dismayed to find out recently watching it with my children that Mr Smith Aleph guess is no longer I quote unquote quote figment of big birds imagination. Everyone sees him. It was very disappointing to the ranks of the real monsters. Wow that's like saying the tooth fairy doesn't exist well. My favorite character was kermit the frog especially his portrayal of TV news reporter which should come as no surprise But I might soon have a new favorite character and his name is John. John has been introduced to children will be introduced to children in Syrian refugee camps as has one of them he is the Star of Alan Simpson or welcome sesame an Arabic language version of sesame street that has been co produced by sesame workshop and the the International Rescue Committee it teaches letters and numbers. Yes but it also teaches emotional coping measures for the millions. Yes millions of children who have been traumatically they displaced from their homes and may remain displaced for decades especially as countries like the United States. Continue to cut the number of refugees at allows in twelve million Elian refugees. Twelve million six million of them are children and those are the stats get this only two percent of humanitarian aid for education in For refugees two percent and so once again sesame street has come to the rescue just as it did in the late nineteen sixty s when it first debuted John his friend Bosma and Friendly Goat Maza debut in twenty countries across the Middle East in February twenty twenty via satellite dishes in the refugee camps. And from time to time there will be guest appearances by Cookie Monster Grover and elmo. I have to say cookie monster was one of my favorites as well. The project is funded with a one hundred million dollar grant from the Macarthur Foundation and the grant also covers direct services to the families whose children have never been outside the camps and therefore they don't know fundamentals that we take for granted such as imagination or basic information like fish. Come from the sea while the focus will be more on emotional tools these fundamentals annals will also be covered as well and I really do applaud sesame workshop for taking this project on and I say. AJC is also exploring new ways to reach out to The era world in the Arabic language. And we'll be hearing more about that in the months to come but this project in particular is just really fascinating to me. And that's what we'll be talking about at our Table
Afghanistan's version of 'Sesame Street' promotes gender equality with a new muppet

Our team responsibility was to bring us new version into up gun context. Jimmy has been with the this show since practically the beginning and at first. He says he was really nervous. Because most of his writers and producers didn't come from children's programming a lot of them were we're reporters or documentary. Filmmakers I was voted because and my team have the experience of programs for adults but not for children and virtually be school age so he went to New York to take a class at sesame workshop. Jamila learned how to construct a show and promote what you could call sesame. Street's core values fun optimism tolerance. And then he had to go back home and make that work in a conflict zone on this is the approach they decided to take. Its causative modeling. Do not talk for the negative motherly meaning. No mention of violence no mention of the Taliban no mention of Isis. They focused instead on things like emotional health for example. We we talk about fear. We talk about disappointment anger. How control that empathy? Hope that you don't show lance silence or you don't reference no no we don't show the violence and we would like to go through positive because dot war.

"I find it very interesting to think about one of the results of the paper was that doesn't appear as though the size versus quality curve has started to significantly level off yet they're still significant improvement team that the bird base model in which is actually still point margin still much larger than the model within the Burt large model just four times larger there, so significant so rush to me how far you can get discount size model opening is work, and she t- to that you reference gives some hint. As you scale the model size during a large bat. It keeps getting so I think that's interesting avenue for organizations that have access to substantial amounts of computing power. But I think that there's something missing from these systems. I think that evidenced by the fact that they require a substantial amount of training data the order to learn Potter presentations in particular, far more than humans. Do I don't know the estimates are seen them. But I forget thought my head. But even of words that a person might here by the time, they turn ten or fifteen in our flew in a language or the language very well is far far less than that training, decisive trainings, language vitals, on and so there's something about the data officiency that says that they are significantly different than how humans actually learn and process language in. So with that is how we get that into our systems. Is very much. I think have been every search in anyone's guess as what the answer is. But those questions that I think would be very interesting to see the research community start to address. Absolutely. Yeah. Maybe the wind up. I'd love to go into a maybe a little deeper example, you'd mentioned the semantic scholar when in passing could you share some details on that project? Yes. So the original project that we're working on that motivated amounts was information instruction, the tasks that we were considering was one where you're given some texts from research article any need to extract the key entities from the article these things like when data set was years. Some study air what were the ethics that reused to these types of things. Then addition you need to say that extract relationships between entities. So you might say, well, we apply this method or this treatment for treating this disease. Maybe in. The biomedical setting the are twin Chuck e disease and treatment. And then you wanna take replied this treatment for this disease. If relationships between entities, and there is a share tasks that was going on it was several twenty seventeen share tasks that they had collected some anti data running competition for Ben started working on this very quickly began to think about how do we leverage all of a sudden label Smith scholar, the time had very largest the corpus house, even if grown significantly last years. We had lots of lots of research articles that we collected that we could use his own maple data to train systems and some began thinking about how do you use these these large or provide labeled data, and so then the project to make a long story short the project that eventually worked on we had something that was a precursor that we included in our mission. We hit first place in the shared test competition, and then a components of that were then. Reused repurpose input into production in the productions scholar system that with time was also being developed for the hub Nederlandsche unfree listener said in the Smith scholars academic search engine, it's similar to Google Scholar.

A partial sentence fragment from only one side and trying to predict the next word of the previous where it use mask language modeling Jeters where save discarded remove one word from the middle of a sentence in trying to predict given both the beginning in the subsequent context.

I think the two major axes of potential improvement. There's larger corpus's, and there's maybe we'll call it more clever neural architectures, which if any do suspect is the most fruitful avenue to be. Facing down. I think it depends on who you are certainly the upper end of burn large the large bird model requires a substantial amount of computation order to train the model.

"One of the things that I really took notice of when I I read the paper was the breath of different NLP tasks use it on and how kind of remarkable did without being specialized those tasks on a variety of benchmarks. Could you talk a little bit about? Empirical results that are shared in the paper, the miniature vers what we had was exactly what you said that we showed that these Emel representations that you can train with a single pre-training model are transferable to very wide Ryan different tasks in the paper. We've I waited on six different tasks these were things ranging from sensing ossification to question answering information extraction. And then other more structure prediction tasks things like co reference resolution slanted role Ebeling we also dilated on that's natural language inference. We did in these cases, we took were in some cases, the state of their system indicates were very strong baseline systems that were close to the state of the art essentially did what I suggested earlier as we computed the representations than Atta them to these existing state of the systems and all cases got significant prevents in the the previous state of the art the result that we concluded from this is. That these representations trained on a large for will earn very useful. Generally transferable properties of English, which is the only language diverted on their transferable to wide variety of different tasks. There's been a lot of stupid follow were some of which I aspired to. But also in the broader research community that has tried to answer the question of wire, they transferable or what types of interesting properties. Do they learn as part of the sun supervised pre-trading makes them transferable in particular tasks are the most transferable to buy in the paper. We essentially just sure that they were that they did improve downcast said provided a very, you know, half a page or something of analysis. Trying answer the white question in one of the novel features of Elmo is that it's a character based approach instead of just a a word or token based approach. Can you talk a little bit about that choice, and how it impacts the results the choice to use characters? Word approach was a sawn couple of considerations of I it was based on the consideration of wanting to build a single system that could cross S A as white Ryan in Texas. Also in particular, you would love to be able to make informed representation for words that you've never seen before based on things like the following of the word a women's capitalized or with the prefix or suffix or something in previous work in language modeling showed that by cooperating character formation of the model that D'Amato's able to learn learn to some extent in practically speaking with. This means is that you don't have to worry about the out of a cabinet issues that you always encounter when you have say pre-trade warning bitings like glove. Now, there have been some other approaches to incorporate. Somewhere information calculable formation, preach inward, inviting so that has been some had been some extent solved. But in our case, we just took it as a convenience starting point that we were going to not have explicit word petitions, which just character information in the model than learns how to compose various letter combinations or interpret into where two presentations. I know this paper came out a few years ago at this point, and there's been researched since a lot of things inspired by Elmo. Burt comes to mind, maybe GPC to or kind of in the same family. If you will a can you talk about the evolution of these architectures in where almost going maybe a little bit about where your research is headed. But as you mentioned we apron archive over a year ago. Now, I would say the most significant things come out since I'm been bird which extends on a couple of very interesting ways. And also notably scout. Up the size of the training data set in the size of the model. So the various extensions which has been moved to suck Burton particular. Does a couple of things I is that kit switches away from the recurrent on network Galassia market texture that we had used in. No to something that is based on feed for networks in self attention. Something called the transformer architecture for listeners familiar with that this is a much computational efficient approach especially on specialized hardware, like teepee use that who has developed and so by doing this it allowed ruble to scale the size of the model that was trained by many times since we're limited essentially, not by the amount of training..

And this is what then gets used in these supervisory tasks like I talked about this question answering task for instance, if you're interested in that as replacement for. The Glover vectors the words of factors that were there previously. So one of the strengths of Emo, or at least the models. You've trained is the corP. You've built it on the sides of that could you talk a little bit about what your training corpus is in. How large the data you're able the process? These methods are very scalable, you can train them on very large corpora, the corpus that once uses and practice should most cases de motivated by with their and tasks are in our case, we were interested in sort of role to wide variety of different tasks.

What is the intention of VI to do you think people are going to follow the research in build their own models from scratch or pick up the models. You released I guess yet. What would you see is the way someone can get their hands dirty with Elmo? So it depends on who you are what your head and goal is. And people have used the L pre-trade number models in code for a ride variety of different things. Of course, there's the research community. These are people that are looking to build state of the art systems of and they might want to use the best valuable technique in order to make their assistance. That is a can there's definitely. I shop occasions, for instance, if you were building commercial application, you might consider using them to improve quality of the models charity have which might use cloth factors or something like this. So this will be the premier the primary applications and for someone who's looking to just pick up the pre-trade models. Can you talk about the process from day one to delivering something the pre-trade models? We have available in a couple of different places are available.
