"millennium hall" Discussed on Talking Machines

"To talking machines. I'm Katherine Foreman and I'm neal learns and today we are bringing you breaking our format. Our usual format our new usual format a little bit kneel at we have the opportunity to sit down with the General Chair and senior program chair or this year's interruption of the international conference on learning representations I clear which was entirely virtual this year Alexander Rush of Cornell and Shakira Muhammad of deep. Mind thank you so much for joining us today. I really appreciate it off. Excellent Catherine great to be here. I'd love to do a little bit of background on. I clear I just sort of like mainly to give us a sort of a context for the conference in in the ecosystem of other conferences. WanNa know how did the conference get to where it is today? Yes thank you neil. That sounds like a very good question. How the conference get to where it is today. This year was already breaking ground. It was going to be taking place in Ethiopia which I think is the first time any of the large conferences have been held on the African continent But then all of a sudden we had this massive global change and it was decided that the conference would take place entirely. Virtually so Sasha. I'd love to hear from you a little bit more about how you see. I clear fitting into the larger system of conferences. And what your experience with. It's been and how this change took place shore so this was the eighth international conference of learning representations but it was run as a workshop for several years so it started in two thousand thirteen. And I think what's remarkable about the conference it's been experiencing exponential growth for the last basically for its entire history and so it's a conference where everyone is kind of a newcomer each year. We have most people kind of experiencing it for their first time. I think personally I didn't really attend. I clear till about three or four years ago and I was coming from it from the natural language processing community so conferences like ACL P that she makes up a relatively large part of kind of this multi disciplinary area. It's a conference. That kind of welcomes a large group of people doing different forms of representation learning and deep learning and things of that form I think it differs from some of the other machine learning conferences in that. It's a bit more experimental. I think a lot of people know it for its experimental reviewing format and for the structure of how it's laid out and I think one of the reasons it was so interesting to work on is because it's a conference that kind of allows for more experimentation in its format in its structure and we took that to heart in both the venue this year and also in kind of change to the virtual conference format. So this sort of like the experimental stuff it does on its own. It was the first to open reviewing. And then there's the experimental stuff that's forced upon it so. I find so amazing. What you had to do this year is first of all you were taking a major conference to the African continent for the first time which was a major undertaking in itself. And then you had to cancel the first major conference on the African continent. Tell us how how I don't know who's best to sort of speak to that. She cared. Do you want to tell us how that came about? And how you reacted yes. I think we were actually quite far along in our work dealing with the European conference it was going to be in a great venue in the Millennium Hall. Very close to the airport in Ethiopia. Lots of things have been set up. Even down to the whole Shedu of the conference itself was set up. The we're going be three. Parallel tracks experimented the conference in that way. All the keynotes. All the speaking. The setup of the post is all of these kinds of things are done and then it was a difficult time the end of February the beginning of March when it was very clear that the long run of cove it and would come into effect and a lot of consideration and debate with many many different kinds of people around actually cancelling the conference. But I think in the end You know it was obviously a good decision. Forced us to experiment in the new way so I was pretty happy with the with the end to actually get to do it. So what was the thing that Chicago pops happiest about about the way the conference went the thing that surprised you the most because I know both of you I mean it must be in so much stress. Just organizing a major conference like this is like major stress in in the base case and then organizing one where you have to reorganize the entire conference within the space of a few weeks. I just can't imagine it but let's start with the positive things and and pats that recession. Say She Sasha. What was the thing that you most pleasantly surprised about about the conference? Yeah so there. I think there were a lot of things that kind of were unexpected or kind of emergent behavior. That came up during the conference itself. The part that I think I spent the most time on and was most excited about was the the social interactions particularly chat and the socials. That emerged I think that was the part we were most worried about. It's the part I get the most out of conferences talking to experts in the field kind of having conversations that you didn't expect or learning about papers that you didn't know that we're coming. We really built that around kind of slack. Like chat experience and seeing the different topic rooms emerged. There was a very interesting created. A I room. That came out of nowhere. The community had several very interesting events. That were just so neat to attend and then we also ran several mentoring sessions just kind of out of nowhere in the middle of the conference that were super interesting and kind of almost better than I would have imagined. That could have occurred. Say getting a drink at a bar at an normal conference that that's really interesting social PA which is good almost thing. That's one of the toughest bitch I guess it's just a different type of social experience and of course everyone's sort of locked away anyway so any social. It's Great Care. How was also the social part yet pleasantly surprised there were so many things I think from. Just the ability to engage with our speaking usually gets a keynote speaker comes up to the stage. They end their talk. You get this one question very quickly and everyone has to rush off to the next to the next talk to the next poster session but here. We actually got to have a very long meaningful conversation with our keynote speakers. Very much. Like this kind of podcasts. We get to take questions off the CIA. Take Life questions really getting engaged. Go Bit more deeply by the thing that I found. Most surprising was maybe to pick up on the experimental nature of the conference. In the virtual format. The conference itself becomes the new kind of environment in which you can experiment and play in and particularly for us. We use a lot of machine learning tools in the design of the conference in the reviewing process. We had some late unbearable models that we use to do calibration of scores. The natural language tool I can tell you a lot. More than does the visualization and the recommendation. We actually do have recommended system in the back and their questions are on fairness of the recommended recommendations that we are given that they Equally every paper is represented. And so I think is really something powerful about virtual conference that now. Our own conferences an environment in which we can play and redeploy the work. That's actually presented the conference. I thought that was for me. Pretty something special. I don't want to say almost kind of like saying it was like second life with a purpose rather than so secure. I'd love to dig in more on those tools a little bit because I think one of the things that a lot of conferences and a lot of in person gatherings these days or just thinking about is like okay. Well a virtual meeting is just one where everybody gets on zoom now and we just do the same thing but we do it as far apart from each other as we possibly can but you guys spent the time to create all these tools that she. I think you were mentioning when you're talking about the sort of like eating your own dog food process that use a lot of ai to create the conference for curator information organizing things exploring the the papers that you had. Can you tell me and I believe and this is the room. That's going around that. Sasha insecure you guys made a lot of those yourselves right. Can you tell me a little bit about the process of making those and like how you decided that these were needed? How did you go from okay? We can't go to Ethiopia so we'll have the the world's largest zoom call to thinking about curate this information in a way that's going to be more efficacious in a in a digital environment. How did you make those curatorial choices for me? I think what we designed the conference we had we. We actually met for six weeks three days a week. Five thirty PM UK tie For the entire time and there were two principles we use. The design of conference and one of them was that we needed to be accessible and the other one was to be inclusive. And so everything was designed around these. Two kinds of principals and inclusion meant it needed to be worldwide global. So it doesn't matter if you're in Sydney or in Lima in Johannesburg or London. The conference should not force you to work at a bizarre. Our and one of the things we want to do is healthy working hours favor on whether or not your parent. The covert crisis means that you cannot do certain things recovering. You could create a flow of activities. Whenever you could. You could skip today. Go to Thursday comeback to today and so that was really an many tools make things certainly inclusive Because of them you know there are certain questions around. Accessibility captioning mobility. That don't need to be question. We can talk about some of the disadvantages of this on and then cost was another issue. We often talk about visas. Cost Travel Hotel expenses. All of these sort of go away and then inactive I think Sasha mentioned earlier on the social element that we really wanted that to be trying to recreate to the extent that we could that bumping into the corridor to be introduced by someone else to have kind of self organizing ability to chat everywhere and speak to everyone at anytime so these were the two and whenever we face a very difficult situation where we needed to make a decision or tweaking. The design of the website. We would come back to these two principles. Do they support inclusion? Do they support accessibility and then simplified our decision-making also because we only had six weeks? Yeah so in terms of actual tools. We use so about three weeks before the conference. It became clear that we have a lot of ideas but that it would be very hard to find someone that we could kind of pay to implement them. I have a very close collaborator Hendrix. Robots and we worked for the last several years on visuals -ation methods for understanding a systems. So we have several collaborations on that front. And he mentioned that a couple years ago he built a tool for document visualization and that he was very interested in revisiting. Some of these questions in kind of a world where we have. Ai Methods supporting them and so it seemed like a great opportunity for collaboration and we were both quarantine so we thought we would try it out and so we decided we were just going to go forward and build what we could We started with kind of a design that we wanted as much kind of browsing as possible that we wanted to have some search but really we wanted to kind of have the experience that you're walking around conference looking for what's cool and kind of seeing. What's there so all our tools kind of build in kind of randomness? I A lot of kind of exploratory. Visualizations things of that form and then we also thought it would be fun to utilize a bunch of AI tools to make this possible one tool we used was a.

"Hi SPN Ole emojis. I get it I get it forward. How you doing with your with your automobile? uh-huh -dorsements the I put on my leg at a time. By the way somebody tweeted in this is interesting that the older people call it. The Graham. millennials call it INSTA- and I Guess Generation Z.. The kids were kids. Who those people younger than the Millennium Hall than I G? Yeah so what do you call it. Because you're a millennial installer from Oh now on instance you're how old how old the oldest millennial is like generational where that stops. It stops that like what. How old aveer the? What's the? How old was the oldest? You can be still be millennials baseball. I think it's like thirty higher. Thirty seven thirty. Seventy youngest millennial is twenty four. Oh Wow so. They're they're older than had grown older. The it's Gen Z.. Now are the people that I think most people ran by the way I think I think millennials get a bad round around problem with Lindsay. And here she was great. Yeah no she's one of our favorite me. She's a good one. Yeah she's one of the good one. Good one is a good one. Some of my best friends millennials. I'd so we're talking. I want to get into this little bit. NBA Ratings are down this year viewership across ESPN TNT and NBA. Down fifteen eighteen percent year over year. Why do you think that is? I think it's fifteen percent by the way is significant is and it's a combination shirow things first of all people love dynasties as much as people say they don't and they warriors or dad learns dead and I think that makes a difference because people the casual basketball fans are attracted tractor to that kind of thing gear Michael Jordan Dynastic Laker teams dynastic. So that's not there. Yeah then Lebron to the west coast. So you've got a star who moves their Anthony Davis East Coast to see those games right well on except for very very late or and they're late and then the stars that are on the east coast Irene. Irving's been heard. Kevin Durant has played a game. This year Steph. Curry's been basically heard all year Klay Thompson has been heard all year John Wall has been hurt all year. So there are a lot of guys that are missing thing and so I think that has something to do with variety reported this and this was as of the end of the year. Right right around the end of Twenty nineteen in in the first two and a half month month's season sixty three percent of games on ESPN TNT. Were missing one or more stars either. Due to load management orangerie mostly injury. Yeah either by the way. The load management thing is so overblown really. There's one team one livers and honestly it's one Guy Paul. Paul George has been hurdle in quite well. Choirs load is load managed in combination with actually having injuries. But you're right. It's one guy on on one team so so the whole load management thing is over Bryant. I mean I think even the this whole thing about like the NBA devalued the regular season which to some degree is true. Yeah but they devalued sound like it was any more valued last year when the ratings were fifteen percent higher. It's not like analytics wasn't a thing. Oh analytics make it. So people don't WanNa watch their their antics last year. When the ratings were higher one of that area I think one of the big things is that there's no real team turmoil? There's not a team a high profile team that is going through something whether it's back biting or argument or lack of chemistry industry or any of those things And I think people gravitate towards storylines that I I would agree So I think it's also missing that. Yeah it's the western conference is super compelling. If your basketball I WANNA point out. By the way ratings are up dramatically on in L. A. on Jordan and on radio for sure I mean municipally radio given the quality radio radio brought Ireland happened to do radio ratings wound up But it's it. There's a lot that goes into those. I Dan that's the big factor too like all the amount of stars that just have not been on the court. It has a huge impact on this. I think it's as people WANNA WANNA find all these hidden reasons that are related to analytics or the players are too political or too many threes. That's a popular thing broadcasts. Casts are two political whatever yes. Pin is to. All of this stuff was happening last year and year those analytics deal the league politically. I would agree with it has been. It's it's I think it's just much simpler vis the dynastic team is right and half of the League. Stars aren't playing. Yeah like He. Just you know. If you're you're a casual basketball fan you tune in to watch Kevin Durant if Katie were healthy. This year play with a healthy Kyri. The Net New York market at the next games would be a thing. Yeah Yeah and they're not because neither one of those guys have been on the floor terrible and they plugged in a lot of those New Orleans Games. Yes in Zion. Hasn't been there around. So you're that's not a tune unit I would imagine that the game Wednesday Zion's debut assure rate I'm sure great yes and. ESPN was sure Senate were. They sent a press release. They do the ratings were Mass Pike and look it up like they were. It was huge. It it's just it's simple excellent when you don't have the product when you don't have a stars in the NBA certainly made it about about the stars more than the teams. Yeah but that's been true since the beginning of the David Stern era. Yes that's not exactly a new development when you're missing half of the stars you can put on TV right you're gonNA lose some audience. Yeah I'm actually in some ways surprise go now more yeah fifteen percents pretty big bite. It is but now. Here's here's something do you think cause for the most part MVP races have been run away. The last few years awesome this year to me. It's wide open. You've got Lebron you've got jaanus. You've got Luca you've got a d. not the MVP race is is wide open. You can make a case for each of them. I don't know if was nine of of seventy three from three or something. Last week was like saw names hard. He still crazy now. We're talking about this before like he's you know. The efficiency has certainly down. He still averaging English thirty seven points. A game yeah like. That's really good. No but there was a stretch where I think he was nine of seventy three some numbers but it I saw it sounds awful partly bat. Yeah I just can't wrap my head around nine of seventy three and MVP during any stretch he wouldn't be my vote. Yeah he he's distinctly. I think behind I think these lists starts with Johnson. Lebron yes and then from there you start adding other guys. This is an ad. I could make an argument for Luca. I would put Don Church ahead of harden but you know hardens Donncha the cheese averaging thirty seven points a game absurd. So he's got to be in there somewhere. I understand people don't like how does it. But I mean he's got to be in there somewhere for rockets team by the way nine hundred seventy three but he was. He hasn't been nine of satellite y'all year. 'cause I okay you're adding up good. It's been better than that at times. See I think. Mvp Award and so so this wide open nature of the MVP race. I wonder if that's not something that people start to follow in start to engage with it. Good Oh here we go. I found it best I got in the last five games. He's eleven fifty seven eleven a fifty seven and if I could go back further but Levin fifty seven five game stretch wjr that's crazy You WanNa know the Statistics on Zion's regular season debut. Yes two point. Three five seven million viewers eighty eight percent from last year's comparable game. Okay peak viewership two point seven seven million average rating one zero one point six type I for ESPN's highest rated game For Non Christmas up one hundred percent year over year and one point six million views across. ESPN DIGITAL OH platform. So this one was a biggie. Right yeah and and I would imagine from this point. Forward New Orleans is going to be a drive by the way New Orleans it should have been playing really well. They had Without Siah Yeah and you add to the mix and all of a sudden I think five thirty dot com had them as the most likely they start to to crack the. Yeah I actually wrote about this today for the athletic and we're GonNa talk about during fasttrack at the very least the pelicans statistically at least according to that model which is the model that I wanNa believe because tells me what i WanNa hear yes Have the best chance of getting in better than the spurs who are currently in the eighteen or Memphis who is next Greg pointed out today. Corporate Greg pointed out today that The spurs in their entire franchise. History have missed the playoffs only four times. The last time was during the first death gropers and this bird whose during grover Cleveland's first of his nonconsecutive terms. That's a crazy run. It's insane. Yeah Yeah I wanted to icon the all the only reason I would want to see them in. There is just to see that keep going. So who would you vote for right now for Mvp Janas would you vote knowledge cryonics just because obviously it's the off. He's the only candidate in there. That is I think kind of the clearcut candidate to be the MVP and also defensive player of the year. He's kind of both of those guys and you know the the Lakers as good as a d. has been an ADA eighty S. I think to yet for defensive player of the year on the other side of it has been a little less consistent and the Lakers are clearly Lee at eight and offensive team. That's built around Lebron. And what he's been doing more than they are a D.. When bronze off the floor in a d is on the floor? The Lakers are not a good team correct and when both of them before their catastrophic I mean Lebron on the floor makes everybody yet so much better means essentially. He's close to if not leading the league in assists right now he is. He is leading absolutely all all year long. He's been leading the league elitist So she I the Lakers as you mentioned with him off the floor are nowhere A. and Lebron's defense has been good. Not Anthony Davis good. Not Ya'll but he's working really hard but he's working now like that. That's what my favorite things about the two New York Games. In fact the Lakers one was like you could watch Lebron particularly in the Knicks game. Yup just like okay. I'm measuring this out. I'm not GonNa let them get too close. So that like we're there's any threat of US losing this game but I'm Gonna I'm GonNa go at seventy percent. Eighty percent facilitate the offense. I'm not gonNA take the the really hard drives of. He's essentially load management correct while while eight thirty five minutes. Yeah that's exactly what the Lakers need. Like if they can figure out how to make it's not just about how many minutes you play or did you. Replay seventy three games or seventy five games. What effort was expended right? That's what it is now. Every thirty five minutes stretch is the same. Yeah and so if you can spend thirty five five minutes that's easy. You could play twenty eight minutes where you have to work a lot harder than you would in a thirty six minute game against each other. They got to figure out. How can they give Lebron more? Nick Games the crazy thing about Yoenis is He's thirty thirteen and five in an average of thirty minutes per game. That's that's really good thirty points in thirty minutes. He's I know Lakers fans and by the way is to be Christmas or John is a step down clearly In terms of running mates. Oh sure I mean they do have bledsoe which helps whoever they have like a three. That's better than BLEDSOE. Could make the all starving all three of those guys..

It's like I can't believe how big the package. I don't know where to put it. On the floor with everything else pretty much where it's all Gillan. Then I also got the blue dia clone kon, make toys exclusive. I thought you already had that. Now, this is one of the only colors I was missing. So now, maybe it was done. Maybe dawn had that. Don, got it. Don, got it. But I'd wait for mine. Come in. He had someone ship into him from the show. I actually had to wait till the store had it in stock now. Everything's just falling everywhere. And it's all like logging that is done. I no, no, no. I I got some more stuff. You just have to dig it out. I mentioned this before I got my second hoodlum. Backwards. Yeah. For reason if you on the on the Asian version, which was basically the second run they added a pad in there to protect the hood against chipping because all the US versions were chipping on the front of the hood. Okay. This is a fixed version of because I always say like when I get fans toys off Asia. It takes me like a month or off Attala takes me like a month month and a half after US get some because the first set of figures goes to the US, and then Asia gets there's and it's normally reverse normally like extra Botts all those other companies normally they distribute their first round to all the sellers that are close to them and then ship their next batch to the US or maybe at the same time. But the way fans toy. Does is first batch goes the US and second batch goes to the Asian markets. So I thought that was interesting that there was actually fixed version for the problems everyone's been having with him and excuse for you to buy another one. Yeah. And then I also got all the siege. Stuff. The wave to the locks is from has repulse and sound wave and star scream. The how many how many boxes total did you get from Hasbro pulse. It was too. It was each figure had its own box. So I got like six boxes from or shop urged. That's ridiculous has report. Yeah. Now, I'm going to be very interested with my Saturday stuff or Friday stuff because the order number actually was not split into two sub orders it is two items on same order, and I wanna see how it is shipped to me. I'm very curious about this. Yeah. That's a good question. Kilby? I think was tweeting out some pictures of his and he got several boxes. Also. I got four today. That's why they left me that container when they. Delivered. And then this is also pretty cool, my friend, rob found this little Bumblebee, it's fidget toy which I've never seen before. So he picked it up for me. It was like resigned nine at some discount store. I'm not really sure what store the the sticker. Doesn't look familiar to me some evil looking bumble bee. Yeah. And it's got a weird smile, and it's it's kind of really cool. So I'm really excited that he picked this up for me because I had no idea this thing actually existed square. Demon be. And I think that's all I got this week. That's worth actually Eric thing in Minecraft, at least in the Maude. But Eric, did you get anything did you go? So I got all my Hasbro pulse. Transformers last week. But I did get general grievous from them this week and knees so good his articulation is like really weird because it works in different ways than most toys 'cause he's very, you know, unique body, but it's really good. Once you get used to how it works. I'd say that he's tied with Mace Windu for the best black series figure of all time. It's really impressive. How they did it. So this he come with like multiple lot sabers in his arm split out. And he can do his arm to lady yet beacon do his arms you can have two arms combined which have now or you can you can split them apart. Here's flirtation all of them. He has four lightsabres is Cape his gun. So. Yeah. Sees you just need. Obi wan to say. Hello there. Yep. Basically. Kanobi? That's it. That's all I got some. Well, that's it for this show. Thank you guys for. John and triplet possibly I wanna take sins. I wanna thank Chris. He did a really he does really good job all the time. He does I guess we're not doing trip or John or Jason. I don't know. I thought they said they didn't have anything. I got stuff. They go ahead. I'm each figures. Big power. That's all I got to siege. Monsoonal? You guys have already covered. What I have.
