If you would strive for maximal inefficiency, you would especially fund those researchers who already have enough money to do research and not give money to the scientists who have insufficient funds. Maybe unsurprisingly, this is what happens. (8/16) biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/โ€ฆ

โ€œThe Communist Party canโ€™t tolerate a free press covering its demolition of Hong Kong freedom, so it slanders the cityโ€™s journalists as criminals and traitors.โ€
From @WSJopinion: Chinaโ€™s Communist Party views all economic activity as fundamentally political. This weekโ€™s crackdown illustrates how no one is safe doing business in Hong Kong. on.wsj.com/3Htpi2R

Curation != censorship. Equating the two is detrimental to conversations in this space. Likewise "libertarian" is a weird choice to describe "include whatever crap the scrapers find".
Replying to @jackclarkSF
I'm excited to see how people eventually build out different datasets which embody different attitudes re this (ranging from heavy censorship to maximally libertarian) - this will give us useful insights as to the 'cost' of diff kinds of AI interventions.

What is "automated story generation" you ask? It's a subfield of AI research where we're trying to get computers to tell stories. And there are different ways to do this... 1/

This image is one of the reasons I became a fan of Universal Basic Income. We have a lot of programs to help people but have a lot of overhead & barriers to providing the help so people donโ€™t take advantage. Just send people a check and calculate how much similar to taxes.
Them: "Why can't we just have a short web form where people could learn all the benefits they're eligible for?" Me:

The ongoing consolidation in AI is incredible. Thread: โžก๏ธ When I started ~decade ago vision, speech, natural language, reinforcement learning, etc. were completely separate; You couldn't read papers across areas - the approaches were completely different, often not even ML based.
