Il paraît que le réseautage fonctionne alors voilà, c'est à mon tour de me lancer
Il se trouve que je suis docteur en #linguistique 👨‍🎓 et je cherche un #job en tant qu'infolinguiste, ingénieur linguistique ou data analyst. Si vous avez vent d'opportunités en région parisienne, n'hésitez pas à m'en faire part 😉

I could talk countless hours about the persecution of people over song lyrics and dark humor tweets, the reinterpretation and downright ilegal appliance of laws, the strict criteria of "rule of law" (aka not changing laws) as an excuse to silently push an ideological agenda over freedom, of how politicians are being held on "preventive jail" while they're being freed at other European countries for the same claims. And if you claim to, in some way, support "fake" freedoms, YOU are the nazi.

My opinion here is minority. I'm in the minority. A recent international poll, for instance, showed that 40% of Spanish ppl would prefer to be governed by a dictator without parliament restrictions. There's no way around this. Most Spaniards prefer to force the idea of a single, united Spain that justifies their worth in life over anything else. It's the fruit of decades of psychological engineering, that's how deep nationalism goes here. And no way around it seems likely other than flying away.

Finetuning neural networks is like whispering eldritch secrets into someone's ear.

Sometimes, they gain small insights.
But more often, their minds can't keep up with the both reality as they know it, and the new info, and they collapse into a pile of goo.

I did some experiments that really highlight how heavily image recognition algorithms depend on probability - and how unprepared they are for surrealism. #machinelearning

a #FOSS rule of thumb: a simple, elegant program that does X (possibly "straight from your command line") will not support RTL languages correctly.

It's not the developers fault. RTL on computers that are built from a low level for LTR, tends to be a bit of a patchwork thing, far from being elegant or simple, and requires a subtle understanding of problems not obvious if you haven't juggled mixed RTL & LTR texts for years.
