    1. Fascinating text on the work of interpreters at the UN with many funny anecdotes. We may use it for our language and diplomacy course.

    2. We never do something, we implement. We don’t repeat, we reiterate and underscore. We are never happy, we are gratified or satisfied. You are never doing a great job: you are performing your duties in the outstanding manner in which you have always discharged them. There is no theft or embezzlement, but rather failure to ensure compliance with proper accounting and auditing procedures in the handling of financial resources. This is a language the interpreter must master very early on.

      great input for our 'UN language'.

    1. There is no treatment at hand, and no certainty of a vaccine on the near horizon. The fastest vaccine ever developed was for mumps. It took four years.

      Text has nice 'music' and cadenza with short sentences.

    2. In a single season, civilization has been brought low by a microscopic parasite 10,000 times smaller than a grain of salt.

      use of nice metaphore.

    1. GPT-2 was described as a “chameleon-like” synthetic text generator, but it wasn’t state-of-the-art in downstream tasks like question answering, summarization, or translation.

      It is an interesting point of difference between text generation, question answering, summarization or translation? Here, we can discuss a potential usability of GPT-2 ||JovanNj||||djordjej||||NatasaPerucica||||Katarina_An||

    2. GPT achieved state-of-the-art in language tasks by pairing supervised learning with unsupervised pre-training (or using the parameters from an unsupervised step as a starting point for the supervised step).

      How can GPT perform supervised and unsupervised pre-training? How it can work practiclally? ||JovanNj||||Jovan||
