🚨 ICLR SPOTLIGHT 🚨
Unsupervised denoising, i.e. removing noise in data without having ground truth, has a new state-of-the-art. A short 🧵 about why this rocks...

Spoiler: it can also remove structured noise & gives diverse solutions for ambiguous data
Our method, called HDN, employs a hierarchical VAE to learn a latent representation of structures occuring in a noisy body of data. Hence, we can later use the model to sample a space of sensible ‘data interpretations’.
Without any further tricks this leads to SOTA results for removing pixel noises!
(And the sampling discussed above is a super useful bonus feature other methods typically can't offer...)

In the late 90s as a grad student I became interested in the utility of #analytic_philosophy as a language and method of presentation and looked to how other traditions used it - a thread on #Indian_philosophy 1/

I think I can design a game.

A game that can teach the children how to learn.

I am not saying I have done PHD in game design or learning or child psychology.

What I understand is that learning needs to be e fun personal and exciting.

Assumption: kids love to play.
For example..

How would you teach children to speak?

Of course speaking properly need to be taught.

We do that all the time with the kids around us or we were taught by our parents.

Doing it online i.e. at scale is the challenge.
How do we do it?

-He is your dada ji
-Did you say namaste to your visitors.
-Do you recognise our visitors-
-Dont speak foul language
-Remind the correct pronunciation of something
-Ask same thing a few hundred times untill kids respond correctly.
Etc etc etc.
