“You can always count on Americans to do the right thing — after they’ve tried everything else.” — Winston Churchill

☕ “Brute force is enough.”

“…all models are approximations. Essentially, all models are wrong, but some are useful. However, the approximate nature of the model must always be borne in mind…” — George Box

☕ Start with something simplistic. Fix it with epicycles. As fast as possible.

“There are two ways of constructing a software design: One way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies, and the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies. The first method is far more difficult.” — C. A. R. Hoare

☕ Asymmetric lotteries may be good when the upside greatly outweighs the downside.

🎯 Do not be a lottery ticket for someone else.

Soon, the field of ML will come up with a benchmark for joke understanding. “If a LLM can explain the following 2,500 jokes, then it has solved the problem of humor.” Then by 2024 a 300B parameter model will achieve superhuman humor levels.
