“ML Scaling subreddit”, (2020-10-30):
Subreddit for discussing AI, machine learning, or deep learning approaches involving big numbers: billions of parameters, millions of n, petaflops, etc. eg GPT-3. Most research is conducted at much smaller scale; this subreddit is for research analogous to ‘high energy physics’, requiring specialized approaches, large investments, consortium, etc.
Topics: How? Who? Why do they work? What are they good for? What resources are available? Who will pay & how? What is the future of such approaches? What global consequences will there be?
