  • Adoption of Mypy for Python type checking: 45% already use it, 40% don't plan to
    4 projects | | 21 Mar 2021
    I gave a presentation on type checking at the EuroPython 2017 where I also investigated how many Python projects really use type checking, I present the results at the end (35 minutes in):

    My conclusion was that only a small fraction of projects really used them, there were a lot of projects that had type checks in their code but only in "homeopathic" doses.

    I started using them for some of my Python projects as well (e.g and while I find them useful I think they're not as useful as a "real" type system in a fully typed language like Golang. Still, they're very useful for discovering simple mistakes that would only show up in unit testing otherwise.

    You can also "misuse" them for other purposes, at the end of the presentation I e.g. show how you can implement software contracts with them. Of course this would wreck a type checker like mypy, so don't do that in your codebase. That's probably also one of my critiques as the annotation syntax can in principle be used for anything, but mypy and other tools are not able to deal with code that does that.

    Beneath that? Here's a good example if you'd like to see how professionals do it:
  • [TASK] $100 - host a ML model on AWS
    1 project | | 14 Nov 2021
    There's a ParlAI chatbot model I wanted to host on AWS with websocket APIs. They have the framework set up here, and an exact github issue as well But as you may understand it's a huge pain to get everything to work, especially on a complicated repository, and I've burnt too much time on this.

  • [OFF-TOPIC] I have access to PLATO-XL
    1 project | | 18 Oct 2021
    Some notes from my perspective of PLATO-XL: * The model comparisons sometimes seem deliberately disingenuous. * I love that we’re measuring a ‘hallucination’ score now(!) and this model has a lower/better score when compared against other (older, of course) chatbots. * Why not compare with the latest BlenderBot 2.0, open sourced by FAIR, and available with metrics? * Why not also compare with GPT-3 Curie 6.7B? It would seem to make sense as this is a very popular model, though not explicitly chatbot... * They have failed to mention the largest SOTA chatbot model, Google’s LaMDA (Language Model for Dialogue Applications). Although not publicly released (and maybe even the paper was too late), the recent paper from Google shows that LaMDA has over 100 billion parameters, or ~10 times the size of PLATO-XL…
  • Adoption of Mypy for Python type checking: 45% already use it, 40% don't plan to

    I run a fairly large open source project ( and we use mypy. Our experience has been that it can be quite difficult to placate, so we usually treat it only as a warning. However, having our code annotated with types in many places has significantly improved developer productivity, just from having less ambiguity with what you're dealing with.
