    PICARD - Parsing Incrementally for Constrained Auto-Regressive Decoding from Language Models. PICARD is a ServiceNow Research project that was started at Element AI. (by ServiceNow)

    We tried using OpenAI/Davinci for SQL query authoring, but it quickly became obvious that we are still really far from something the business could find value in. The state of the art as described below is nowhere near where we would need it to be:

    https://yale-lily.github.io/spider

    https://arxiv.org/abs/2109.05093

    https://github.com/ElementAI/picard

    To be clear, we haven't tried this on actual source code (i.e. procedural concerns), so I feel like this is a slightly different battle.

    The biggest challenge I see is that the queries we would need the most assistance with are the same ones that are the rarest to come by in terms of training data. They are also incredibly specific in the edge cases, many time requiring subjective evaluation criteria to produce an acceptable outcome (i.e. recursive query vs 5k lines of unrolled garbage).

  • spider

    scripts and baselines for Spider: Yale complex and cross-domain semantic parsing and text-to-SQL challenge

  • webextension-polyfill

    A lightweight polyfill library for Promise-based WebExtension APIs in Chrome

    I've written extensions before and Firefox has a very good polyfill [0] that makes it quite easy to write extensions for all browsers. It does get a bit trickier if you also want to incorporate TypeScript [1] or React however.

    This is a TypeScript ready "wrapper" for the WebExtension browser API Polyfill by Mozilla
