General Motors: Buy The Drop, High Safety Margin
Seeking Alpha· 2024-07-25 12:15
peshkovShares of General Motors (NYSE:GM) fell 6% on Tuesday, after crushing estimates for the second fiscal quarter, and are down another 2% on Wednesday. The auto company raised a number of key metrics for its 2024 fiscal year, including EBIT and free cash flow, as General Motors sees strong demand for its pick-up truck and SUV line-ups. Shares sold off mainly because General Motors reported an unexpected loss in its China business, which the automaker said it would restructure. All things considered, ...
打乱/跳过Transformer层会怎样?最新研究揭开其信息流动机制,一口气解答8大问题
量子位· 2024-07-25 12:06
西风 发自 凹非寺 量子位 | 公众号 QbitAI Transformer中的信息流动机制,被最新研究揭开了: 所有层都是必要的吗?中间层在做同样的事吗?层的顺序重要吗? 如果 跳过一些层 ,比如第4层输出接到第6层会怎样。 随机打乱层的顺序 ,比如4-6-5-7又会怎样。 最近一项名为"Transformer Layers as Painters"的研究火了,由来自AI初创公司Sakana AI、Emergence AI的研究团队完成。 他们从Transformer内部工作原理出发,经过一系列实验对以上问题得出了结论。团队表示深入理解这些原理不仅能提高现有模型利用效率, 还能帮助改进架构开发新的变体。 谷歌DeepMind研究员、ViT作者Lucas Beyer看过后直接点了个赞: 很棒的总结!尽管一些实验在之前的研究中已经被展示过了,但我喜欢你添加的新细节,特别是强调了"推理"类任务比其他任务受影 响更大! 还有不少学者、工程师也表示强烈推荐。 敢打赌,其中一些见解最终将会用于改进Transformer。 其中的实验再次证实了:复制层对创造性任务有帮助,但对推理任务通常无效;改变层的顺序行不通;剪枝在中 ...
ICML最佳论文曾被ICLR拒稿,Pika联创参与,一作已入职OpenAI
量子位· 2024-07-25 12:06
明敏 发自 凹非寺 量子位 | 公众号 QbitAI ICML 2024最佳论文出炉,结果发现其中一篇曾被ICLR 2024拒稿? 这篇论文来自斯坦福,Pika创始人之一孟晨琳(Chenlin Meng)也参与了。 它提出了一种新的离散扩散语言建模方法,通过引入分数熵损失函数,提高了离散扩散模型在语言建模任务中的性能。 实验结果和GPT-2比较,在多数任务中都完胜。 生成效果be like: 5位审稿人给出的分数分别是:88665。 但还是被AC一锤定音,最终reject…… 这不禁让人想起Mamba。作为Transformer架构挑战者,它开创了大模型的一个新流派。结果却被ICLR拒稿。 当时这引发不小争议,包括ICLR创始人之一LeCun都下场表示不满: 很遗憾,历届程序委员会主席慢慢把它变成了一个与传统评审流程差不多的会议。 只有一些小胜利:OpenReview平台现在被大多数ML/AI会议使用,以及论文提交后立刻就能被所有人阅读(尽管匿名)。 Yann LeCun 🙂 @ylecun Yes. Sadly though, successive program chairs progressively ...
