[Day 879] A script to keep track of state-of-the-art AI research

While doing research, I often find myself wondering: “What’s the state-of-the-art result for XYZ right now?” I just want a tool that returns the summary of the latest SOTA research. My usual go-to place is Google, but I quickly realize that Google often returns:

  • papers that have a lot of citations, which means they are old.
  • articles that discuss SOTA systems. Again, these articles can be a couple of years old.
  • irrelevant results that share the same name as XYZ.

At best, I have to skim those results. At worst, I don’t find what I’m looking for at all (I might if I go to the next page results but who does that?) [See the rest of the post and more information on the script that I wrote on huyenchip.com]

Evil Hangman is like normal Hangman–players try to guess a secret word by entering different letters–except that in Evil Hangman, players are (almost) guaranteed to lose. I said “almost” because Evil Hangman is a program with a deterministic algorithm. If a player knows how it works, s/he can guess the letters in a way to maximize his/her chance of winning.
