WASM in the Kernel, Open Access, Instrumenting Complex Systems, and Attacking NLP
- kernel-wasm — Safely run WebAssembly in the Linux kernel, with faster-than-native performance..
- Smithsonian Open Access — images, 3d models, and more. The ultimate goal is digitizing their whole collection. (via Smithsonian Magazine)
- Systems that Defy Understanding — In such systems, we must resort to empirical methods. Instead of reasoning about the system and reading the source to answer questions, we find ways to ask questions about the running system. We can perform such queries by looking at existing logs and metrics, or by adding new instrumentation.
- TextFooler — a model for natural language attack on text classification and inference.
