GG + NN = Thing 1 + Thing 2?

Language, stealing adopting the BBS model, has a target article by Joe Pater and several replies.

Here's my attempt at bumper-sticker summaries for the articles. You can add your own in the comments. (No, there are no prizes for this.)

Pater: GG + NN + ?? = Profit!

Berent & Marcus: Structure + Composition = Algebra

Dunbar: Marr + Marr = Marr

Linzen: NNs learn GGs sometimes, sorta

Pearl: ?? = interpretability

Potts: Functions + Logic = Vectors + DL

Rawski & Heinz: No Free Lunch, but there is a GI tract

Pater starts out with the observation that Syntactic Structures and "The perceptron: A perceiving and recognizing automaton" were both published in 1957.

Here is a list of other things that were published in 1957 (hint: 116). It may say too much about me, but some of my favorites over the years from this list have included: The Cat in the Hat, From Russia with Love, The Way of Zen, Endgame and Parkinson's Law. But I'm afraid I can't really synthesize all that into an enlightened spy cat whose work expands to fill the nothingness. You can add your own mash-ups in the comments. (No, there are no prizes for this either.)

  1. The discussion is a bit unfocused, but I can't figure out the tone of the post. Are you really saying that none of these articles say anything interesting? Or that there's nothing new to be said on this topic?

  2. I think he's just joking around. We can't all be Very Serious all the time.

    The "GI tract" really cracked me up!

  3. Fair enough—it just struck me as dismissive. (Clarification to the above: 'The discussion' => the reply papers.)
