  • Canvas LMS “Unpublish All” Hack | Dave Eargle
    Canvas foils both goals, as of publication date of this post. (1) There is no built-in way to unpublish all assignments. (2) When a module is published, all items within it are auto-published. But when a module is unpublished, items within it remain published. :facepalm:

  • Model Spec (2024/05/08)
    This is the first draft of the Model Spec, a document that specifies desired behavior for our models in the OpenAI API and ChatGPT. It includes a set of core objectives, as well as guidance on how to deal with conflicting objectives or instructions.

    Our intention is to use the Model Spec as guidelines for researchers and data labelers to create data as part of a technique called reinforcement learning from human feedback (RLHF). We have not yet used the Model Spec in its current form, though parts of it are based on documentation that we have used for RLHF at OpenAI. We are also working on techniques that enable our models to directly learn from the Model Spec.
