I wanted to try out the Manifold Loot box feature, which caused me to bet in my own market here. This was not intentional. I would not recommend the loot box feature for this reason.

If T5-Large is current SOTA then the benchmark is artificially lower because no one is actually trying.

@vluzko Can you expand on that?

DanMan314 avatar
Danpredicts NO

@vluzko ironically that's why I bought NO - even if there's a model that beats it there's no guarantee it's submitted.

vluzko avatar
Vincent Luczkowpredicts YES

@PatrickDelaney T5 sucks, it's like three generations behind. Which means no one is running their new models on this benchmark. If you ran got 3.5 on this it would probably resolve, never mind 4.

PatrickDelaney avatar
Patrick Delaney

@vluzko have other models been run against other similar "meaning of words" benchmarks to support your claim?

PatrickDelaney avatar
Patrick Delaney

@vluzko what is got 3.5? You mean gpt 3.5? Autocorrect?

DanMan314 avatar
Danpredicts NO

@PatrickDelaney Do you know of any other "meaning of words" benchmarks we could check? I think the main insight here is that the last non-T5 submission to that leaderboard was almost 2 years ago, so a bet on this market might be more about the chance that researchers choose to submit their model than it is about the overall state of AI "meaning" understanding.

vluzko avatar
Vincent Luczkowpredicts YES

@PatrickDelaney yeah gpt 3.5. stupid autocorrect

PatrickDelaney avatar
Patrick Delaney

@DanStoyell Yes, you are absolutely right. There's a, "map vs. territory," problem here, I recognize that. So I could either 1. Change this market if we can find a better, more active leaderboard on the same topic, or 2. Create another market on that more active benchmark or 3. People might still like to speculate on AllenAI, since it seems to be the highest SEO ranked leaderboard for now, and with the idea that there's potentially more money being focused on AI in general, people might start piling into leaderboards more now...?

I am really open to suggestions.

@DanStoyell Why do you think this market is trading at 66% as opposed to closer to NO, where you have bet at this point? Is there some special knowledge that you may not have or are people speculating, not looking as deeply into what the metric is as you are at this point?

DanMan314 avatar
Danpredicts NO

@PatrickDelaney I don't really feel like I have super special insight, I'm mostly going off the extrapolated rate of improvement over the last 2 years combined with the lack of submissions. 66% does feel quite high to me given that, but I'm not betting very much because it wouldn't really surprise me at all if a submission did come along that fit the criteria.

DanMan314 avatar
Danpredicts NO

@PatrickDelaney I did briefly Google for a more active leaderboard but didn't see anything obvious. Making a market that objectively reflects the actual problem you're trying to get at is definitely very hard.

PatrickDelaney avatar
Patrick Delaney

@DanStoyell Yeah if you can think of anything else please let me know.

@DanStoyell I had forgot I put together this market as a place to bookmark more leaderboards as they come up, as well as any AI institutions that may have leaderboards that I'm not aware of yet (e.g. need to search those sites more). I know there are also one-off leaderboards out there which I have seen, maintained by a single small group of researchers. Overall I am dedicated to carving out more markets to try to build a hopefully more accurate snapshot of where AI is going beyond a lot of the speculative sci-fi nonsense which dominates the conversation right now. After having read more about Google Big Bench, it's really a collection of a ton of different separate benchmarks, similar to AllenAI, but much of them seem to not have public submissions displayed within the repo yet.

@DanStoyell So over time, as I comb through these, I might find a better answer to our question.
