There are now quite a few blog posts on the NIPS experiment, I just wanted to put a place together where I could link to them all. It’s a great set of posts from community mainstays, newcomers and those outside our research fields.
Just as a reminder, Corinna and I were extremely open about the entire review process, with a series of posts about how we engaging the reviewers and processing the data. All that background can be found through a separate post here.
At the time of writing there is also still quite a lot of twitter traffic on the experiment.
List of Blog Posts
- Eric Price’s original blog which seemed to have the largest impact in making the world aware of the experiment.
- John Langford, long time ML blogger has his say on the ACM site.
- Lance Fortnow from the computational complexity community adds his thoughts.
- Bert Huang, who was actually on the program committee gives his perspective.
- A really early post from Aaron Defazio was one of the authors of a duplicated paper. He writes about his experience from before the results were widely known.
- The experiment triggers a set of broader musings on peer review from popsci.
- Boaz Barak, who has experience of chairing FOCS, a major CS Theory conference, brings his perspective here.
- Yisong Yue gives the perspective of one of the attendees.
What an exciting series of posts and perspectives!
For those of you that couldn’t make the conference, here’s what it looked like.
And that’s just one of 5 or six poster rows!
