Getting a visa to France should be as easy as possible for very talented scientists and engineers from everywhere in the 🌍 I'm super thankful to the teams at the 🇫🇷 Ministry for Foreign affairs (in particular from the cabinets of @franckriester,@cedric_o) for helping us on this

When we’ll have self-driving cars everywhere, will I still make these small signs with my hands to discuss who should be going first? Probably the most friendly and empathetic part of driving, cycling, walking. I’d miss it.

To make the implicit explicit: I strongly believe we should ask students (and all researchers) to optimize quality over quantity. But we can't honestly do that at the same time our orgs tweet "we have 1000 NeurIPS papers." Let's normalize not caring about counts *EVERYWHERE*.

On a related note, (phenomenal) EfficientZero paper took 5 months until release like many other NeurIPS submissions, which was a loss. We should discuss, as a community, ways to make it possible or incentivize to rapidly share paper/code/dataset/model from academia and industry.
