    1. I major in English literature in University I major in interpreting you went to gr for my master degree I think more than 100 people applied and eight students were admit how many people finally passed the final exam two two two wow

      中間這位受訪的台灣人,父母在她英文學習上下重本投資,從小讀雙語幼稚園,課後上雙語補習班,中學上雙語私校,大學唸英語系,研究所唸了師大口譯所,錄取八名口譯組學生,最後專業考試還是唯一考過的兩人之一。從這些事實看來,她的英語應當可謂萬中選一,可是爲什麼英語發音還是有問題?

      我發現,評斷英語發音好壞,其實有一個巧妙的方法:讓AI機器語音識別轉寫文字,看文字是什麼。很多時候,雖有稍微的口音,機器仍然辨認正確,產出的英文是正確的。但當一個字的發音偏誤到更像另一個字時,機器就毫不客氣,產生另一個字了。發現語音辨識常有這種「誤植另一字」問題是,就表示英語發音有問題。

      AI機器輔助偵測辨識英語發音問題法,前提當然是,文字不能再經人工校正,必須是原始的結果。例如,本影片有兩個英文字幕,一個是後製在螢幕上的那個,那是人工校正過的,一個是YouTube自動生產的(也可透過Hypothesis顯示),我們要看的是後者。這個機器字幕在前4分鐘的內容中,指出她英語發音上至少兩個錯誤,不知各位有沒有光從聽就能察覺到?

    1. But when Diller’s jokes came up for transcription last week, “they are going like gangbusters,” says Meghan Ferriter, project coordinator. “I think we actually gained about 115 new volunteers in one day.”

      Meghan Ferriter, a project coordinator at the Smithsonian Institution, claimed that the transcription of Phyllis Diller's gag file helped the Smithsonian Transcription Center gain 115 volunteers in a single day.

      I wasn’t really thinking about this until sometime in the ’90s when I got an email from someone who said, “Can you tell me if this is the correct meaning of the Liskov substitution principle?” So that was the first time I had any idea that there was such a thing, that this name had developed.[...] I discovered there were lots and lots of people on the Internet having arguments about what the Liskov substitution principle meant.

      I used to feel kind of jealous of the electrical engineers because I thought, “At least they have these components and they connect them by wires, and that forces you to really focus on what those wires are.” Whereas software was so plastic that people used to design without thinking much about those wires, and so then they would end up with this huge mess of interconnections between the pieces of the program, and that was a big problem.

    1. Review coordinated by Life Science Editors

      Reviewed by: Dr. Helen Pickersgill, Life Science Editors

      Potential Conflicts of Interest: None

      Impact Point: Transcription factors may mediate the release of specific genes in extracellular vesicles that could be taken up by other cells and directly influence their behaviour.

      Background: Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are nanoscale, membrane-bound vesicles containing proteins, nucleic acids and lipids that are released by most cell types. Originally thought of as a cell waste disposal mechanism, they have since been rebranded as a means of intercellular communication, both short and long range, (like a cellular postal service), and can, for example, modify gene expression and function in recipient cells via the transfer of specific RNAs (DOI: 10.1038/s41580-020-0251-y). One interesting function for EVs was the recent discovery that antigen presenting cells (APCs) could donate telomeres via EVs to recipient T cells and rescue them from senescence (DOI: 10.1038/s41556-022-00991-z).

      Given EVs contain a wide variety of cargos derived from the secreting cells, which have been extensively profiled (e.g., DOI: 10.1016/j.cell.2020.07.009) they are particularly interesting as sources of biomarkers for diagnosing diseases such as cancer (e.g., DOI: 10.1038/s12276-019-0219-1). We might also be able to use them as stable delivery mechanisms for controlling cell behaviour or targeting therapeutics/diagnostics.

      We know quite a bit about how RNAs and proteins are selected for secretion by EVs (mediated by the autophagy protein LC3: e.g., DOIs: 10.1080/15548627.2020.1756557; 10.1038/s41556-019-0450-y). But little is known about DNA. DNA presents a particular challenge as it is packed up into the nucleus. This is also particularly important to understand in the context of horizontal gene transfer, i.e., passing functional genes between cells.

      Main question: How does a cell ‘select’ specific DNA cargo from the nucleus and enable it to be released by EVs?

      The advance: They discover that a transcription factor (FOXM1) plays a central role in mediating DNA release in EVs.

      Results: • FOXM1 and LC3 (autophagy protein) colocalize and interact in cultured cells (coIP endogenous and exogenous, EMSA, immunostaining and identify an FOXM1-binding domain mutant). • FOXM1, LC3 and DNA colocalise in the cytoplasm in cultured cells, which increases upon starvation-induced autophagy (immunofluorescence). • FOXM1 and LC3 are found in EVs released from cultured cells (Western blot). • 15,544 DNA identified in EVs released from cultured cells (evDNA sequencing), of which 25 overlapped with DNA loci binding FOXM1 (ChIP). • FOXM1-bound nuclear DNA is transported to the cytoplasm upon induction of autophagy and is released in EVs in cultured cells (knock-in tagged chromatin with CRISPR-cas9, IF and PCR). This is dependent on FOXM1 (knock-out in cultured cells).

      Significance: Transcription factors display strong DNA binding specificity and so are ideal candidates for directing specific genes into EVs for potential transfer to recipient cells.

      Remaining questions/points: Care needs to be taken with regard to purification of EVs. Are the FOXM1-DNAs in the EVs functional in recipient cells? Is the DNA being actively ‘selected’ for an intercellular signalling purpose or is this just random degradation? Is it all FOXM1 bound DNA that has the potential to be trafficked to EVs or just a subset? Do other transcription factors have the same function or is it specific to this protein/family? Does this mechanism occur in other contexts (e.g., in vivo, under disease conditions).

      I would feel a little bit sad, but at the same time, this is a pattern I've seen happen over and over again. And especially with these big ideas about computing and self-expression and things like that [...] people start with these huge, huge ideas, but I think that they are so different--the diff is so much between where society is now and what some of these people are thinking about--that the most that can be absorbed at one time is like one unit--one meme--from that whole big vision. So, we're just gonna take like one small step at a time, and [...] you kind of just have to accept that, you know, that's success.

    1. But Google also uses optical character recognition to produce a second version, for its search engine to use, and this double process has some quirks. In a scriptorium lit by the sun, a scribe could mistakenly transcribe a “u” as an “n,” or vice versa. Curiously, the computer makes the same mistake. If you enter qualitas—an important term in medieval philosophy—into Google Book Search, you’ll find almost two thousand appearances. But if you enter “qnalitas” you’ll be rewarded with more than five hundred references that you wouldn’t necessarily have found.

      I wonder how much Captcha technology may have helped to remedy this in the intervening years?

      This is the process of a complementary mRNA copy of a single gene on the DNA that is created in the nucleus. The mRNA is smaller than the DNA so it can carry the genetic code into the ribosome and into the cytoplasm that enables the protein creation.

      Les logiciels de reconnaissance d'écriture manuscrite sont désormais beaucoup plus performants. Voir en particulier le logiciel Transkribus ( http://read.transkribus.eu ), que nous avons testé avec l'écriture de Foucault, particulièrement difficile à lire (voir le compte rendu des tests : https://jdmdh.episciences.org/5218).
