ItsNear's blog

By ItsNear, history, 6 months ago, In English,

Hi,

Three days ago I wrote a big blog post about how we trying to teach machines to code (and in doing so bring the Singularity closer, since, you know, It's Near).

In this post I want to remind you that we pay people who help us annotate data from competitive programming archives, on average $12/hour.

If you are interested, the platform is here:

https://r-nn.com

This is super convenient for people who practice for ICPC and can't have a full-time job.

Want to help in some other way? May be you know some competitive programming websites on which the solutions are public, like on CodeForces? Please share them with us.

Or may be you were actively solving problems on one of the sites with solutions kept private, and would not mind sharing your account with us? That would also help tremendously!

Let's bring the Singularity closer together!

    См. папки с именами, начинающимися на North_America_, условия здесь — штук 120.

    Ещё решения с uva — штук 150, ссылки на условия, я так понял, получить можно только на uHunt.

    В соседней папке лежит и какая-то малость с timus — это разберётесь.

Sorry to be skeptical, but can anyone confirm if this site does actually pay out? I am cautious of giving my paypal.

    Yes, some PDFs are evidently missing. There's a button on the left that says "Can't download PDF" or something along the lines, just use it to skip

    Less than 24 hours.

    There are no pending payments right now, so if you redeemed points and haven't received the payment, you shall reach out to me (via personal message here, for example) and send me your login in the system so that I can check.

    For people in China, Paypal is not used that often. I can't spend my money earned :( So I hope to add more payment options(Credit Cards,Alipay,Wechat) :) But it's ok if you don't

Could you please allow users to edit the summaries after they have submitted them? I sometimes realize that i forgot to paste several test cases in the problem right after submission. Of course, i need to be more careful and so on.., but i do not think it is actually difficult to add such functionality to the user interface, and i believe that the quality of summaries may benefit a bit from this.

By the way, why do imperative summaries cost less than summaries from pdf? I believe that it is at least as hard as regular summaries from most pdf files and definitely more time consuming in most cases. In this case you need not only to summarize the problem, but also read several codes which are not really well-written in most cases :((

By the way, editorals include some good pretty formal imperative summaries for such problems, so i belive it would be quite logical to include such links into the problems page on https://r-nn.com.

Are we supposed to give Input and output formats in the summary?
