The Only Three Networking Emails You Need To Know How To Write

The Only Three Networking Emails You Need To Know How To Write | Multilíngues | Scoop.it

It’s helpful to be honest about why you’re reaching out (for example, you’re going through a job search or moving to a new city). It can combat nerves and help the process feel more genuine. In other words, it instantly solves two core issues many people stress about when told to network.

 

That said, as with anything else, you know there’s a difference between being straightforward and being overly blunt. For example, you know to write, "I was thinking of approaching the project from a different angle" over "I hate all of your ideas."

 

Aspiring to find this balance, many people begin networking emails with "Remember me?" or even, "You probably don’t remember me..." After all, why not begin with an honest admission so the other person knows you aren’t being fake? Well, unfortunately, this approach often backfires. While you’re coming from a sincere place, it’s pretty audacious to ask for something from someone whom you’re blatantly admitting you barely know.

Adele Taylor's curator insight, December 5, 2016 3:53 PM

I think this title should be about reaching out to contacts.

As the article implies networking can be scary, and might scare away readers but a good article overall.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, December 5, 2016 9:43 PM
It certainly helps to be upfront, honest and straightforward in writing Networking Emails. We have come a long way from times when it was perhaps expected that letters should run into pages, filled with flowery expression and long sentences. I found the examples in the article really helpful, and am sharing the same for others to read!

O famigerado present perfect e a língua materna como ferramenta de ensino – John Whitlam’s Language Blog

As melhores gramáticas de inglês como língua estrangeira estão escritas em inglês, por nativos de inglês. Isso dificulta a leitura para quem não domina a língua, ou seja, fatalmente, 100% do público-alvo delas, não só porque as explicações, muitas vezes complexas e abstratas, não são escritas no idioma do leitor, mas também porque se baseiam na lógica do pensamento inglês. Mesmo que o usuário brasileiro da gramática entenda o texto do livro, será que consegue compreender os parâmetros e diferenciações expostos, já que sua própria forma de pensar é pautada no português?

Google AI creates ‘Interlingua’

Google AI creates ‘Interlingua’ | Multilíngues | Scoop.it
Using AI to translate across three languages has led to the observation that the AI has created – without direct help – an interlingua: an artificial language that – this case – is constructed to make translation easier, based on richer and broader semantics than are found in any of the natural languages.

Matt Burgess, Google’s AI just created its own universal ‘language

However, the most remarkable feat of the research paper isn’t that an AI can learn to translate languages without being shown examples of them first; it was the fact it used this skill to create its own 'language’. “Visual interpretation of the results shows that these models learn a form of interlingua representation for the multilingual model between all involved language pairs,” the researchers wrote in the paper.

An interlingua is a type of artificial language, which is used to fulfil a purpose. In this case, the interlingua was used within the AI to explain how unseen material could be translated.

“Using a 3-dimensional representation of internal network data, we were able to take a peek into the system as it translated a set of sentences between all possible pairs of the Japanese, Korean, and English languages,” the team’s blogpost continued. The data within the network allowed the team to interpret that the neural network was “encoding something” about the semantics of a sentence rather than comparing phrase-to-phrase translations.

“We interpret this as a sign of existence of an interlingua in the network,” the team said. As a result of the work, the Multilingual Google Neural Machine Translation is now being used across all of Google Translate and the firm said multilingual systems are involved in the translation of 10 of the 16 newest language pairs.

Soon, we may be speaking an interlingua that encompasses English, Swahili, Mandarin, and a hundred other languages. Perhaps we could wire it in such a way that people would innately find more kinship with others, and intuitively follow the golden rule. I propose we call it ‘Ish’, and start teaching the kindergartners.
