How did you feed the data into the model and get predictions? Was there a prompt and then you got the model's answer? Then you got the logits from the API? What was the prompt?

Thank you for working on this Joseph!

Thank you! Could you please provide more context? I don't know what 'E' you're referring to.

That's a lot of things done, congratulations!

That's very cool, maybe I should try to do that for important talks. Though I suppose almost always you have slide aid, so it may not be worth the time investment.

Maybe being a guslar is not so different from telling a joke 2294 lines long

That's a very good point! I think the level of ability required is different but it seems right.

The guslar's songs are (and were of course already in the 1930-1950s) also printed, so the analogy may be closer than you thought.

Is there a reason I should want to?

I don't know, I can't tell you that. If I had to choose I also strongly prefer literacy.

But I didn't know there was a tradeoff there! I thought literacy was basically unambiguously positive -- whereas now I think it is net highly positive.

Also I strongly agree with frontier64 that the skill that is lost is rough memorization + live composition, which is a little different.

It's definitely not exact memorization, but it's almost more impressive than that, it's rough memorization + composition to fit the format.

They memorize the story, with particular names; and then sing it with consitent decasyllabic metre and rhyme. Here's an example song transcribed with its recording: Ropstvo Janković Stojana (The Captivity of Janković Stojan)

Folks generally don't need polyamory to enjoy this benefit, but I'm glad you get it from that!
