Relationship between MeTal and Snorkel?

October 8, 2019 at 1:26am
Hi, I'm just starting to learn about Snorkel and have also been reading about the MeTaL work. How does MeTaL differ from Snorkel? I'm giving a talk on Snorkel on Friday, so it'd help me to know! Is MeTaL just a precursor to Snorkel that is now subsumed by it? Thanks! -- Bill

Hi , great question! The matrix completion-style label model algorithm introduced in https://arxiv.org/abs/1810.02840 was first implemented in the MeTaL library, but is now ported into the Snorkel library (which adds lots of additional functionality including new training data operators, an updated API, new tutorials, etc.). Going forward, we strongly recommend that everyone build on top of the main Snorkel library rather than MeTaL. You can find more details here: https://github.com/HazyResearch/metal#project-status
