In our study, we show how a language model, trained simply to predict a masked (hidden) amino acid in a protein sequence, recovers high-level structural and functional properties of proteins.

@robinsloan @LMSacasas excellent analysis. tangentially: a similar issue of re-introducing immediacy has caused AI issues when the GOFAI WordNet ontology is repurposed for image labels. "whore" as a word is inert and thing-like, but when paired with an image becomes problematic. https://t.co/IDoUkIe0W7
