The effect of Cr impurity to superconductivity in electron-doped BaFe2-xNixAs2Sep 23 2014We use transport and magnetization measurements to study the effect of Cr-doping to the phase diagram of the electron-doped superconducting BaFe2-xNixAs2 iron pnictides. In principle, adding Cr to electron-doped BaFe2-xNixAs2 should be equivalent to the ... More

Improving Text-to-SQL Evaluation MethodologyJun 23 2018To be informative, an evaluation must measure how well systems generalize to realistic unseen data. We identify limitations of and propose improvements to current evaluations of text-to-SQL systems. First, we compare human-generated and automatically ... More
