Pinned toot

Would anybody have any interest in me tooting out cool papers, preprints, preprints?

I'm thinking to replace my lab notebooks with a personal wiki to better tie all my projects and idle thoughts together.

Has anyone else done this? How have you liked the result?

I have been wrecked by a need for explanations to be testable. That theory building without making predictions or having a way to tell if you are wrong is just wasting time.

I think about ICML deadline I need to bite the bullet and really engage with the causality literature gradientinstitute.org/blog/6/

Basically unless I stick to prediction all the high-impact projects on my plate need causality.

Thanks to everyone who joined us in LA today to tell ICANN to stop the sale of the .ORG domain registry to private equity. We had a great rally, and gave the entire board the 34,000 signatures and 700+ organizations that have signed onto the petition to protect .ORGs! t.co/lCWKB3DbmK

I feel really guilty making a shitty joint model, but I only need the conditional distribution to be easy to sample from.

@mikiobraun I'm glad to see you back on this. I really want all of us to migrate off of birdsite.

Anybody else feel like TemplateHaskell makes your code way too brittle?

One interesting way of finding places to use probabilistic programming is look for fields that have developed their own libraries effectively wrapping MCMC

I am new to mastodon and am looking for people in the #writingcommunity

I have successfully migrated off of docker onto podman! I don't know why this makes me so happy but it does!

So this week I learned that the number of nodes in an AST follows a lognormal distribution. This result holds across programming languages.
