IEEE Spectrum Puts R in 6th Place

R has moved up three positions to 6th place on IEEE Spectrum ranking. How long will it be before Julia is on the list?

Shiny Bayesian Updates

Reading Bayesian Computation with R by Jim Albert (Springer, 2009) inspired a fit of enthusiasm. Admittedly, I was on a plane coming back from Amsterdam and looking for distractions. I decided to put together a Shiny app to illustrate successive Bayesian updates. I had not yet seen anything that did this to my satisfaction. I like to think that my results come pretty close.

Lightning on your Twitter Feed

As an aside for a Social Media Automation project I have constructed a bot which uses data from the World Wide Lightning Location Network (WWLLN) to construct daily animated maps of global lightning activity and post them on my Twitter feed. The bot runs remotely and autonomously on an EC2 instance.

Constructing a Word Cloud for ICML 2015

Word clouds have become a bit cliché, but I still think that they have a place in giving a high level overview of the content of a corpus. Here are the steps I took in putting together the word cloud for the International Conference on Machine Learning (2015).

ICML 2015 (Lille, France): Day 3

Selected scribblings from the third day at the International Conference for Machine Learning (ICML 2015) in Lille, France. I’m going out on a limb with some of this, since the more talks I attend, the more acutely aware I become of my limited knowledge of the cutting edge of Machine Learning. Caveat emptor.

ICML 2015 (Lille, France): Day 2

Some notes from the second day at the International Conference for Machine Learning (ICML 2015) in Lille, France. Don’t quote me on any of this because it’s just stuff that I jotted down during the course of the day. Also much of the material discussed in these talks lies outside my field of expertise. Caveat emptor.

ICML 2015 (Lille, France): Day 1 (Tutorials)

Started the day with a run through the early morning streets of Lille. This city seems to wake up late because it was still nice and quiet well after sunrise. Followed by a valiant attempt to sample everything on the buffet breakfast. I’ll know where to focus my attention tomorrow.
