The idea that new code is better than old is patently absurd. Old code has been used. It has been tested. Lots of bugs have been found, and they’ve been fixed. @email@example.com
I've been head deep into the world of autoregressive hidden Markov models at work. It's brought me all over the place to Dirichlet processes, mixture models, and more. The more I read, the more I know I don't know about this part of the modelling world. Multiple times my mental models have had to be revised. My work is fun, this is a rare privilege!
The potato paradox is a mathematical calculation that has a counter-intuitive result.
"You have 100kg of potatoes, which are 99% water by weight. You let them dehydrate until they're 98% water. How much do they weigh now?"
The surprising answer is 50kg
What do Fermi estimation and the principled construction of Bayesian priors have in common? I try to explore the idea in my latest blog post: https://ericmjl.github.io/blog/2020/10/15/fermi-estimation-and-bayesian-priors/
Qri is ultimately about collaborating on datasets, and the command line is a great place to start as it shows off a lot of what qri can do:
Unpopular view: Data scientists should be more end-to-end.
While this is frowned upon (too generalist!), I've seen it lead to more context, faster iteration, greater innovation—more value, faster.
