Exciting problems tend to have some hierarchical depth of complexity. Intelligent problem solving, then, requires mechanisms to abstract to a suitable level of complexity, given the current requirements & available resources.
I’m a data scientist so in my case, this applies to testing theories captured in data — however, think of this as a specific instance of a broader problem-solving approach.
Here I provide a paradigm for handling complexity through modular design.
As a component of my Masters degree I’m studying how individuals are able to learn under uncertainty. To achieve this we’re designing a mathematical construct to examine the…
Chemical reactions and phase transformations underpin phenomena ranging from cosmological processes, to the emergence of life on Earth, to modern technologies and are therefore of tremendous interest for both basic and applied sciences.
Here I provide a review of recent advancements in the intersection between computational mathematics, material science & chemical engineering.
This study made a multitude of notable contributions:
Fast Fourier Transforms were used to label the data in an automated & reliable manner.
Deep learning was used to map breeches in lattice periodicity to atomic defects in Mo-doped WS2 — effectively identifying atomic defects in the data.
Electron microscopy — a method of generated nanoscale and mesoscale imagining by capturing how electrons interact with materials — is becoming increasingly powerful.
EM hosts a series of important applications:
Quality of materials ensuring that they are fit for purpose, preventing material failure, and designing new materials. Playing an essential role in aerospace, electronics, chemistry, and energy.
Detailed topographical information is vital to developing…
Come as you are,
Go when you please.
Should I wonder how & when you might leave?
Or focus on how you differ from me?
Or try to change you, meticulously?
Forget all of that, & thank you, for now
The laughs. & quarrels. The jokes you allow
Change is the only constant, we know
One day soon, we won’t exchange “hello’s”
No matter for this! This moment? I’ll savour!
For the contrast in life, is where we find flavour.
Can individual investors expect high yield on short term equity portfolios?
Suppose you want to build a sound investment portfolio. Suppose, further, that you’ve settled on a long-term strategy. A problem arises:
How should short term funds be handled?
Short-term investment requirements are often disjoint from their long-term counterparts. Short term investment often acts to:
Here I consider the viability of adopting a long term passive diversified portfolio approach to short term asset allocation. Backed by a statistical enquiry to assess performance in the expectation.
∞ A stochastic process that parameterize an uncountably infinite set of random variables - to solve for happiness.
Sometimes existence feels deplorable, other times, bliss. We cannot improve what we do not measure — so why not reverse engineer human emotion?
Is it possible to define happiness as a set of non-linear basis functions that capture societal interaction effects?
Before we can capture any natural phenomena — which is infinitely complex — by some statistical framework we need to formalize the search space (imposing simplifying constraints). …
A comical guide to Reinforcement Learning; Bayesian Statistical Updating & the Exploration vs Exploitation Paradigm.
So you’re the kid who got 100 for every math & physics test, you’ve read Hagel, you compose like Bach, you think in machine code, life is easy, thinking is fast (& slow), tasks are simple.
But there’s a problem… Girls don’t seem to care?!
So, if you’re growing tired of winning the olympiads but not having anyone to celebrate with :( ... At last! I have the answer for you my present-day progressive Picasso.
So ponder no longer my postmodern Pascal. Here’s how we…
Run in the forest.
Faster & further than you thought you could.
Sprint until your legs give way, you slip and fall & your knees bleed. Look around & realize where you are — in the forest, alone. And the forest doesn’t care about your bloody knees — so you’ll get up & run again.
Without your knowing, nor your consent, the world of things will recede around you & you’ll be left with nothing but the metaphysics of being.
Your mind & heart race as fast as blood pumps through your veins. Now you feel…
