On the emergence of visual cortex receptive field properties
I have always found the story of the development of our understanding of the visual cortex fascinating. Within a span of four decades we went from "The visual neurons do what?" to "That's exactly what we would do if we were to engineer a visual system." to...

I find myself coming back to the same few pictures when teaching basic machine learning concepts. This is a list I find most illuminating. Any suggestions that gave you some a-ha moments?

Machine learning in 5 pictures
I find myself coming back to the same few pictures when explaining machine learning concepts. Below is a representative list. Why lower training error is not always a good thing: ESL Figure 2.11. Test and training error as a function of model complexity. I...

Our Mathematical Universe by Max Tegmark
Consider a computer simulation of a mini universe, a universe complex enough to give rise to sentient beings. As Greg Egan points out in Permutation City , (and as is obvious to anybody who has played The Sims ), the subjective flow of time in the simulate...

The main design goal of dlib is to make C programming as practical and concise as Perl, and yet to retain its fine grained control over memory use. For years I have been starting my research projects in Perl, because I can get results quickly. Then at some point I rewrite everything in C, because I run out of memory (I usually work with large statistical models). The tiny memory overheads for each string, array, hash, or object add up when you have billions of them. Yet, I cringe at the prospect of expressing the same ideas in C using many more lines of code than Perl. Why should that be the case?
