"We show that, although pop music has evolved continuously, it did so with particular rapidity during three stylistic "revolutions" around 1964, 1983 and 1991. We conclude by discussing how our study points the way to a quantitative science of cultural change."
"The underlying hypotheses of the KS test are intrinsically incompatible with this approach and the test can produce false positives supported by extremely low p-values. This potentially makes the signed KS test a tool of p-hacking, which should be discouraged by replacing it with standard tests such as the t-test and by providing confidence intervals instead of p-values."
Starcode is now part of the standard toolbox of the team and is a key step of the TRIP pipeline. The source code is of course freely available. We have spent a lot of time trying to make it user-friendly, your feedback would be extremely very valuable!
"There are basically two parts of emailing within Python, 1) building the message and 2) opening your server and sending the mail."
"After publishing the initial idea on my blog, several readers suggested to publish the argument with more visibility for the target audience. This gave me the motivation to find the right journal for this and to make the text more accurate and more accessible for biologists. This is my first community-driven publication, and for this reason, I am very proud of it."
"Because I give a fuck!"
That's why I am doing what I do. I give a fuck that everbody gets a chance to learn. I give a fuck that knowledge be shared. I give a fuck that children will live in a better world than ours.
