For any $$0 < \epsilon < 1$$ and any integer $$n$$, let $$k$$ be a positive integer such that $$k \geq 4(\epsilon^2/2 - \epsilon^3/3)^{-1}\log(n)$$. Then for any set $$V$$ of $$n$$ points in $$\mathbb{R}^d$$, there is a map $$f : \mathbb{R}^d \to \mathbb{R}^k$$ such that for all $$u, v \in V$$, ...

This week I got to present at CMCL 2014, a workshop on computational models of language-related cognition, i.e. processing, acquisition, discourse representation, and so on. My talk was about the connection between Stabler's ...

In contrast to entropy, which increases monotonically, the “complexity” or “interestingness” of closed systems seems intuitively to increase at first and then decrease as equilibrium is approached. For example, our universe lacked complex structures at the Big Bang and will also lack them after ...
