My name is Dustin Stansbury. I’m a recent(ish) PhD from UC Berkeley. During my graduate studies in theoretical neuroscience I learned a crap load about how the brain and computers perform computations. This blog is essentially an attempt to distill some of the knowledge I’ve gained during my PhD, and continue to gain as a Data Scientist for 8tracks.The content of the blog will be posts about analysis techniques, algorithms, theory, or things I think are cool, exciting, or helpful. I plan for most posts to be based around a source code implementation** of whatever I’m trying to explain (which can potentially be somewhat formal). I have found that making direct connections between theory and implementation is incredibly useful for gaining incite into technical concepts. I hope that you find the blog useful, and any comments, suggestions, or suggested topics are welcome and greatly appreciated.Enjoy!**Implementations will generally be in Julia, because of it’s straight-forward syntax and direct translation from linear algebra and mathematical notation to code. However, I also primarily use python for work, and will likely sprinkle some of python tidbits in here as well.
