I am a Computer Science(s) graduate student at University of Wisconsin – Madison.
I consistently find myself dwelling on these topics:
The capacity for computers to make us smarter—through optimization, machine learning, and AI.
The capacity for computers to make us stupider—through distraction and shallow thinking.
Probability, statistics, and information theory.
I have also dabbled in programming languages research.
I studied math and physics as an undergrad. This background has its benefits, though I’ve had a lot of catching up to do in CS.
I hope this blog evolves into something useful and interesting.
