Asher Brown Durand’s 𝘒𝘪𝘯𝘥𝘳𝘦𝘥 𝘚𝘱𝘪𝘳𝘪𝘵𝘴 (1849), a classic Transcendentalist painting that puts great emphasis on natural beauty and the meekness of man.

How Transcendentalism can revitalize our society’s love for the environment


Richard Feynman was a master of learning and the patience that deep understanding requires. His depth of knowledge was exactly what made him such a brilliant teacher. US Department of Energy.


Kaggle’s famous Titanic Dataset is a great place for people to begin their journey on applied machine learning.

Applying the Bayes’ Rule to design a classifier in Python from scratch, and applying it on the Titanic Dataset


Technically not the exact type of Naive Bayes Classification I was thinking. // astroML

How we can use elementary probability theory to find Bayes’ Theorem, and how we can use this to create a classifier


In Recursive Least Squares, new points are appearing all the time and we need to adjust our plane to fit that. Multiple Linear Regression // Mathworks

Exploring Recursive Least Squares (RLS) and using the Sherman-Morrison-Woodbury Formula and Python

Using two different strategies rooted in linear algebra to understand the most important formula in dimensionality reduction



Frank Rosenblatt’s beloved perceptron.

What is a perceptron, how the proto-neural network started (and stopped) interest in neural networks, the linear algebra behind them, and how group invariance theorem destroyed them.


The rationale and linear algebra behind Normal Equations, and the calculus as well.
