(This article is now a chapter of my github proto-book Bayesuvius)
Simpson's paradox is a recurring nightmare for all statisticians overseeing a clinical trial for a medicine. It is possible that if they leave out a certain "confounding" variable from a study, the study's conclusion on whether a medicine is effective or not, might be, without measuring that confounding variable, the opposite of what it would have been had that variable been measured. Statisticians have to enlist expert…
I just uploaded a new chapter to my github proto-book "Bayesuvius". This chapter deals with Reinforcement Learning (RL) done right, i.e., with Bayesian Networks :)
My chapter is heavily based on the excellent course notes for CS 285 taught at UC Berkeley by Prof. Sergey Levine. All I did was to translate some of those lectures into B net lingo.
During a recent conversation that I had on LinkedIn with some very smart Machine Learning experts, the experts opined that the fields…Continue
Today I uploaded to github the first version of my book “QC Paulinesia” about Quantum Computing. The title is a play on the surname of the famous quantum scientist Wolfgang Pauli and the word "Polynesia". The book is based on a paper with the same name that I wrote in 2004.Continue
Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) software is software for producing forgeries and imitations of data (aka synthetic data, fake data). Human beings have been making fakes, with good or evil intent, of almost everything they possibly can, since the beginning of the human race. Thus, perhaps not too surprisingly, GAN software has been widely used since it was first proposed in this amazingly recent 2014 paper. To gauge how widely GAN software has been used so far, see, for example, this…Continue
