Re: Linkedin me up Scotty!

No shortage of personal shrinks

Ik combineer coaching met mijn expertise en ervaring als psycholoog. Waardoor ik diepte-coaching kan leveren.
Daarmee kan ik in korte tijd mensen zichzelf nog beter leren kennen. En effectiever blokkades opruimen, in werk en ook persoonlijk.

Half-time score

Brexit was a typically English revolution – one that left the elites unharmed

C++23

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C%2B%2B23

I would say; no big new features, rather fixes and extra thingies added to C++20.

Re: Philosophy of Mathematics

Newton and Euler were the same person?? The acorn doesn’t fall from the tree. But Lagrange is closer. Nature is continuous, but the human brain is discrete. Example 1. Gradient descent (discrete), starting point for ML? [$]k = 1,2,3[$] 2. Continuous realisation of 1. [$]0 \lt t \lt \infty[$]

Re: Philosophy of Mathematics

We've all learned (discrete) Newton's method in kindergarten

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newton%27s_method

It is an iterative method and the nasty surprise is that it is the Euler method!

I suppose that the old-timers didn't have recourse to ODE solvers? Same with Cauchy's gradient descent.

I suspect his "Goodbye" will be followed by "And another thing..."
I don't think that word means what he thinks it means.
he's a bit like Colombo minus the humour.

Re: Asymptotic behaviour of ODE/PDE (large time)

The more I investigate Gradient Descent (GD) the more I believe ML have opened a can of worms (in their naivety). Invoking Sapir-Whorf, life begins with linear algebra and iterative, i.e. they are looking at the solution. Because algebra is low-hanging fruit. Let's skip the zillion fixes and patches...

Re: Those equatorial Ecuadorians

Fantastic story! United we stand, divided we fall: https://fablesofaesop.com/the-four-oxen-and-the-lion.html Cute. They weren't Irish oxen. Funny, but I was in Soweto and Stanton, Jo'burg 16 June 2006, the 30th anniversary of the murder of Hector Pieterson in 1976 and the start of the Soweto riots....

get with the times, matey. You're not supposed to take it seriously. It's allegorical.
