Re: Random photo's

If you suggest that I'm an expert in ML, that's very nice of you, but I'm just a humble statistician and mathematical modeller - and fiercely against NN, especially DN (a.k.a.

Sigh, but what 37 years!
6t21And what a beautiful death - in th name of science. Political and religious authority in France fell as their more enlightened subjects (including Guillotin) strated to discover that we are all - from a sea polyp to a cat jumping on my keyboard, to a man - made of dust.

Re: Your rants here

Spaniards often have thick and oily skin which doesn't show wrinkles for long... but with her thinner skin she's got that beautiful slim pointy nose instead. Sigh. If only CRISPR was more advanced... Speaking of Bezos, I wonder why he didn't invest in research on it.

Re: Your rants here

Is there an age restriction on friends? Crain looks old for his age (53), indeed, though. The actress (not known to me) looks old for 33 too. Very wrinkled! https://m.media-amazon.com/images/M/MV5BMWM3MDMzNjMtODM5Ny00YmY0LWJhNzQtNTE1ZDNlNjllNDQ0XkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyODkzNTgxMDg@._V1_UY1200_CR585,0,630,120...

Re: A Frequentist and a Bayesian walk into a bar…

I'd rather go for "Have you been here before"? It obviously depends on the context, though. And if you get down to the business, use confidence intervals instead of a p-value.

Female (spayed), I think. The surgery is ovariohysterectomy (removal of uterus and ovaries). As for the sexual identity, I think you should let your dog decide.
