On clustering and "art"

There are graphs, graph theory and there are graphs displaying graph theory. Like in this blog post. We start with all our emails in tiny vicinity around ourselves (0,0) and let our email universe ignite. Small bang in our ultimate big bang. Sometimes, we want to compare two clusters of our email conversations
Sometimes, we want to see all our emails and how connected they are
Sometimes, we want to understand the clusters
Sometimes, we just want to see the complexity of our communication
And sometimes, we want to see how it all might have happened
Till next time, when we go beyond 2D.

My two favorite ones were S7172 - AUTONOMOUS DRONE NAVIGATION WITH DEEP LEARNING (cool potential applications) and S7634 - BUILD A NEURAL TRANSLATION SYSTEM FROM SCRATCH WITH PYTORCH (amazing what one person can do by himself), but I was visiting only for one day.

Still a way to go to match 8k cores of AMD Radeon Pro Duo. I know it's not only about count of GPU cores, but also how fast can these cores access and work with memory and I also understand CUDA language is further th…

Random things around us

Today, I went through my iPhone and realized I have quite a good collection of "weird" things I took pictures of within last two years. Some of the things so endlessly weird, they become either cute, funny or ... This was found in Myrtle Edwards park in Seattle. So simple, so weird, so true:

This one was taken somewhere on i-90 after some hike. One of the cutest love letters I ever read displayed publicly:

From a book. Somewhat funny:

Endless truth found in San Diego:

It does not really matter what you imagine, just imagine something and go for it. Isn't that life about? Central Park NYC:

This made me giggle (somewhere in NYC). Quite a solid message:

This was a good read in my favorite spot in NYC (Highline park):

This guy was chilling in Carmel-By-The-Sea:

And this is from my recent invited visit to Microsoft in San Francisco:
