  1. An ML based system for improving academic writing w/ grammar checking and alternative phrasing suggestions. Available as an Overleaf program.
  2. Looks like a pretty seamless way to extract the text of news documents. Looks very simple and pretty easy.
  3. It's a superficial and limited analysis but it seems legit.
  4. Turns out, you can't "stretch" your IT band because it is attached to your femur basically all the way along. You can certainly tension it, but it's effectively stapled to the bone and cannot be substantially elongated.
  5. "This paper studies differences in the effect of temperature on cognitive performance by gender in a large controlled lab experiment (N = 543). We study performance in math, verbal and cognitive reflection tasks and find that the effects of temperature vary significantly across men and women. At higher temperatures, women perform better on a math and verbal task while the reverse effect is observed for men. The increase in female performance in response to higher temperature is significantly larger and more precisely estimated than the corresponding decrease in male performance. In contrast to math and verbal tasks, temperature has no impact on a measure of cognitive reflection for either gender. Our findings suggest that gender mixed workplaces may be able to increase productivity by setting the thermostat higher than current standards."
  6. The original paper proving the Gaussian inequality. Check out [v1] of the paper.
  7. Seems like caffeine itself is basically not bad for kids beyond obvious stuff like keeping them from sleeping, suppressing appetite, coming in drinks with tons of sugar, etc.
  8. "The correlations were much lower between Mendeley readers and citation counts for conference papers than for journal articles in Building & Construction Engineering and Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering. Hence, there seem to be disciplinary differences in the usefulness of Mendeley readership counts as impact indicators for conference papers, even between fields for which conferences are important."

  10. Completely bullshit/nonsense lecture that a bunch of professors completely buy and even rate highly! Delivery matters. Content, not so much.
  11. More from Erich Goode on sex with his informants... Good God.
  12. Very nice talk.
  13. Extraordinarily strange way of filming this. Extremely good extemporaneous-seeming speaking. Good/interesting content. Worth the listen.

  16. Myria is a distributed, shared-nothing Big Data management system and Cloud service from the University of Washington. We derive requirements from real users and complex workflows, especially in science.

  18. "Papers We Love is a repository of academic computer science papers and a community who loves reading them." Wait. People do this for /fun/?! ;)
