I’m an extrophysicist and datanomer. An ex-astrophysicst and data scientist. The purpose of this blog is to quietly converse with myself, because a pathology becomes a charming eccentricity, when done publicly. Rigth?

But really I just enjoy learning about the Universe. Here is a non-exhaustive list of things, I’m interested in and might discuss in one form or another on the blog:

  • Artificial Intelligence – both narrow and general
  • Probability theory, statistics, bayesian epistemology
  • Machine learning and data science
  • Physics & Cosmology
  • Rationality
  • Decision and game theory
  • Effective altruism
  • Economics, finance, econometrics, econophysics
  • Cognitive sciences, neuropsychology
  • Genetics
  • Philosophy and history of science – particularly physics and statistics
  • Linguistics
  • Distributed systems
  • Complex systems, chaos
  • Literature, poetry, music… and their relationship to science
  • Mindfulness and meditation
  • Meta-ethics – particularly of the consequentialist/utilitarian kind
  • Learning and education
  • and too many other things….

And I’m trying to learn about writing. By doing it.

Albrecht Dürer, Melancholia
