Algorithms, Writing papers, Python, and classes.

I’ve been so busy that I have not had much time to write anything in a while.

This quarter I’m taking Swim conditioning, Graduate research, “CS 540 – Algorithms for Biological Data Analysis”.

I’m also taking some Coursera courses in security and machine learning as a review.

I particularly like the machine learning course so far. This is the first time I’ve used IPython Notebook which I highly recommend. It is included with Anaconda . The course also introduced me to Graphlab’s SFrame which I’m very impressed by.

In just a few lines of code, I was able to create and test a regression model from a file and display it on a very nice graph.

I’m also the teaching assistant for CS 528 – Advanced Data Structures and Algorithms. I’m teaching the labs and grading the homework. Last Thursday I went over dictionaries, lists, functions (including lambda functions which I think are awesome) and discussed python’s string functions which will be needed for next weeks homework.

I’ve been working on getting a paper finished that I plan to submit to an international this month.
