Short and sweet [Personal PhD Update #3.3]

This update is going to be super short as I need to head out to the airport in 10 minutes for a 10 day vacation trekking in Patagonia and I am not taking my laptop with me. I can’t remember the last time I went somewhere without my laptop. It probably was 6 years ago (for another trekking trip)!

Also I am so overdue with an update, that I can’t afford to wait another 10 days 🙂
Here it is:
  • 45 day streak on Duolingo and Memrise apps to learn Spanish
  • Finished up to Lesson 4 (incl.) of Udacity’s Intro to Descriptive Stats Course.
  • Continuing on the stats theme, I finished reading book  Superforecasting: The Art and Science of Prediction by Philip E. Tetlock and Dan Gardner
  • Watched videos from Weeks 1 and 2 of Coursera’s course on Natural Language Processing (this wasn’t part of planned curriculum, but a coworker wanted to study it so we decided to join forces).
  • Read another chapter (chap 13) from Deep Learning book.
That’s all for now and maybe next time I will write about how to study on the go. (I have some reading material with me!)
