Reading The Morning Paper

You may already know, but there’s a person out there on the Internet making a lot of readingĀ for you. They put out this publication (nearly) daily, which is called The Morning Paper. The eponymous “paper” is a computer science paper, and each report is a walk-through of its contents.

Brilliant stuff, and most of it pushes my mind in some direction. Learning and such is a lot about filling the mind with associations. For me.

Things I learned about during the last fortnight: guiding machine learning using assisted labelling techniques that parse natural language; a really fast JSON filter called Sparser; something about memory management & local reasoning in an upcoming OCaml memory management implementation. Tons of stuff, mostly-digested, for your scanning pleasure.

I enjoy scanning this. Some of it makes me dig out explanations and other thing are possible to scan along, for the thrill of it.
