In a continuation of my machine learning series, today I will discuss a more cutting-edge topic in machine learning that has significant social import: fairness. In the modern era, there is significant momentum towards using machine learning techniques with the plethora of available data to make key decisions affecting many

Despite having studied mathematics and computer science for quite some time now, I am still amazed to this day at how the two fields can intersect in profound and unexpected ways. This post expounds upon one such case, examining how solving a seemingly simple enumeration problem algorithmically convolves interesting mathematical

Back in my high school linear algebra class, I briefly ran into a construct known as the Fibonacci Q-Matrix. At this point I had not discovered recurrences and was pretty astonished that this magical matrix power could produce values of the Fibonacci sequence. For casual readers, a basic knowledge of

I've been working on a couple of side projects recently, so I haven't had much time to do any math or CS related blog posts. However, in my research for a planned side-project involving Self Organizing Maps, I came upon a concept I had seen once before a long time

I always find it super cool when recognizing key parallels between different branches of mathematics serendipitously. It allows me to employ techniques I have learned in other classes to derive valuable insight in a new topic, which sometimes (not always) makes the learning a bit easier. Today I will discuss
