Weew what a morning. Got a bunch of misc tasks out of the way, and now have some time to think. Did finish Entangled Life which was great. Didn't realize how close I was to the end of the book, but sweet.

I really only put out a couple of tasks out for today.

If these go quickly, the podcast The Self Employment Meta-Game has been interesting so far. It also had a question which is worth examining.

Another thing that we should get done before this one is to write about where we are with the computer project.


Comes down to a few things.

ML Learning

Looking to tackle learning in a few ways.

As a beginner it might be good to start basic too, with stuff like

I think it makes sense to start with labelers. So the projects for this seem to be relatively straightforward and obvious

Once we have the labelers down (data generation), I think it will then be important to understand how we can actually access the data.

So this will probably need to be some kind of transformer based language model similar to GPT-3.

Before diving into any of this I think we should find some course sylibi and see what they want me to read. Let's take a look at UCSD's grad courses.

[[ML Learning Notes]]

Coming from coursera

Basically given some input (experience, sense data) provide some output, and measure performance of output

Supervised Learning

Classification could be like assigning boolean value to something

Regression is more like trying to assign numerical value

Unsupervised Learning

Ideally this is what I want.

Clustering Algorithms, basically taking data and clustering them based on likeness in some way. TODO

How can we cluster computer data?

Interesting note of two recordings and separating out languages. This could be similar to speaker recognition

Compelling Story of My Life

Well damn, so far we are doing pretty damn good. We quit our job. And we are going out to do whatever we want. I definitely don't want that to end anytime soon. Really I would love to continue it indefinitely. However at some point it will need to make some level of money in some capacity. What that capacity is? Not sure. I do want to own a home. But I want to be in a place where the home doesn't hold me down, but is more just a base where I operate from. Want to have a beautiful wife and a couple of kids at some point relatively soon too. In 5 years probably. Right around 30 or a little past. If I have to go back to work, I want to maintain a high level of independence while still being able to pay the bills. If this means freelancing maybe that's what I need to do. I just want to continue to get good at climbing. But ultimately I want to be in a place where I have my hands in a ton of different aspects able to help influence direction on a global scale. Only able to do this with the help of a lot of other people. ego speaking? maybe.


During the bike ride there was a few interesting things to come of the podcasts. Well one more obvious thing is that for the podcasts we can just transcribe an absolute fuck ton. Want to make this convienient for something like Basically how do you make audio more transparent? See the big themes at once and then all the text there with audio. Yes
