Almost Wednesday — time for some Weekly Picks!
On the applied side, O.R. by the Beach had a mini-series in the form of a Star Trek comic, Understanding Uncertainty looked at entropy and Statistical Modeling, Causal Inference and Social Sciences summed up its philosophy of Bayesian data analysis; for useful reference, Statisfaction collected links to non-profit data science associations.
On the pure side, Gaussiano had an excellent guest post by Clara Grima giving an introduction to computational geometry (translation), The Geomblog remembers the late Bob Morris and his stream algorithms and Gli studenti oggi started a socratic mini–series on Greek Geometry (translations 1,2,3,4).
On the general research side, Doron Zeilberger shared an opinion about Grant proposals, Piece of Mind criticized NSERC’s evidence-based-decision-making as decision-based-evidence-making and The AMS Grad Student Blog shared an insightful post on gender, race and sexuality in Mathematics (they are also looking for new writers).
