3:29 PM | “The Understanding of Pans in 3- to 6-Year-Old Children”
A psychology study with an easily-misunderstood title — “The Understanding of Pans in 3- to 6-Year-Old Children,” — may explain, a little, why young children sometimes watch the same videos over and over again. For anyone who makes videos for children (and of course for parents), this little experiment may be worth a couple of looks…. […]

5:00 AM | Phase Retrieval via Wirtinger Flow: Theory and Algorithms - implementation -
Phase Retrieval via Wirtinger Flow: Theory and Algorithms by Emmanuel Candes, Xiaodong Li, Mahdi SoltanolkotabiWe study the problem of recovering the phase from magnitude measurements; specifically, we wish to reconstruct a complex-valued signal x of C^n about which we have phaseless samples of the form y_r = |< a_r,x >|^2, r = 1,2,...,m (knowledge of the phase of these samples would yield a linear system). This paper develops a non-convex formulation of the phase retrieval […]

7:12 PM | Does a lack of affiliation mean I cannot publish ?
I am not affiliated with Texas A&M University any more. It shouldn't matter, except it does. My profile can not appear on Google Scholar search since I don't have a verified e-mail, i.e an email address ending with '.edu'.Let us not even talk about the fact that a blog does not constitute a publication. Here is another example: when I tried to figure out the exact affiliation I should probably have been listed in the last paper, here is what I received: Dear Igor […]

I wonder if this could be used in the current post publication peer review !The Gamification Design Problem by Michael Meder, Brijnesh-Johannes JainUnder the assumptions that (i) gamification consists of various types of users that experience game design elements differently; and (ii) gamification is deployed in order to achieve some goal in the broadest sense, we pose the gamification problem as that of assigning each user a game design element that maximizes their expected contribution […]

Ben Adcock, one of the author of a paper I mentioned in Random Matrices Are Too Damn Large ! sent me the following:Dear Igor, Many thanks for citing our newest preprint in your blog post on Wednesday. The computational infeasibility of random matrices on all but small problems is a critical issue that has been often overlooked. Having said that, the key message of our paper is that incoherent sensing matrices, regardless of storage/speed issues, are highly suboptimal in […]

3:25 PM | Masculinity, Sensitivity, and Second Wave Privilege.
I am frankly daunted even beginning to write about this topic. Sometimes I feel like it is audacity, these days, to suggest that masculinity has intrinsic value. Indeed, every time I write about masculinity my elder sister asks how anything I write is unique to maleness, and separate from simple adulthood. I don’t know that […]
