On a free day in Nachi-Taksuura, I came across this call for a professional oath for mathematicians (and computer engineers and scientists in related fields) . By UCL mathematician Hannah Fry. The theme is the same as with Weapons of math destruction, namely that algorithms have a potentially huge impact on everyone’s life and that […]

Diego Mesquita, Paul Blomstedt, and Samuel Kaski (from Helsinki, like the above picture) just arXived a paper on embarrassingly parallel MCMC. Following a series of papers discussed on this ‘og in the past. They use a deep learning approach of Dinh et al. (2017) to the computation of the probability density of a convoluted and […]
