Precision recall curves don't define a single machine learning classifier, they define a class of classifiers parameterized by some threshold. It's important to not confuse a "good auPRC" value with a "good classifier", because there are lots of bad classifiers on that curve #KSepigen
Since this is the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus' founding, I've been totally geeking out over their designs & history. The experimentation! Two amazing archives are the 100th anniversary site: https://www.bauhaus100.com & Harvard Art Museum's digitized collection of A TON of stuff: https://www.harvardartmuseums.org/tour/the-bauhaus
New blog post: A weekend for the Debian website and friends https://larjona.wordpress.com/2019/03/18/a-weekend-for-the-debian-website-and-friends/
Spring Break is supposed to refresh us, but upon returning to teach, I always feel like some cosmic force has deleted my memory..."what were we doing again?"
a.) Library software wouldn't work
b.) Very behind because, see a., and because of my previous workplace, everyone expected me to fix it.
c.) One of my best students dropped a course I was assisting because they kept having conflicts with the prof. I was teaching with.
d.) Very nice house that seemed perfect for me went under contract to someone else.
Bring it, today. I've already survived yesterday.
Trimmed a cheeky 200 words off my lit review for first submission to my uni, with advice "add the cuts later, even though it's infuriating".

I'm a PhD candidate in comparative education. I'll be defending my dissertation in just over a month. My research focuses on policy foresight and the future of technology and education. Looking forward to getting to know this community.
I adopted this chonky baby a month ago. She's called Lambie, she's an arthritic 11 yr old, and has eyebrows which I find hilarious
Just noticed a two-year gap between a paper's first online appearance and its assignment to a 'print' issue. Whenever I run across this, the only thing I think is, 'hello artificial scarcity!'
Wow. I think I might have finally figured out APA 6th to a novice level, despite having already finishing a Master's degree.
The paper reformat is done, and thank god they asked for it because I saw a kerjillion typos (inc. refs - yikes!).
1) Characterization of genomic alterations in primary central nervous system lymphomas
2) Pituitary adenoma and craniopharyngioma collision tumor
3) A very rare case of right insular lobe Langerhans cell histiocytosis (CD1a+) mimicking glioblastoma multiforme in a young adult
4) Amelanotic meningeal melanoma with leptomeningeal dissemination
I have yet to attend a conference here, but that's been for other reasons. Like I always miss the RES paper deadlines, and the PSA/ECPR meetings never interest me. It is, though, very similar to the reason I've been boycotting all conferences in the US for the past couple of years.
A good day to you all!
A new post on my blog: Beyond Utility in Task-Based Language Teaching, now we got a few more language teachers in here.
It's 8:45 in the morning, I already did my laundry, and I am pumped to start working now. What is wrong with me? How do I change back to being alienated and lethargic!?!? 😨
