The Monte Carlo Approach

Simulation is easier than algebra

Gorgeous ggplots

Some fine looking ggplot functions I’ve put together over the years

Should we be tracking COVID19 symptoms online?

I think so, but I’m not an epidemiologist, so I’ll need some help.

Journals and What they Charge You (and a paper someone should write)

EEG Current Source Density and the Surface Laplacian

How does it work? Why does it work? I try to figure out this and more.

Evidently: Simulate Evidence Accumulation Models in Python

I’ve just put the finishing touches on version 0.0.1 of Evidently is a python package for working with evidence accumulation models. In short, it lets you do things like this: Since I spent all that time writing a Read Me page for the GitHub repository, I’ve reproduced it below. Evidently Evidently provides Efficient functions for simulating data from a range of models. Classes that make it easier to tweak model parameters and manage simulated data.

Robust Outlier Detection using the T Distribution

Please, don’t just drop data 3 standard deviations from the mean.
