I skipped a lot of the past days as for one week it was continuous linear algebra, so there wasn’t much value in updating. I then moved on to AI datasets and then image processing, but it went well.
An idea recently was making my own life advice section posts, but then I have to find time in the week to do it.
09–14:30 I managed to find perfect concenration to revise my neural network notes in my favourite café
14:30–16:30 went home then went for a run
16:30–20:00 Non-work committments
09:00–12:00 revised convolutions
12:00–14:00 read spanish book in park
Do better next time — visit somewhere less familial on Saturdays
08:30 I was finishing off this idea of lack of replication in dermatology trials
11:30 went to histo. Fortunately zero melanocytic lesions. Cases I remember: dowling-Degos, extramammary pagets, ctcl looking like a capillaritis, atrophoderma, amyloid
I then went for a break as I thought it was one of the spr’s last day, but then they there’s a part next week
15:45. Downloading data set failed. Ran out of space. Nightmare
Then started the Andrew Ng course but I’ve already covered most of it and it is on octave so might not be that useful. So that’s good news overall.
Today was a better start, 8:30. And it’s easier to study in the rain
Carrying on with the AI papers
From tomorrow I will start these with an update of my current projects, as that has to be my main focus during the ACF time.
Last night was slightly disastrous. I can only think that my matte-leão teabags have more caffeine than I appreciate as I couldn’t sleep until 00:30. So now I have about 3 hours of sleep to catch up on.
What I learned yesterday
I wanted to keep a log of what I did in my academic block, as I’m particularly worried about not maximising the time. I liked this blog on looking to improve in multiple areas, and so I wanted something to record my progress — as I often forget the work I did, and then look back thinking I didn’t do enough — and create accountability. So far I’ve been happy with how much work I’ve done, my focus, and I’m happy doing it.
So today I started later than I would have liked: 09:20, but I have commute of…
