Some hobbies outside of studying & raising children:
I kept track of a lot of things my oldest son said as he learned to talk here. Sometimes they’re relevant to cognitive development (feel free to use–just let us know, because he’ll be proud).
To familiarize myself with Django I built a simple implementation of my family’s system for assigning chores to household members… which is to say, brute-force minimax. How cool is it to know that, by your very own rankings, you are doing 45% of the work, and so is your partner? Try it out here.
Frequently adjusting insulin dosing protocols in insulin-dependent diabetes is critically important, but it’s a time-consuming challenge for patients and clinicians that tends to involve… staring at a chart and thinking hard. I’m trying out a simple approach using a Bayes net to directly implement the causal model that humans are implicitly trying to use for inference.
