Functors and monads are powerful design patterns used in Haskell. They give us two cool tricks for analyzing data. First, we can “preprocess” data after we’ve already trained a model. The model will be automatically updated to reflect the changes. Second, this whole process happens asymptotically faster than the standard method of preprocessing. In some cases, you can do it in constant time no matter how many data points you have! — Functors and monads for analyzing data

At some point, I should make a chart to inspect how the tags on the main blog evolved over time. I expect that R progressively faded in after 2016, and that the rate of functional programming language-related posts increase in recent years, while readings and other technical reviews actually remain quite the same as in previous years. #this

A ChatGPT Emacs shell. Of course. What if we can’t put this right under an Emacs key chord? ;-) Nice work by the way! See also Building A ChatGPT-enhanced Python REPL.
