Convolutional Neural Networks can be visualized as computation graphs with input nodes where the computation starts and output nodes where the result can be read. Here the models that are provided with mxnet are compared using the mx.viz.plot_network method. The output node is at the top and the input node is at the bottom.

Creating many draft papers using the LaTeX typesetting software creates difficulty when you need to send revisions of a paper for co-authors to review. Using the latexdiff command will generate a new LaTeX document with text removed as red and text additions as blue. This command has trouble with complicated figures and tikz pictures. Over the years I have used the following command to solve some issues by ignoring various parts of a LaTeX document that cause errors.

Many researchers working on attribute subset selection focus on finding the most discriminating subset suboptimal solution using various methods such as greedy search, best first, genetic algorithms, feature filtering, feature clustering, boosting, markov blankets, mutual information, entropy, and many more. One problem with judging the approach of these algorithms is whether they are appropriate for the problem space. Here I attempt to visualize the 2^n space in order to gain a deeper understanding of the methods that will work.

Sometimes we want to SSH to machines that are behind restrictive firewalls or just because the IP keeps changing. Here I discuss a way to proxy using any publicly accessible SSH server without modification to proxy between two machines that are not directly accessible. For example you can SSH from your laptop in a coffee shop to your home machine which has a dynamic IP or your work machine which is behind a firewall.
