Building Expertise

Even if you are someone who dabbles in multiple topics, you can still build expertise.

Find HOW from the following threads🧵
1/ If you have multiple interests, it means you are more curious than others.

In fact, I had to go past 200 books to understand my keen interest in (cognitive + behavioral) psychology, neuroscience, and philosophy.

And mind you, I’m an economist by training.

So Have Patience!
2/ If you are still struggling to pick a topic, then choose a topic based on something you already find fascinating and love to learn.

For instance, if your bookshelf is filled with leadership & Development books, then there lies the hint.

ACM #Multimedia 2021: Skeleton-Contrastive 3D Action Representation Learning w/ @fmthoker, @doughty_hazel: We learn invariances to multiple #skeleton representations and introduce various skeleton augmentations via noise contrastive estimation 1/n
Contribution I: leverage multiple input-representations of #3D-#skeleton sequences. Our inter-skeleton contrast learns from a pair of representations in a cross-contrastive fashion. Enriches the sparse input space and focuses on the high-level semantics of the skeleton data. 2/n
Contribution II: three skeleton-specific #augmentations for generating positive pairs which encourage the model to focus on the spatio- temporal #dynamics of skeleton-based @action sequences, ignoring confounding factors such as viewpoint and exact joint positions. 3/n

1/What defines a sound investor? One who intuitively acknowledges their psychological biases and trades emotion for pure rationality. Ironic, isn't it?

Investors are driven by multiple unconscious biases. We wrote a thread🧵 on some of them. Thread starts
2/Let's start by defining what's an 'unconscious bias'. Also known as a cognitive bias, it's an error in judgement due to personal preferences leading to poor decisions.
3/*1.Overconfidence bias* aka I’m the next Warren Buffett
Placing too much faith in your knowledge leads you to think you're an expert investor with the Midas touch. Eg: A student omits studying entire chapters for an exam because "questions from these chapters will never come"

I have been confused for a while on what's the best way to implement a "to string" functionality for a #Rust struct. 🦀

The reason why this has been confusing to me is that there are indeed many ways to do that and they all have different purposes!

This is what I learned

The first thing that you can do is to just implement a simple `to_string()` function directly on your struct!…
This is easy and it works! But the implementation is very specific to our struct.

The rest of the codebase doesn't really know that this type can be converted to a String and therefore you cannot build abstractions on top of this... 🤨

#Covid #Learning

There is lot of learning from Covid pandemic. I am hoping for following three changes to become part of Indian medical system.

I am eternal optimist.

a thread -
Change 1 -

I would like to see doctors following guidelines in treating ALL illnesses. Not getting straight jacketed but respecting research driven guidance.
Too many doctors claim to be geniuses and create cocktails that are useless at best and deadly at worst.
This would not only safeguard good doctors in litigation but put responsibility on bodies that form guidelines. If they want to bask in glory, they need to be accountable as well.
A sensible doctor finds good guidelines supportive, protective, uses them to rationalize treatment.

As I was going through papers and packing while trying to find a place to live, I came across something that my Father wrote many years ago.


'LORD, are you trying to tell me something?
For .. failure does not mean I'm a failure;
It does mean ... I have not yet succeeded.
Failure does not mean ...I have accomplished nothing;
Failure does not mean ... I have been a fool;
Failure does not mean ...I don't have it;
It does not mean I am inferior.
It does mean...I am not perfect.
Failure does not mean...I've waisted my time.
Failure does not mean ...I should give up;

I have the following image as a poster in my office for several reasons, which I will expound upon in subsequent tweets. Firstly it was produced by hand by Theodore ‘Ted’ Fujita, who developed the F-scale (later the EF-Scale based in wind intensity and damage. Image
What I really noticed in the key/legend on the map was how he was also looking at the type of structure where fatalities occurred, something that other scientists (@StephenMStrader) were looking at before I came along, but once you start, you can’t stop. I’m pretty much obsessed. Image
