@erictleung @becausealice2 Most traditional CS people complain about R’s quirkiness. Advanced R elucidates on this topic.

@erictleung I came across this (https://gombru.github.io/2018/05/23/cross_entropy_loss/) a couple of weeks ago when I was trying to decipher something in a paper and thought you (and others) may be interested since you mentioned cross entropy.
@mirkancal Sorry for the late reply—if it’s not too late, I was referring to something like this or the pile of “tutorials” that you can find by searching for linear regression and machine learning (really, you can’t miss it).

And… hi all! A good friend of mine has a machine learning PhD scholarship on offer (UK/EU only) and application is open until the end of the year. The PhD is in the field of chemistry and is based in the UK, it is open to anyone with a background in mathetmatics, computer science, and/or any natural science is encouraged to apply. I’m more than happy to send the details through if anyone is interested!

@honmanyau nice! Thanks for sharing :+1:
@GoldbergData @becausealice2 I think The R inferno may be better at highlighting R's quirkiness :wink: http://www.burns-stat.com/pages/Tutor/R_inferno.pdf
