I’m Alex Gude, a data scientist with a passion for plots and algorithms, but also cycling and photography. I got my start in the valley at Insight Data Science. In my previous life, I was a high energy particle physicist at CERN and a cosmologist at Lawrence Berkeley Labs.
I write about whatever catches my attention here on this site; mostly that means data science, machine learning, deep learning, and software development related topics. My writings on deep learning from my time at Lab41 can be found at Gab41. If you’re interested in my thoughts in real time, follow me on Twitter: @alex_gude
The code that I write lives on my Github page. Check it out! Bug reports and pull requests welcome!
Below you can find my most recent articles and projects; older ones can be found here:
When I was young and naive I tried to write very clever code. Here is one of the worst examples.
Being a nerd dad, I recorded all the words my first two sons spoke as they learned them. Now, I compare their language development rate!
My second son is a little over two years old. We tracked every word he's spoken to watch his language development, and now you can observe it too!
As I've gotten more senior as a data scientist, I've found I have to keep track of more and more things. This is how I do it!
Time to improve another plot from Wikipedia. This time I tackle one showing the prize money in the Tour de France over time!
