This project got strangled somewhere along the way, but Simon got quite far with the interface. Hopefully, he will continue some day. he was thinking of calling the editor something like “tiger editor”.
Simon hasn’t put this project online yet, as he wanted to make it more interactive and hasn’t managed to do that so far.
Simon’s new series of web development tutorials: two new playlists How to make a Calendar and How to make Buttons:
Simon has recorded his first set of web development tutorials, about how to create a slideshow. The original code comes from the w3schools.com website.
Simon got stuck in the previous video, but debugged his code in #1.5:
Update: Simon has recorded the last how to in this Slideshow series, about hoe to make the slideshow automatic:
He also created an account on the library website, but couldn’t figure out how to create a new project. We should look at it together this week when I finally have more time.
These are two small videos of Simon trying the D3 library out:
Simon has been working on a very complicated topic for the past couple of days: Linear Regression. In essence, it is the math behind machine learning.
Simon was watching Daniel Shiffman’s tutorials on Linear Regression that form session 3 of his Spring 2017 ITP “Intelligence and Learning” course (ITP stands for Interactive Telecommunications Program and is a graduate programme at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts).
Daniel Shiffman’s current weekly live streams are also largely devoted to neural networks, so in a way, Simon has been preoccupied with related stuff for weeks now. This time around, however, he decided to make his own versions of Daniel Shiffman’s lectures (a whole Linear Regression playlist), has been busy with in-camera editing, and has written a resume of one of the Linear Regression tutorials (he actually sat there transcribing what Daniel said) in the form of an interactive webpage! This Linear Regression webpage is online at: https://simon-tiger.github.io/linear-regression/ and the Gragient Descent addendum Simon made later is at: https://simon-tiger.github.io/linear-regression/gradient_descent/interactive/ and https://simon-tiger.github.io/linear-regression/gradient_descent/random/
And here come the videos from Simon’s Liner Regression playlist, the first one being an older video you may have already seen:
Here Simon shows his interactive Linear Regression webpage:
A lecture of Anscombe’s Quartet (something from statistics):
Then comes a lecture on Scatter Plot and Residual Plot, as well as combining Residual Plot with Anscombe’s Quartet, based upon video 3.3 of Intelligence and Learning. Simon made a mistake graphing he residual plot but corrected himself in an addendum (end of the video):
And finally, Linear Regression with Gradient Descent algorithm and how the learning works. Based upon Daniel Shiffman’s tutorial 3.4 on Intelligence and Learning:
In jQuery mobile he made a webpage featuring event handlers:
And in CSS, inspired by this :
Simon has tried using jQuery instead of CSS to style a couple of webpages. The code comes from a Derek Banas tutorial.
These buttons have quite amusing effects:
Simon trained with w3schools.com using their CSS library to create coloured boxes, panels, notes, quotes, danger alerts, box shadows, tables, buttons (floating, disables and shadow buttons), tags, tables, batches and signs.
