[Day 879] A script to keep track of state-of-the-art AI research

While doing research, I often find myself wondering: “What’s the state-of-the-art result for XYZ right now?” I just want a tool that returns the summary of the latest SOTA research. My usual go-to place is Google, but I quickly realize that Google often returns:

  • papers that have a lot of citations, which means they are old.
  • articles that discuss SOTA systems. Again, these articles can be a couple of years old.
  • irrelevant results that share the same name as XYZ.

At best, I have to skim those results. At worst, I don’t find what I’m looking for at all (I might if I go to the next page results but who does that?) [See the rest of the post and more information on the script that I wrote on huyenchip.com]

[Day 876] I’m a street doctor

I was walking home from work today when I saw a man listening to what looked like a stethoscope, except that the earpieces were on the ground instead of someone’s chest. There was water spilling from the ground around him. Continue reading “[Day 876] I’m a street doctor”

[Day 836] Crazy poor Asians

I didn’t want to watch “Crazy rich Asians.” I tried to read the first book but gave up after a few chapters because it was obnoxious. It is filled with descriptions about how rich rich people are. What am I supposed to learn from that?

I also hated it that the first time Asians are represented on the big screen, it’s about the crazy rich. I can’t relate to them. Where are all my crazy poor, hardworking, discount-hunting Asian homies at?  Continue reading “[Day 836] Crazy poor Asians”

[Day 823] Google X

Simon asked me to come to a robotics event with him at Google X, the moonshot factory. I was psyched — there’s such an air of secrecy around X. The only problem is that I wasn’t invited. Some friends at X asked around for me but unfortunately, the event was full (s/o to Nick and Stephen for being homies). Simon told me to come anyway. If I couldn’t get in, we’d just grab a drink.

[Day 822] Dance your way through life

Some friends messaged me that I seemed rather down in my previous blog posts. I appreciate their concern and I’m happy to say that the down phase is over. I’m doing great. I’m feeling great. I rarely have the urge to just lie in bed and do nothing. When that happens, it’s because I’m a bum and not because I’m sad. I even went on a date. I was so awkward that I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t want a second date, but this still made me happy. The butterfly feeling I had in my stomach before the date let me know that I can fall in love again. Continue reading “[Day 822] Dance your way through life”
