Welcome to my website. I'm Gabe, a Ph.d. student at UC Davis working under the supervision of Michael Friedlander. I am interested in Convex Optimization, Machine Learning and Probability.
Check out my blog. There I speak my mind on deep learning, nonconvex optimization, and other dark and forbidden arts.
I contribute to the Julia programming language, my favorite language by far for all things technical. It fully supports type checking, unicode variables, and has all the creature comforts of a modern language. Check out my code and notebooks below.
In my free time, I tinker with Computer Graphics, Data Visualization,
Virtual Reality, and think deep thoughts about the internet and our place in
LASSO, Trend Filtering, Group-LASSO, Support Vector Machines (primal, dual, kernel), Support Vector Regression, Quantile Regression, Robust Regression, Non-Negative Least Squares, Convex.jl integration, JuMP Integration
LASSO, Logistic Regression, Maximum-Volume inscribed Ellipsoid, Non-Negative Matrix factorization, Dictionary Learning, Tensor Factorization, Deep Learning.
4 Years of Advice Animals
I saw a beautiful spindle diagram in a natural history museum in montreal (it looked a little like this or this) and I wondered if I could do something similar for memes on the internet. Perhaps memes obeyed similar forces, living and dying in the microclimates of our imagination. A long shot, perhaps. But philosophical pretentions aside, I enjoy at least the visual analogy. Here it is - a D3 visualization of Jason Braughmerger's meticulously mined reddit dataset showing all posts in /r/AdviceAnimal to Dec 2014 with over 50 up-votes. Enjoy!
