Learn Data Science the Hard Way
So you want to be a Data Scientist? The good news is that there are tons of great resources out there to learn from. The bad? None is comprehensive, and choosing the best can be completely overwhelming. I created this list to help you stay focused on learning what’s important, the easiest way possible. But it won’t be easy…

Can deep learning help you find the perfect girl?
One of the first things I did when I moved to Montreal was installing Tinder. For those of you not familiar with the online meat market, Tinder is a dating app showing nearby users you can like or dislike by their profile pictures. After using the app for a while, I discovered that although I consistently disliked girls with a lot of piercings and tattoos (no offence, just not my type), the app kept showing me these profiles. It surprised me that Tinder did not use my history of swipes to learn what type of girls I like. This observation made me think: can a computer learn to which girls I’m attracted? I have tried by labeling over 9K profile pictures on Tinder and using deep learning, the latest revolution in artificial intelligence. In this blog post, I will provide a high-level view how I used these techniques to predict my Tinder swipes. You can find the technical details in this paper, which was accepted for the ICML deep learning workshop.
