  4. Calculus and Neural Nets (MIT TR) — readable article about this paper, which replaces layers in a neural network with calculus: Calculus gives you all these nice equations for how to calculate a series of changes across infinitesimal steps—in other words, it saves you from the nightmare of modeling continuous change in discrete units.
  5. Engineering Management: The Pendulum or the Ladder (Charity Majors) — excellent advice to engineers faced with the choice or interest to go into engineering management.
