Personalized Learning, Programming Programming Languages, Poker AI, and Technical Interviews
- Problems with Personalized Learning (Dan Meyer) — a thorough and beautiful skewering of vapid edtech promises. Personalized learning is only as good as its technology, and in 2017, that technology isn’t good enough.
- Beautiful Racket — a book on making programming languages, one that’s written to be readable instead of academic.
- DeepStack: Expert-Level Artificial Intelligence in Heads-Up No-Limit Poker — now the AIs are kicking ass at heads-up no-limit Texas Hold ’em.
- Acing the Technical Interview (Aphyr) — satire, I hope. Beautiful beautiful satire.
