Rewriting Code, Anomaly Detection, Program Synthesis, and Travel Tricks
- Comby — a tool for matching and rewriting code.
- Continuous Contrast Set Mining (Facebook) — effectively a paper on CCSM, an anomaly-detection framework that uses contrast set mining (CSM) techniques to locate statistically “interesting” (defined by several statistical properties) sets of features in groups. A novel algorithm we’ve developed extends standard contrast set mining from categorical data to continuous data, inspired by tree search algorithms and multiple hypothesis testing.
- Building Your First Program Synthesizer — In this post, I want to get concrete and show what’s involved in building a synthesis tool. By the end of this post, we’ll have a tool that can synthesize simple arithmetic expressions.
- My Travel Habits — some very good travel hacks from VM Brasseur, but I just needed to be told the answer to “should I pack this?” is always “NO.”
