Four short links: 28 December 2018
Bayes Notes, Fake Internet, Tensorflow Privacy, Sortable UUIDs
- Updating: A Set of Bayesian Notes — Notes on Bayesian methods – written to supplement CS&SS/STAT 564: Bayesian Statistics for the Social Sciences.
- How Much of the Internet is Fake? (NY Mag) — What’s gone from the internet, after all, isn’t “truth,” but trust: the sense that the people and things we encounter are what they represent themselves to be.
- TensorFlow Privacy — Library for training machine learning models with privacy for training data.
- Universally Unique Lexicographically Sortable Identifiers — 128-bit compatibility with UUID; 1.21e+24 unique ULIDs per millisecond; Lexicographically sortable!; Canonically encoded as a 26 character string, as opposed to the 36 character UUID; Uses Crockford’s base32 for better efficiency and readability (5 bits per character); Case insensitive; No special characters (URL safe); Monotonic sort order (correctly detects and handles the same millisecond).
