July 3, 2012

In the last four installments of this series, we have seen linear interpolation, cubic interpolation, Hermite splines, and lastly cardinal splines.

In this installment (which should be the last of the series; at least for a while), let us have a look at how we can implement these interpolation efficient.

November 15, 2011

Today I am going to talk about my day job a bit. Contrary to previous jobs, a good part (but not all) of what I do now is either public domain or open-source. Two the projects I joined recently are Theano and PyLearn.

Theano is a mathematical expression compiler that maps expressions described in Python to machine-efficient code, either targeting the CPU or the GPU. PyLearn is a work in progress that aims to provide a comprehensive machine-learning framework for Theano.
