For more information on my research, please see the website for my lab: CLMBR (Computation, Langauge and Meaning Band of Researchers), my C.V., and/or Google Scholar.

  • Montreean: visualize constituency parse trees vaguely in the style of Piet Mondrian.
  • edugrad: a minimal re-implementation of the PyTorch API (dynamic computation graphs + backpropagation), designed for pedagogical purposes
  • Tutorial introduction to neural networks: slides and Jupyter notebook, explaining and introducing neural networks. Includes a worked example with quantifiers (in PyTorch) and additional practical advice. (Largely supersedes the tutorial linked below, though that one can still be useful for understanding TensorFlow's estimators interfactor.)
  • Decision and Game Theory for AI: lecture notes (in the form of Jupyter Notebooks) for a mini-course on decision and game theory for undergraduates in AI. Includes simple implementations of things like CDT/EDT, replicator dynamic, reinforcement learning in signaling games.
  • Generate Dot Arrays for Psycholinguistic Experiments: Python script for generating colored dot arrays, including the four stimulus type from Pietroski et al 2009, "Psychosemantics of `most'".
  • Joyce's Argument for Probabilism: this is a Mathematica notebook that carries out the construction in the proof of Joyce's most general argument for probabilism from his 2009 "Accuracy and Coherence: Prospects for an Alethic Epistemology of Partial Belief"
