software + interactive articles

  • roughViz.js

    Reusable JavaScript library for creating sketchy/hand-drawn styled charts in the browser, based on D3v5 & roughjs.

  • Train, Test, And Validation Sets

    Learn why it is best practice to split your data into training, testing, and validation sets, and explore the utility of each with a live machine learning model.

  • The Good, the Rad, and the Gnarly

    'An exploration into the music of skateboarding'. Visual essay I created for The Pudding.

  • ROC & AUC

    A visual, interactive explanation of Receiver Operating Characteristic (ROC) Curves and Area Under The Curve (AUC).

  • Decision Trees

    An explanation of the Decision Tree algorithm in machine learning: how the tree makes its splits, the concepts of Entropy and Information Gain, and why going too deep is problematic.

  • Precision & Recall

    When it comes to evaluating classification models, accuracy is often a poor metric. This article covers two common alternatives, Precision and Recall, as well as the F1-score and Confusion Matrices.

  • Random Forest

    Learn how the majority vote and well-placed randomness can extend the decision tree model to one of machine learning's most widely-used algorithms, the Random Forest.

  • Double Descent: A Visual Introduction

    An introduction to the double descent phenomenon in modern machine learning: what it is, how it relates to the bias-variance tradeoff, and a theory of what lies behind.

  • Double Descent: A Mathematical Explanation

    A mathematical explanation of the double descent phenomenon, building on the cubic spline example introduced in the prior article.

  • The Bias Variance Tradeoff

    Understand the tradeoff between under- and over-fitting models, how it relates to bias and variance, and explore interactive examples related to LOESS and KNN.

  • Datasets

    A curated list of some cool datasets that I created.

  • The Permutation Test

    A 'scrolly-telling' visual tutorial of statistical testing with hand-drawn SVG aesthetics.

  • Sperm Hero

    A game where you control a sperm cell with your head and dodge various forms of birth control.

  • The Networks of Skateboarding Filmmakers

    A look into the networks (graphs) of skateboarding filmmakers and the skateboarders they film.

  • 4PLYMAG: All The Gall

    An analysis of Fred Gall's prolific skateboarding career.

  • Nested Machine Learning Workflows

    An introduction to nested machine learning workflows in R with tidyr & purrr.

  • 4PLYMAG: Eric Koston

    A look and analysis the professional skateboarding career of Eric Koston.

  • Jenkem Mag

    Sometimes I do data-driven stuff for Jenkem Mag, a skateboard magazine.
