How can we do data science without all of our data?

This research serves as a pre-cursor to the work that I am carrying out as part of my PhD, and involves unnormalised and truncated probability density estimation. This is a field which I find extremely interesting, and I believe that it has far reaching applications not just across data science and machine learning, but across many other disciplines as well.

Hot Takes for R

The arrow assigment operator <- is useless. Before I’m crucified by the R community, hear me out and read this post. Every time I read code written by an academic, lecturer or someone who uses R frequently, I come across the arrow symbol <- used for assignment of variables.
