Does anyone know if the Boroditsky et al. study from 2003 (that grammatical gender influences how you think about objects) has been replicated?

Oh neat! A sound/music explorable explanation, touches on a lot of the same stuff as my Waveforms project, but with more of a focus on music!

There is a vague plan to do simultaneous R and Python versions. No promises yet.

Ahead of print review/philosophy of science paper I wrote about the inherent difficulty/impossibility of identifying a singular mechanism responsible for cultural transmission in empirical studies. Studying dynamical, open systems is hard.

Apologies to the poet but this is my mood. I have snuffed the maths that were in your paper and which you were probably hoping to publish Forgive me I was assiduous thinking only of karma

Tension remains between generative "macro-state" interpretation and the minimum information interpretation. They are compatible, but relations not always clear or appreciated by same people. Lots of work remains.

I think the target for new results lies in understanding connections btw measurement, inference, and limits of generative models. Steve Frank's papers sketch the territory. (1) (2)

It's fair to say it is easy to misread. So you aren't entirely wrong.

Yeah, that chapter comes across more encouraging than I would have liked. I need a way to say, "IC are better than most approaches, but still terrible."

For random reasons, I've been reading papers about evolution in clonal organisms. This 1995 paper by is super—lucid writing, easy to follow derivations. I got lost in <i,j> indexes only once. Great model for math-bio writing.

Suggestions for José? I always suggest Gelman et al BDA3, but it isn't heavy on code. Pair with 's code examples perhaps: Any good ML books in similar style?

Afterthought: LP is area where Bayes & frequentism happy to agree, as neither must obey Strong version. My guess is Christian Robert may have discussed this at some point. Sorry I don't recall specific paper.

You mean likelihood principle stuff? Generally just not relevant. Jaynes' discussion (p250) is rather dismissive, saying LP holds only in context of a specific model. Strong LP not a foundational principle. Maybe Berger discusses? Not sure.

Benjamin Goodrich's Bayesian Statistics for the Social Sciences lectures add up to 12 hours of content now, ranging from basics to MCMC. More on the way. Very detailed slides. Syllabus etc here
