Movie and TV Show Recommender

Using a lot of data wrangling and NLP, I created a movie and tv show recommender: Basically, the user selects from the drop-down list their movie/tv show of interest, and the algorithm will recommend a combination of movies and tv shows that the user is most likely to be interested in. I tried to include […]

On Entropy and Time Reversal

As a huge Christopher Nolan fan, I am very excited that Tenet is finally coming out this week! Here is the new and final trailer for those of you that have not seen it yet: One of the main themes in this movie will evidently be on “time inversion/reversal” based on the reversing entropy. Since […]

Revisiting Kaluza Klein Theory

In the video below, I explain how to derive Kaluza Klein action which occurs from generalizing the Einstein-Hilbert action to five dimensions. The grand implication of this is that gravity and electromagnetism are unified!

Deriving Least Squares Coefficients Using Tensor/Index Notation

Many textbooks when introducing ordinary least squares as a method to do regression (usually via introducing linear regression) don’t explain / derive the coefficients. Here, I explain how to do it using tensor/index notation.

Coronavirus Predictions

By: Dr. Ikjyot Singh Kohli I wrote an extensive script in R that takes the most recent data available for the number of new/confirmed COVID-19 cases per day by location and computes the probability using statistical learning that a selected location will observe a new COVID-19 case (probability of observing a non-zero daily percentage return).
