My deep learning paper on predicting license plate auction prices made it to Financial Times! This is actually the first paper in a series: followup papers will use the prediction model to look into various investment anomalies. Somewhere down the road there will also be a field experiment where we will provide auction participants with an app to gives them estimates in real time.

(Thanks to James Ko for sending me the article!)




Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans is somewhat similar to Game of Thrones: there are no obvious goods guys and bad guys in the war, important characters do die, and no superhero with the power to single-handedly turn the tide of battle.

婆婆八十多歲人第一次去維園。 孫子要上班,幸好有Esther作孝順孫新抱!
Grandma had never been to the Victoria Park before. All thanks to Esther as I was still at work.

Logan is the best Wolverine movie by far. It is an R-rated movie, but it also has a strong emphasis on family and social values, delivered through scenes that can bring an audience to tears. Given what is happening in the United States right now, suddenly it does not sound all that ridiculous that the mutant children in the movie were trying to escape from America to Canada. The demise of the intellectual class, exemplified by the suffering of Charles Xavier, just make it all the more sad.
