This book is not only interesting, it's surprisingly general. I myself love doing math and looking through algorithms. The smoother the algorithm the more excited I get. However, I'm recommending this because it does an amazing job of stripping down the essential components of the algorithm in basic terms and applying it to real life situations. … Continue reading Book suggestion: Algorithms to Live by: The Computer Science of Human Decisions
This Christmas I was in between night shifts. As a result, a kind long term friend took me in for Christmas dinner when I woke up at 6pm. Let some of my other friends he was a boardgame enthusiast, so it wasn't surprising that we spent a couple of hours after dinner playing a boardgame.

I love this time of year. The air is sharp and fresh enough to perk me up in the morning. I find myself being able to reset my body clock from the 3am internet addiction. A lot has happened over the past couple of months. The MSc is now in full swing and the more and … Continue reading Increasing computational power empowers clinicians
If you're a clinician there is no doubt that you've spotted a problem and thought of a possible solution. This is having an idea, but how much is it worth? In my previous posts, I have been a little flat with the value of ideas, I've generally said that they are not worth much. If … Continue reading How much is your idea worth?

I liked the first one and then got lazy … Continue reading What can Dyson tell us about success?
In this episode, I and Nathan explore the hype around machine learning and the over hype of science. The podcast is up to an hour long, is tangential and also contains personal anecdotes and light politics. As opposed to the inspirational clinicians section that tries to pack information into a short interview this is for … Continue reading Bryan Podcast: Episode 6
