AlphaFold @ CASP13: “What just happened?” | Some Thoughts on a Mysterious Universe
I just came back from CASP13, the biennial assessment of protein structure prediction methods (I previously blogged about CASP10.) I participated in a panel on deep learning methods in protein structure prediction, as well as a predictor (more on that later.) If you keep tabs on science news, you may have heard that DeepMind’s debut went rather…

Modeling Message Queues in TLA+ • Hillel Wayne
I recently did a corporate TLA+ workshop and some people asked what TLA+ specs look like in practice. If you looked at the most common public examples, you’d probably come away thinking that people only used it for critical consensus algorithms. This is a problem for two reasons: first, it makes it harder to learn TLA+, as there aren’t simpler examples to experiment with. Second, it makes it hard for people to see how TLA+ is useful for them.
