PsyArXiv Preprints | How to become a Bayesian in eight easy steps: An annotated reading list
In this guide, we present a reading list to serve as a concise introduction to Bayesian data analysis. The introduction is geared toward reviewers, editors, and interested researchers who are new to Bayesian statistics. We provide commentary for eight recommended sources, which together cover the theoretical and practical cornerstones of Bayesian statistics in psychology and related sciences.

Can we open the black box of AI?
Looking into the black box of machine learning in order to understand why a machine is behaving in a particular way.

The problem is that the knowledge gets baked into the network, rather than into us.

Deep Dream starts from an image — say a flower, or a beach — and modifies it to enhance the response of a particular top-level neuron.

Neural networks are surprisingly easy to fool with images that to people look like random noise, or abstract geometric patterns.

Scientists contend that efforts at creating transparent AI should be seen as complementary to deep learning, not as a replacement.

Indie Game: The Movie - Edmund McMillen Discusses Game Design Principles — Critical Commons
ood design does not require explicit instruction; rather, players learn from the game implicitly through environmental design as well as subtle ramping in challenge. Players are forced to adapt and discover new ways to solve puzzles or challenges. As this video shows, it's best to complicate the dominant narratives of player freedom and player control associated with games. While players are meant to feel like they are free and making discoveries, they are also following a path meticulously crafted by the designer. From the perspective of education and game-based learning, this video also shows us how players learn within games primarily through experimentation and failure. Instead of needing to get it exactly right the first time, games encourage players to "fail forward" by testing a game system's boundaries, figuring the system out, and finding the most successful path forward.

Learnable Programming
A well-designed system is not simply a bag of features. A good system is designed to encourage particular ways of thinking.

The environment should allow the learner to:

read the vocabulary -- what do these words mean?
follow the flow -- what happens when?
see the state -- what is the computer thinking?
create by reacting -- start somewhere, then sculpt
create by abstracting -- start concrete, then generalize

The language should provide:

identity and metaphor -- how can I relate the computer's world to my own?
decomposition -- how do I break down my thoughts into mind-sized pieces?
recomposition -- how do I glue pieces together?
readability -- what do these words mean?

Why Can’t Someone Be Taught Until They’re Ready To Learn?
“Questions are places in your mind where answers fit. If you haven’t asked the question, the answer has nowhere to go. It hits your mind and bounces right off. You have to ask the question – you have to want to know – in order to open up the space for the answer to fit.”

A speech to graduating Harvard architects - TEDChris: The untweetable
So I guess my advice would be... Don't pursue your passion directly. At least not yet. Instead... pursue the things that will empower you. Pursue knowledge. Be relentlessly curious. Listen, learn. Pursue discipline. And above all. Pursue generosity.
