I purchased a new website that will serve as an educational resource to the machine learning and data science spaces. Yes, I know this website still needs an overhaul, but my focus will be on that site for a while. This one may revert to being more of a personal / professional blog at some point. In hindsight, trying to use this domain as a base for an education startup was a bad idea. Live and learn.
In other news, I will defend my general exams on Monday and start working as a Data Scientist on Tuesday. I am grateful that the company is encouraging me to complete my PhD and offering me significant time away from the office for academic pursuits. This should allow me to finish the degree within a reasonable timeframe. The first draft of my dissertation proposal should also be complete in the very near future.
