Navigating natolambert’s writing

You found me on Medium! I use their great search engine optimization to gather followers across a few modalities.

What I do:

  1. Robot learning research at UC Berkeley (PhD expected fall 2021).
  2. Write high-signal content on the internet on AI, robotics, and my interests (See below).
  3. Nerd out on training, longevity, and what it means to be alive.

Where you will find me:

  1. High signal writing: my Substack on AI, robotics, and automation
  2. Twitter for the knowledge graph @natolambert.
  3. Medium is where some of my ideas from the first two end up. It works, but the material will be slightly delayed.

Some of my popular articles:

  1. Crisp python plots based on visualization theory — an introduction to making your plots tell a fuller story.
  2. How top CS students problem solve — reflections on how the best students I have taught AI to think.
  3. Three introductions to reinforcement learning (RL) — 3 skills to master, how to start learning (code & math), and gists of deep RL algorithms.
  4. A series on the fundamentals of reinforcement learning (1, 2, 3, 4).

My messages are always open on twitter, or comment below!
