All the best, Ken! Not too shabby. Hope to see more of these boxes are checked by 12/31/24 🙌

My 2023 New Year Resolutions

  • Artificial Intelligence
    • Deep dive into deep learning with PyTorch Used Keras/Tensorflow instead
    • Link R for data wrangling and Python PyTorch for deep learning Thanks for reticulate. Been using python modules when R package not available
    • Establish a deep learning project in ID Still Work in Progress, but excited!
  • Statistics
    • Learn bayesian analysis Learnt some Stan
    • Learn bayesian network
    • Write a blog on clinical application of Bayes’ Theorem link
    • Learn LaTex Math formula
  • Econometrics
    • Establish an Instrumental Variable methodology in ID
  • Technology
    • Learn how to make an iOS application
  • Health & Wellness
    • Lose 15 lbs through more activities & portion control
  • Communication
    • Establish “Coaching” questions
    • Use these words (e.g., “really”) less to enhance neutrality
    • Find out staff’s favorite food, color, activities and write it down
  • Leadership
    • Encourage creativity, team-approachness to solving problems

Devoted a significant amount of effort this year on the data science department’s goals. Not too shabby. Although I tried to learn Swift, my busy schedule and ongoing learning commitments meant I couldn’t delve as deeply as I wanted. Unfortunately, I didn’t find any instrumental variables in ID to start a study or explore the question more thoroughly. Also, I didn’t manage any weight loss, which is disappointing, but I’m determined to do better next year. For the coming year, I aim to set more practical and achievable goals, especially in the area of soft skills, to enhance my overall development.! 加油!

My 2024 New Year Resolutions

  • Data Science/Coding
    • I’m going to devote more time in Python
    • Complete my neural network study
    • Learn more about conformal prediction and apply it
    • Attempt to use tidymodels for all analysis and recipes to explore preprocessing techniques
  • Statistics
    • Continue my journey in Causal Inference
      • Re-read Causal Inference and Discovery in Python
      • Dive into McElReath’s Statistical Rethinking
  • Health/Wellness
    • At least 10 push-ups everyday with +1 every week
    • No 75th1 on 854
  • Soft skills
    • Establish “Coaching” questions
    • Find out staff’s favorite food, color, activities and write it down
