SMART 2021 GoalWeek 5: Let’s celebrate a perfect February!

Can we take a moment to appreciate how satisfying it is that this February starts on Monday and ends on Sunday? These kinds of coincidences give me a sense of accomplishment, even though there’s absolutely nothing I do to arrange a month as it would start at the beginning of the week.

This week I focused on R. I started working on data frames and it has been very interesting so far. Also, I attended a tutorial on SQL, I still don’t know how I feel about it since I don’t have much experience, but I’d like to learn more about it for sure.

A few days ago a friend of mine send me the video and I became very obsessed with it. This video is about how Tolga Ozuygur created a Rap Robot, E-Bliss. He goes through the steps of creating the robot itself with the 3D printer, writing the code for synchronizing the robot’s movements with audio files and the ML that fed with trap songs and the outcome is just fantastic.

If you’d like to see the video you can click here (you can see the resource code as well) or the song itself you can click here. Both videos will be in Turkish, but I highly recommend you to check the video, it’s pretty catchy.

Reflection on this week

I don’t feel as organized as I was. Getting out of bed and learning something is getting a bit harder these days. I’m trying to change my environment such as trying to work in a different room, having herbal tea instead of coffee, or changing my light. It helps the feeling of always doing the same things.

What I’m planning to do next week?

I’d like to finish my R course first. I have around 30 videos to go through, that shouldn’t be a problem.

3Blue1Brown has a really nice short playlist about Neural Networks, I will watch them on my downtime.

Also, I’d like to continue on TensorFlow training by deeplerarning.ai. I purchased it a while ago but now it feels like a good time to get back to it.

I wish you all an amazing week!
