Correlation does not prove causality,
          but they are highly correlated.

Teaching:

The earth does not, in fact, move around the sun
            any more than the sun moves around the earth.
   The former point of view just simplifies the math.

At Stanford I teach several courses, including In Interaction Analysis (Symbolic Systems 145) which focuses on human learning about and interaction with complex engineered systems, and Symbolic Biocomputing (Symbolic Systems 216) where we study Artificial Intelligence applications in biological computation. (Symbolic Biocomputing is no longer offered as a formal course. Instead, the materials are online and open source in the form of BioBike Live Tutorials.)

Cognition for readers with short attention spans


Epoophany:

Epoophany n. A sudden, seemingly deep insight
that you realize is completely stupid
immediately upon posting it on the internet.
Filer (C++) (for Unix) is a regular-
expression-like meta-command generator
Maybe photons don't exist at all.
When we say we've "detected" a photon,
maybe what we are detecting is two points
in the intricate dynamic folding of space-time
coming into contact with one another...?
