It’s probably a good time to remind ourselves that, in spite of the evidence of the past few years, this is a collaborative blog. I hope you enjoyed the glorious return of Berian (who named this blog, incidentally). I’m hoping he’ll write more about the overlap of astronomy and data science, and the difference between the academic and business world more generally.
Incidentally, Brendon Brewer is blogging some Bayesian thoughts over at Plausibility Theory, so please follow that blog. There’s some particularly interesting stuff on probabilities and thermodynamics. Matt Francis, after working for a time in Italy and at the Bureau of Meteorology, has also wandered into the business world. Matt was kind enough to come back to the astronomers at the University of Sydney and share his experiences outside academia.
