Honesty in Pandemic Modeling. OpenAI Microscope. Analytic Indices? Lossless Image Compression via DL. [DSR #224]

Hi! It’s been a crazy couple of weeks for me—I had a new baby, moved into a new house, and raised venture money for my company (Techcrunch / dbt blog). If you’re ever in the same situation, I’d recommend spacing these life events out a bit more!
Like most of you, I’ve been seeing almost no adult humans IRL. This isolation, the rapid pace of change in my personal life, and the president’s (“sarcastic”) recommendation of injections of disinfectants as a cure for Covid-19 have made me feel like I’m living inside a Picasso. Is this all really happening?!
I have a good set of links lined up for you this week, but I thought I’d also share my mental state beforehand. Talking about anything except for Covid right now seems almost pointless (and your click-through rates reflect this), but I remain undaunted. Let’s talk about data, even if we’re all living in a simulation gone wrong.
