Went to a concert by the Dutch electronica band Weval this weekend. I invited some acquaintances who like the band as well but they couldn't be bothered or didn't have the time. So I went anyway because why not, really? The music was great but I lost my debit card, so I'm gonna go there again to pick it up tomorrow.

I had a fascinating discussion with a researcher at my faculty yesterday. That ITF paper I keep referring to here, which posits that automated vehicles can remove up to 90% of all cars from our cities? His colleague wrote and created that agent-based model and considered asking him to co-supervise me so that I could expand on it. Sadly the ITF is now selling it to cities for tens of thousands euro at a time which makes it very unlikely I'll be able to get my hands on it for free. But he really wants to help me get to the frontiers of autonomous vehicle modeling for urban systems and is intrigued by my idea to make an AV network design tool. Now I need to slim it down significantly so I can actually finish my thesis this year and not just this decade...

For funsies I'm starting the Deep Learning MOOC by Fast.ai, so I'm messing around with AWS now. Supposedly it's a great course. Has anyone here toyed around with Deep Learning?
