It is the end of June, which means we are officially half-way through the summer term. Wow, that sounds crazy! For students, the summer period may be one of the busiest every year.

Furthermore, everyone tries to pack their week-end and evenings with trips, outings and festivals. Overall, it can be pretty exhausting. To all the other students out there, you can do it!

No, I am thinking about behavioral, economic and psychology sciences. As a computer science and statistics major, I rarely get to study human behavior. To fill the gap, I enjoy reading books and wikipedia pages to learn about interesting trivial hypothesis. Below is a list of my favorite trivial facts I believe everyone should know!
Get excited cause this is April’s Blog Reads list! The month is passing so fast as I am ending my 4 months internship. Hence, I am writing my April post in advance. Here is a quick list of what is happening in the computer science and data science worlds.
