From a long time I have been thinking about how I can make independent research easier, accessible and fun. Researches are base for implementations. Researches are ideas explored. They are like a proof of concept for
hey – what’s going on in your mind?
Think about open source. Open source created a way of collaborating and communicating without boundaries. People getting involved without any conformations or revealing their identities. They solved problems, scaled solutions, together. Many platforms became innovative on how they can make the collaboration easier and many business were born, ideas were implemented, problems were solved.
Research is located at few points in world. Independent research is little hard. Research should be present like water and spread like fire. Papers should be like reading Harry Potter books or whatever fiction you like (Ha, I like HP books, only fiction I have read), yea, this much fun. The papers should just be put forward in a way which is more self explanatory and interested instead of being obscure.
Research papers are like newspapers of computing world, not only in computer science, well, say STEM.
Few good souls who initiated making websites where you can easily search research papers and read based on your interest such as –
- https://paperswelove.org/ – Meetups + Let me describe what I think about a research paper and let’s discuss
- http://www.arxiv-sanity.com – You read X paper, wanna read Y because I think the writers and tags are related
- https://paperswithcode.com/ – Wanna checkout the code for a machine learning based paper?
- https://researchcode.com/ – Wanna checkout the code for Computer Science papers based on arXiv and search?
The base they set is you read X, now read Y, ok I give you code, do you want me voicing my own paper? Uh oh.
Can this be easier and interesting?
Journals covered and my areas of interest are –
|Mathematics||Operating Systems and Distributed Systems||Economics||Statistics|
|Combinatorics||EuroSys||ECRI||Journal of Business and Economic|
|Graph Theory||PODC||JWER||Statistics and Computing|
|Number Theory||SOSP||IEJ||Business analytics|
|Probability||USENIX ATC||IJEBR||Operations research|
|Development Econ||Statistical finance|
|Trade and Globalisation|
|Environmental, Resource and Energy Economics|
|Behavioral and Experimental Economics|
I don’t do a lot of computer science in the work where I spent large part of my day, exploring and solving challenging business problems and implementing solutions, on well, leading and helping in the vision of someone else, obv I associate myself w/. I like taking responsibilities. I would love having thoughts from amazing people out there. Mind you – have one independent research paper published in the topic we are talking about, just makes the conversation interesting.
The content got few reviews and few of my friends showed me few more creative implementations other than word GIFs, charts, 3D gifs, cartoons, sketches. Just brushing.
I am not a frequent blogger, I have a lot of publications where I prefer submitting writings, this would be a bulk publication. I hope you find the published stuff interesting.

If you are reading the text, I know I have pushed publishing the writings timing twice.
Nearing the publish timings I see nice things and I feel like one more thinking iteration will make writings more easier for understanding and I reiterate. There are so many ideas floating for cartooning, animation, charting, GIFs. I want the writings does what I want, hitting readers’ head exactly how I want. I also don’t want reiterating till eternity. I should be finishing these in the remaining weeks of November.
Just for giving an idea and setting the mind, writings constitutes:
- One liners for papers
- A paragraph/textual summary for a paper (these posts are less)
- Evolution of topics (say, how garbage collection has evolved in years, pigeonhole principle and real life applications, factorisation algorithms from Shor’s algorithm and many more)
- Per paper writing (having one or all of animations, drawings, cartoons, charts, graphs, sounds, GIFs)
Publish timeline looks like with few other things I would be doing:
