After I read that spectral clustering tutorial, my professor told me to write a matlab program that performs spectral clustering. This is fun and funny because I don’t reeeeeaaaaally know how to program.
But oh man, it’s hard to stop. It’s like the opposite of math. In math I feel like I’m nowhere near understanding anything right up until I suddenly have a breakthrough. Programming I constantly feel like I’m seconds away from a breakthrough, and then I look up and it’s four hours later, the code still doesn’t work, and my neck hurts.
