There are a few Mathematical Statistics/Statistical Learning Theory blogs I enjoy reading, and wanted to ask on the main site for recommendations of similar theory-focused Statistics/ML blogs, as I thought it may interest not only me but many other visitors of this site.
Basically, I wanted to ask a "big-list type" Community Wiki question along those lines :
I am looking for blogs that focus on the mathematical theory of Statistics and Machine Learning, ideally at a research or advanced level.
The blog doesn't have to be solely about these topics but ideally most of the posts would be exposing the mathematical theory of an idea/concept/algorithm that is either directly or closely related to them. Here are two examples of what I'm looking for (Disclaimer : I have no affiliation with any of these people):
- Gregory Gundersen's blog which neatly presents the theory of many well-known algorithms and results in Statistics, such as Conjugate Gradient Descent, Ordinary Least Squares, Hidden Markov Models... Some of the posts contain illustration with available source code
- Francis Bach's Machine Learning Research blog which introduces some of his research topics and results in a more accessible way than reading his papers. There are many excellent in-depth writings about kernel methods, optimization algorithms for Machine Learning and general Statistical Learning Theory.
Please limit your answer to less than 2-3 links and provide a short description for each blog, as above.
Before posting this question, I had concerns about it possibly violating some guidelines related to spam, self-promotion, conflict of interest or something related. I couldn't figure out if were the case by reading the FAQ, so I wanted to ask about it on meta first.
The thing is, as I looked to see if similar questions had been asked before, I found these two similar questions : Which Machine Learning blog do you recommend ? and What Statistical blogs would you recommend ? which have been closed as off-topic, and the reason is not clear to me.
So I want to know : Why have these two questions been closed ? Would my question count as off-topic and be closed as well ? If so, why, and is there any way I can salvage it ?
Thanks for your time.
