I’m a seasoned data scientist interested in rational thinking, human behaviour, AI and all things automation.

I also dabble in data visualisation. Some things cobbled together in spare time:

Grand Sumo Tournament Matchups — visualisation of how sumo wrestlers of varying rank are matched up in “grand tournaments.”
Hat tip to Sumo Reference for all the data.

Sumo odds — scraped from Marathonbet and nicely presented.

QI scores: results of all episodes of one of my favourite shows — QI?
Data taken from http://qiscoreboard.com/scores/ and “patched” by me.

Sloppy chart is an extended version of the standard line or bar chart, with each line segment or bar representing two values instead of just one.

Domination chart is an animated bar chart illustrating competition between two opponents across a set of “battlegrounds” (e.g. game levels).


My other projects:

ZX Games brings back popular games from the age of ZX Spectrum, so you can play Lode Runner and Boulder Dash on a Windows computer (shame about other platforms).

MovieLog is was an iPhone app that keeps the list of movies you’ve watched or are going to watch. Archived page helps us remember.

iSociotype is a web app which determines your (or anyone else’s) sociotype.
Sociotype (or “type of information metabolism”) is the key concept of socionics — a theory of information processing, personality type and intertype relations in terms of psychological compatibility.
