 [unknown IMAGE 7101511240972] #has-images #recurrent-neural-networks #rnn 2.1. Model architecture To forecast future customer behavior, our model is trained using individual sequences of past transaction events, i.e., chronological accounts of a customer’s lifetime. The example in Table 2 describes one such customer’s transaction history over seven consecutive discrete time periods. 4 This particular individual makes a transaction in the first week, followed by one week of inactivity, then transacting for two consecutive weeks, and so on; in weeks 3 and 4 they also received some form of a marketing appeal. The two calendar components – the month and week indicators – represent time-varying contextual information which is shared across the individuals within a given cohort. In addition, in this example, we include also an individual time-invariant covariate (gender) and a time-varying, individual-level covariate (marketing appeals). This particular customer history can then be represented as a sequence of vectors with five elements: the input variable plus the four covariates. Individual-level covariates are strictly optional – in our empirical study, the Base model is built without any such variables. Whenever individual covariates are included, we label the model Extended. Note that the model is completely agnostic about further extensions: all individual-level, cohort-level, time-varying, or time-invariant covariates are simply encoded as categorical input variables, and are handled equally by the model. This property makes our model extremely flexible in dealing with diverse customer behaviors observed across multiple contexts and platforms

Designing discoverable notes

A note-first approach to knowledge management means we have to think about design. You are, in a very real sense, designing a product for a demanding customer — Future You.

Future You doesn’t necessarily trust that everything Past You put into your notes is valuable. Future You is impatient and skeptical, demanding proof upfront that the time they spend reviewing notes will be worthwhile. You’ve gotta “sell them” on the idea of reviewing a given note, including all the stages any salesperson has to master: gaining attention, inspiring interest, establishing credibility, stoking desire, and making a case for action NOW.

In the note above, for example, the information it contains is highly discoverable — I can get the gist of it with just a glance.

Progressive Summarization: A Practical Technique for Designing Discoverable Notes - Forte Labs
y — you may be making the wrong decision about what’s important. But with the safety net of multiple layers of preserved notes, you can strike out decisively on daring intellectual expeditions. <span>And finally, for a tiny minority of sources, the ones that are so powerful and exciting I want them to become part of how I think and work immediately, I remix them. After pulling them apart and dissecting them from every angle in layers 1–4, I add my own personality and creativity and turn them into something else. <img data-lazy-fallback="1" class="progressiveMedia-image js-progressiveMedia-image aligncenter" src="https://i0.wp.com/cdn-images-1.medium.com/max/800/1*cs4WrYZDSERqIfHJBZoflQ.jpeg?

 Progressive Summarization #Tiago_Forte Not only is it okay if I don’t remember the vast majority of what I read, that actually becomes my goal. I want to offload what I’ve learned as quickly as possible, so I can forget it as quickly as possible. I want my mind to be an empty vessel, a staging ground where ideas briefly stop in their journey from the outside world, to my second brain.

" /> Mind as staging ground With a method in hand for rapidly capturing knowledge and compressing it into multi-layered packets for easy retrieval, the whole game of learning is transformed. <span>Not only is it okay if I don’t remember the vast majority of what I read, that actually becomes my goal.

To leave my mind free and clear for each new experience, while also building something that lasts. <span>Here’s the crucial thing to understand: I don’t summarize notes on any sort of schedule, in any particular order, or as a part of a workflow. I summarize them completely opportunistically, when I’m already reviewing the note for some other purpose anyway. This seems to be very hard for most people to understand, or to trust. It runs contrary to everything we’ve been taught about knowledge as some sort of fungible commodity, like oil or s

 Progressive Summarization #Tiago_Forte A given note may not be summarized until months or years after it’s been captured. Many notes may never be summarized. This is not just acceptable, it is absolutely fundamental to focusing your attention primarily on your most valuable notes. This is how your first brain works: use it or lose it. You have to be comfortable not only letting things fall through the cracks, but placing the cracks strategically so notes that don’t end up being useful automatically recede from your attention.
