Ugly Duckling theorem

Yes, I know, my last post said that I would be shifting my blog from wordpress to a Jekyll Hugo based blog hosted with Github pages. But I’m procrastinating. Anyway, putting that aside, let’s get to the meat of the post. Check out the Ugly duckling theorem. It’s pretty dope. I encountered it in the introductory lecture slides for the course on Machine Learning I’m doing right now(yikes! ML ooh).

Yeah, don’t judge me. I’m not doing ML because EVERYONE is doing ML but because I need to complete a couple of courses from a subset of CS courses to get my CS degree from IITK and it so happens that among those courses, ML is the most theoretical(the other courses are mostly from systems and I (sort of) despise systems courses).
