Cold stations and carriages that can take you everywhere. To some it takes home, for some it takes
them away, some just sit throughout and some just takes an early out. Each eye filled with hope, trying
to colour their destination away. Some looking through you, and some glazing inside everyday. Boarding
with hope and deboarding is just a sigh away. Perplexities of desire, guilt, joy travels together everyday
here, in this carriage of hope. Each soul boarding with a baggage of their life, taking care of it
cautiously, trying not to lose it to the mist. To protect the shells people hence express energies that
intrigues me every now and then. Metro in Delhi holds my heart for mystery, observation and my
interpretation of faces.

I've been studying data science lately.
It's funny because you see, data science basically tries to make computers behave like humans, at least a major chunk of it works toward that goal. Yet, the more I study it, the more I have started understanding how humans work.
I guess it's difficult to judge the human experience from our bird's eye view of it - it feels complex and annoying and just chaotic - but if you start seeing things as individual problems, it gets simpler.
For example, when you make choices, you're just doing a decision tree. When you're making decisions based on experience, you're just solving a classification problem. When you're trying to figure out who is important and who isn't, you're clustering.
Jargons, I know. Sorry for the math overwhelm.
Still, I want to get this thought out there. Data science tries to emulate human behaviour. Yet, I've felt it has brought me better clarity somewhat on how a human sees things.
The way I see it, all we're really trying to do at the end of the day is figure out the answer to this one question for countless problems - which side of the line do I lie on?
That's data science.
