I waddled onto the beach and stole found a computer to use.

  • Do you have a link to the survival PDFs? I’m curious

    I have a few apps like that installed, such as first aid for example. Might as well get some useful guides on my USB in case my phone is dead.

    Also my recommendation

    • portable programs. Pick some that might be useful and add those. I have never had to use one, but I keep them anyways

    • Some media to pass the time. This has come in handy once or twice

    • extra space for large file transfers

    Who should read this

    Do you want to understand exactly how AlphaFold3 works? The architecture is quite complicated and the description in the paper can be overwhelming, so we made a much more friendly (but just as detailed!) visual walkthrough.

    This is mostly written for an ML audience and multiple points assume familiarity with the steps of attention. If you’re rusty, see Jay Alammar’s The Illustrated Transformer for a thorough visual explanation. That post is one of the best explanations of a model architecture at the level of individual matrix operations and also the inspiration for the diagrams and naming.

    There are already many great explanations of the motivation for protein structure prediction, the CASP competition, model failure modes, debates about evaluations, implications for biotech, etc. so we don’t focus on any of that. Instead we explore the how.

    How are these molecules represented in the model and what are all of the operations that convert them into a predicted structure?







  • At some point I think I’m going to write a post about nice behaviour here. I have to think about it some more… And this is a diverse place anyways, other people might like different things.

    I’d read something like that :)

    Sometimes we also don’t think about how we could be doing something better. Another thing that comes to mind, which I sometimes forget, is upvoting the post that you are commenting on. Usually if I’m commenting, I want more people to see and join the discussion, but I forget to upvote before leaving the tab
