Since you asked for feedback:
I haven’t read the alphafold paper yet, but your impressions are helpful to me personally, so thanks for writing it up. I liked the personal take and especially admitting what you don’t understand is nice to read, because reading papers is hard and not often acknowledged.
Cheers, let me get those edits in. Glad at least one person got a bit out of it.
Overview/review of the alpha fold paper that doesn’t require a lot of machine learning of molecular biology expertise to understand and can be read in 10 minutes.
I’m not sure I succeeded, it may well staddle the line poorly enough that it’s both uninteresting to someone familiar with the subject and unpenetrable to someone that isn’t.
But I almost wasted a whole day reading, writing, arguing, and editing to get this done. So I decided I have to post it somewhere to see what people think.
If you believe it’s too unrelated/abstract/bad then do let me know and I’ll delete it, I think I’ve been posting some mediocre articles here lately and I feel bad about it and want to stop, I appreciate the relative quality of this board as much as anyone. But it’s kind of hard to tell before I see people’s reactions, especially with stuff that you spend a lot of time writing.
