Caching / Forgetting

Is a crucial part of computers, human memory, as well as organizing data or your papers on your desk.

  • Random eviction: is not half bad, as the most important things keep getting back in
  • First In, First Out (FIFO): it’s essentially a queue kicking the oldest things out of the memory
  • Least Recently Used (LRU): evicting the item that’s gone the longest untouched (so technically a pile of papers on your desk, is an efficient way of organizing paper if you put the latest always on top)

Ideally, you have a couple of different caches which are organized by category, so you shorten the path of access and don’t have to wade through all information every time.

Optimal Stopping

When you are hiring, scouting houses to buy, options to consider — when should you stop looking?
