Object tracking is pretty easy conceptually. And if you have a good detector, simple methods can be pretty effective.

Cross entropy loss in PyTorch can be a little confusing. Here is a simple explanation of how it works for people who get stuck.

You can do vectorized pairwise distance calculations in NumPy (without using SciPy). This lets you extend pairwise computations to other kinds of functions.

DAGs are everywhere in scientific computing and understanding them is key to running large computations efficiently.
