go-linq is an anti-pattern library to address a lack of language-integrated collection querying and comprehension functionality in Go. I initially wrote it to see if it would be actually nice to have.

This post is a spin-off from various conversations around improving the way logging is performed in Go projects.

A self-organizing map (SOM) or self-organizing feature map (SOFM) is a type of artificial neural network (ANN) that is trained using unsupervised learning to produce a low-dimensional (typically two-dimensional), discretized representation of the input space of the training samples, called a map, and is therefore a method to do dimensionality reduction. Self-organizing maps differ from other artificial neural networks as they apply competitive learning as opposed to error-correction learning (such as backpropagation with gradient descent), and in the sense that they use a neighborhood function to preserve the topological properties of the input space.
