Robert Ackroyd had some nice phrasing around the connections between statistical estimation theory and inverse problem solving.
I thought I had something to say about this general perspective on inverse problems, but I don’t yet.
Interesting specific framings
Leaning to reconstruct has an interesting partly-learned, partly designed reconstruction operator trick.
