Hello, all!  There was a good meeting today where we talked about the KDD
dataset and plans for the next steps.  I think it'll be a really good
opportunity for learning new tools and methods on machine learning, trading
knowledge and upping our collective ability!  We've got plans to look at R,
libsvm, weka, and Hadoop to tackle the problem.  I'm excited about working
with it, and anyone else who wants to get involved should email me, download
the data, and take a look at the wiki page I've put our initial plans in:

Next week, Vikarem will be presenting Hadoop, with some scripts and tools to
actually use it -- I think we're all aware of how important Hadoop already
is and will continue to be in the future for analyzing large data sets, so
I'm really glad that we've now got someone who knows about it and is willing
to tell us more!  I think this is a really great opportunity, and many
thanks to Vikarem for presenting!


Best wishes,
Thomas
