-Met up with Mike, David, Tom, Lex

-Tom: would be interested in giving class on interesting topics in stats

-David: interested in stats, R, can give info on R

-Looking to come up with interesting group projects

-Talked about setting up a projects page (will do soon)

-Talked about using Doodle for event scheduling

-Tom mentioned MTG project to figure out what a good pick would be to make on each trial

-Came up with a list of topics to potentially discuss:

  • Linear Regression
  • Linear Discriminants
  • Decision Theory (Bayesian)
  • Maximum Likelihood
  • Neural Nets/Radial Basis Functions
  • Bias/Variance Tradeoff, VC Dimension
  • Clustering/PCA
  • Graphical Modeling
  • Support Vector Machines
  • k-Means Clustering
  • Reinforcement Learning
  • Bagging (Bootstrapping), Jacknifing
  • Generative Models: gaussian distribution, multinomial distributions, HMMs, Naive Bayes
