Kick-off Meeting

For our first meeting, I'm suggesting that we start with a couple of older canonical papers, one from industry and one from academia:

1) Estimating the Number of Unseen Species (How many words did Shakespeare Know?) by Bradley Efron and Ronald Thisted of Stanford University Biostatistics Dept., July 1975

2) MapReduce: Simplified Data Processing on Large Clusters by Jeffrey Dean and Sanjay Ghemawat of Google, December 2004


We should also discuss how we want to choose papers for future meetings at the first meetup.

I hope you are able to join us!

    Hi Angi
    This is a nice paper about boosted regression tree.
    Do you know any good paper which explain why ensemble learning works the way it is?? Please keep that in mind. I am computer science background, but trying to read some stats.

    Great idea for a meetup! Coincidentally I read the Dean/Ghemawat paper a few weeks ago. I cannot make the kick-off meeting because I will be at the SIGGRAPH conference that week (plus it is already oversubscribed) but look forward to joining you in the future.

    My two cents - I suggest we go in a systematic way - Data Sourcing, Data Preparation, Exploratory Data Analysis etc.. so that we build up a thread.
