Seminar in Computational Statistics:
Recent articles in computational learning and computational statistics
Fridays 4:00pm -- 5:00pm
West Building, Room 1008
The seminar will be conducted in the form a journal club.
Students who are enrolled in the class will be required to make
two 30-to-45-minute presentations each summarizing a recent article in computational
learning or computational statistics. ("Recent" means 2005 or later.)
The presentations can be simple summaries, or, preferably, critical reviews
citing other work or possible approaches.
- August 31
