Project Discussions, User Ids

Today’s meeting was mostly sharing and discussing project ideas:

Visualization Projects: Konrad is working with housing availability data, and changes in Facebook friendship over time.

Twitter Data: Lisa is working on visualizing twitter user growth, and used the data to attempt to show that user ids are not random: although it is easy to do, one should not sample users by the modulo of the user id by some number. [Separate post pending]

News Data: Gobi and Samson talked about their work (and project ideas) clustering news, and methods for using supervised learning when labeled data is difficult to obtain.

Next meeting will be next Tuesday Nov 15th at 3pm in the Stats Club Office M3 3109.
