@sonney2kblackburn, any comments to ?21:55
@sonney2kI would now send this around to mentors for double checking...21:55
blackburnsonney2k: no, but going to update multiclass thing in next hour21:56
blackburnwell feel free to send, this one is for you21:56
blackburnsonney2k: did you get any answer from alex binder?21:57
@sonney2kblackburn, ?21:58
@sonney2kabout what?21:58
blackburnwell you were unsure about him?21:59
@sonney2kwhat should I have asked hiim?21:59
@sonney2kI asked him weeks ago and said he is still up to it21:59
blackburnah then did wiking get an answer?21:59
blackburnbtw where is he :(21:59
@sonney2kwiking was supposed to send him an email + cc me21:59
@sonney2kdidn't receive any email yet...21:59
@sonney2kso no idea21:59
blackburnI mean he is probably very good choice for this task22:00
@sonney2kblackburn, considering that you already work with code he contributed - yes :)22:00
blackburnhah yeah22:01
blackburnI think we have good ideas22:03
blackburnlesser than last year but more focused22:03
blackburnsonney2k: what do you think should has priority? ecoc or trees?22:11
@sonney2kI think having less is better22:11
@sonney2kblackburn, I think ovr / ovo / and then the nips paper stuff (trees)22:12
blackburnI am for ecoc, but it is mainly up to you22:13
blackburnwhy did you include cheng soon? :)22:13
-!- axitkhurana [~akshit@] has joined #shogun22:14
@sonney2kblackburn, what is up with cheng?22:16
@sonney2kblackburn, arent' trees just a special case of ecoc?22:16
blackburnI just curious what is he is interested22:16
blackburnno, I'd say no22:16
@sonney2klook at the idea - then you know :)22:17
blackburnoh damn22:17
blackburnhow did I miss it?22:17
@sonney2kblackburn, IIRC ecoc is just a general name to convert any multiclass problem into a sequence of 2 class problems22:18
blackburnyes but I don't think tree and ecoc principles are the same22:18
blackburnI can't imagine hamming distance thing on trees22:19
@sonney2kblackburn, look at
@sonney2kovo is one ecoc principle :)22:21
blackburnyes but trees are not..22:21
@sonney2kblackburn, they are, cf. 2.1.222:22
blackburnok I was wrong then22:23
@sonney2kso I guess porting that ecoc library over from octave would be the real task with some subtle hard stuff22:25

blackburnsonney2k: will you write down anything into vojtech's idea?22:30
-!- ishaanmlhtr [~chatzilla@] has joined #shogun22:31
@sonney2kblackburn, vojtech will do - he was just busy with ICML deadline22:31
@sonney2ksubmission that is22:31
blackburnah I see22:31
blackburnwhen do you plan to submit?22:31
@sonney2kthe day the submission thing is open22:32
@sonney2k...and then polish - as usual22:32
blackburnwhy do you hurry?22:33
@sonney2kno hurry22:35
axitkhuranaHi, I don't have much experience in ML, I would like to learn and contribute.22:52
blackburnsonney2k: still here?22:52
blackburnaxitkhurana: hi22:52
axitkhuranablackburn: I have done some work in python (and django)22:53
axitkhuranaCould you suggest where to start?22:53
blackburndo you have any ml experience?22:54
axitkhurananot much.22:55
blackburnok let me think22:56
blackburnso you want to study ML or rather to contribute into non-ML parts of shogun?22:57
axitkhuranaI'd like to study ML.22:58
blackburnokay I see22:59
blackburnhave you checked examples?22:59
axitkhuranaAlthough I would not mind contributing to non-ML parts too.22:59
axitkhuranaNot yet.22:59
blackburnok while you have python example23:00
blackburnerr experience :)23:00
blackburnyou could do following23:00
blackburninstall shogun/try some examples23:01
blackburnthen you may implement some simple graphical example with downloader23:01
axitkhuranaok,  I've installed shogun23:01
axitkhuranaI'll try some examples23:02
blackburnwhen you could generalize to UCI repo23:04
blackburni.e. user would be able to choose dataset, download data and approach the problem with shogun23:04
blackburnis the idea clear for you?23:04
axitkhuranathanks, I'll try a few examples and get back to you.23:09
