Who? What? Why?

This is an experiment in the application of a blog to academic research in machine learning and learning theory by John Langford. Exactly where this experiment takes us and how the blog will turn out to be useful (or not) is one of those prediction problems we so dearly love in machine learning.

There are a number of other people who have contributed posts including Drew Bagnell, Sanjoy Dasgupta, Hal Daume, and Alex Gray. Posts, ideas for posts, and suggestions from other people will be actively considered—just email John Langford.
