Randomized Trees in Python

Summer 2009

During the UCSD Data Mining Contest 2009 I implemented and tuned my own classifier. I experimented with the level of randomness of trees and large forests and ended up with a hybrid of a bunch of different approaches.

Since the results using my trees and linear Support Vector Machines performed really well, I took the project online.


February 2009

As part of a Software Engineering-Methods lecture Mike Gist, Daniel Burrell, Dave Lawrence, Andrew Slater, and I developed a distributed whiteboard application.

The project became a lot more involved than we first thought, as we implemented a complete and branched history of every session and allowed all people to draw at the same time.

The project is still far from fun to use, but a lot of features are working very well. Have a look at the final report for details.
