Chris Hundt is a software engineer at Judicata.
is a web site where I tracked recent federal appellate court decisions and do some machine learning to tag them. See related research below. You can download the source code here
Spring 2008: I did some research into machine learning techniques for topic classification of legal opinions. I applied the results to Robocourt.com
. Here are some write-ups:
- a paper describing a basic discriminative-learning approach and how well various techniques work
- a poster summarizing the above results
- a paper going into methods of using citation structure to strengthen the results
Fall 2007: I created a Visualization of Gibbs Sampling on Social Networks
where you can see Gibbs sampling in action. (Warning: Java)
In the Fall 2006 semester Ariel Kleiner and I studied the modeling of server power usage by the tasks it is performing. Our results are summarized in a poster we produced, Workload-Based Power Usage Modeling
At McGill I worked in the Reasoning and Learning Laboratory
under the supervision of Prakash Panangaden
and Doina Precup
In 2006 I co-authored Representing Systems with Hidden State
, which appeared in AAAI 2006, with these professors and Joelle Pineau
In the fall of 2005 I received second prize in McGill's Undergraduate Research Conference
for two posters I presented, Some interesting features of convergent random variables
and Duality in Transition Systems
Here is a page about Predictive State Representations
that I compiled.
Stuff Chris Made
Motion Coherence Demonstration
This Java applet was made to demonstrate the "aperture problem". The idea is that when you see two gratings moving in different directions through an aperture, you perceive it as one grid. This can change, depending on various parameters, which you can play with using my applet.
Analysis 3 review
I made this summary of the material covered in K. GowriSankaran
's MATH 354 class. I left out the linear algebra material that was covered in MATH 251.
This is a Perl script that logs into Minerva and checks your grades for you. It requires WWW::Mechanize and Crypt::SSLeay to be installed. To use it, download the script, fill in the login information and then run
grades.perl [semester] [# of classes]
filling in the number of the semester you want to check and the number of classes you took that semester. I made this because I don't like going through the whole login process every time I want to check if my grades have been updated yet.
Here are links to pages where you will find a few assignments I did during freshman year. Notice the progression from MS Word to LaTeX :)
