KDD 2014

August 28, 2014

My first KDD conference in a while!

Swapnil Mishra and I had to go to present our paper, “Experiments with Non-parametric Topic Models” (… a link to the ACM page … we paid a lot of money to make this paper available free for all).  The conference slides we presented are here, and the software is available on MLOSS called hca.  The talk on is up now.

Also ran into Aaron Li and Alex Smola who spoke after us.  I really have to implement their trick!
