  • youtube video scanning of questions with elon - categorising the questions

  • model different models competing against each other in fake assets markets and see who wins/ get most returns

  • case studies of where data science has worked

  • reinforcement learning in a game with changing rules. i.e. learning how to learn

  • rather than hyperlinks like google or articles like wikipedia, build sorta mind maps for topics, which can then be trained upon to generate abstractions. it would be interseting if you had umm sorta particles interacting with each other if they would generate the same words for things as we swould so if particles moved aroudn and ate food and talked and coordinated, if those particles would generate abstractions for communication in the same way.

  • unsupervised learning based database, where store elements and then it looks for relationships between elements.

  • software to help management of staff/project management thinking about incentives etc. thinking about stakeholders

  • anti-book recommender

  • rather than trying to improve the learnign algorithms, what about trying to improve the quality of the data? obvious example is if trying to differentiate between a cat and a dog spend a lot of time looking at examples that are close to the boundary, i.e. where there is a higher probaiblity of misclassifying. but you can take it further and ask how to learn higher levels of abstraction, can you learn on the abstract data. so machine learning models always have the raw data and have to learn from scratch, but humans learn history etc. reading about the abstractions direclty, i guess this is transfer learning, but that is a function of the model, rather than the data? maybe learning is transfering hte model not the data that hte model was run on?
