I'm gauging interest in a course on streaming algorithms. If you'd like to know more, full details are on my blog, including a link to pre-register. If I get enough people signed up, the course will go ahead.

Video of my talk on the application of bandit algorithms to internet marketing -- why you should replace A/B testing, and how bandit algorithms work in theory and practice.

A talk I gave recently on bandit algorithms, and why you should care about them if you're doing marketing online (aka "growth hacking"). Aimed at a fairly non-technical audience. No equations!

Thompson Sampling is a very simple Bayesian algorithm for solving the bandit problem. It is also surprisingly good and very robust. If you're going to read one paper this one on Thompson Sampling is a good choice:

Performing acronym expansion on ROPE (region of practical equivalence) led to some interesting work I haven't seen before. Thanks!
