I have given a number of talks on streaming algorithms and had requests for more depth on the material. I would like to expand my talks into a course, but in a true data-driven way I first want to gau...

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:
