Personality plug-in for Eudora

The Personality plug-in for Eudora adds 3 stereotypical “personalities” to your Message Plug-ins menu in Eudora 3.x and 4.x for Windows. It translates English messages into either mock Swedish (like the Swedish Chef on the Muppet Show), mock Jive (a black dialect of the 70s), or B1FF-speak (a fictitious person who is “new” on the ‘Net who spells poorly and […]

Java Network File System

The Java Network File System was my Honors Thesis project at Brown University and second place winner for the 1997 ACM Quest for Java student programming contest. README See my contest README for an overview of the project and instructions for running the server and client. Paper We introduce and discuss the Java Network File System ( JNFS), a network file system for Network […]

Nearest-Neighbor Machine Learning Bakeoff

Introduction This document presents the results from my Topics in Machine Learning final project at Brown University, written in December 1996. The project was a “bakeoff” for machine learning algorithms that learned classification problems (categories instead of continuous functions). I discuss my implementation and results for Nearest-Neighbor and k-Nearest-Neighbor, two well-known machine learning algorithms, on three classification datasets. In addition, I […]

wine results (Nearest-Neighbor Machine Learning Bakeoff)

Wine Recognition Data from Forina, M. et al at the Institute of Pharmaceutical and Food Analysis and Technologies. Each record represents results of a chemical analysis of wines grown in the same region in Italy but derived from three different cultivars. The analysis determined the quantities of 13 constituents found in each of the three types […]

breast-cancer-wisconsin results (Nearest-Neighbor Machine Learning Bakeoff)

Wisconsin Breast Cancer from Dr. William H. Wolberg at the University of Wisconsin Hospitals, Madison. Records in the dataset represent the results of breast cytology tests and a diagnosis of benign or malignant. Attributes include clump thickness, uniformity of cell size, uniformity of cell shape, marginal adhesion, single epithelial cell size, bare nuclei, bland chromatin, normal […]
