EGT Reading Group 21 – 30

Although we don’t post summarizes of papers we read in the reading group nearly often enough, one of the goals of this blog is to provide a second medium for the EGT Reading Group I started at McGill University in 2010. Today we had our 30th reading group, and to celebrate I decided to post the references for papers we’ve read since our last update.

As you can tell, we haven’t written post about most of the papers we’ve reviewed. However, if you’d like to see a specific paper on this list reviewed and summarized then let me know in the comments!

About Artem Kaznatcheev
From the Department of Computer Science at Oxford University and Department of Translational Hematology & Oncology Research at Cleveland Clinic, I marvel at the world through algorithmic lenses. My mind is drawn to evolutionary dynamics, theoretical computer science, mathematical oncology, computational learning theory, and philosophy of science. Previously I was at the Department of Integrated Mathematical Oncology at Moffitt Cancer Center, and the School of Computer Science and Department of Psychology at McGill University. In a past life, I worried about quantum queries at the Institute for Quantum Computing and Department of Combinatorics & Optimization at University of Waterloo and as a visitor to the Centre for Quantum Technologies at National University of Singapore. Meander with me on Google+ and Twitter.
