Talk at Columbia Business School
People are idiots.
I spoke this morning about prediction algorithms and NCAA basketball for Mark Brodie’s class at Columbia’s Business School. Also speaking was Ed Kaplan of Operations Research fame.
Here are my slides, much of which was built from joint work with Greg in the Kaggle contest. There are also extensions to other things in life that I like, such as upset pools, game theory, and extensions/extrapolations to sports analytics as a whole.
