Applications of Prediction Technology

It is interesting to learn how predictive technologies are being applied. Below are links to some cases which may prove instructive as well as novel:

An Empirical Study of Machine Learning Algorithms
Applied to Modeling Player Behavior in a “First Person Shooter” Video Game
, Masters thesis by Benjamin Geisler

Using Machine Learning to Break Visual Human Interaction Proofs (HIPs), by Kumar Chellapilla and Patrice Y. Simard

Spatial Clustering Of Chimpanzee Locations For Neighborhood
, by Sandeep Mane, Carson Murray, Shashi Shekhar, Jaideep Srivastava and Anne Pusey

Are You HOT or NOT?, by Jim Hefner and Roddy Lindsay

Predicting Student Performance, by Behrouz Minaei-Bidgoli, Deborah A. Kashy, Gerd Kortemeyer, William F. Punch

Discrimination of Hard-to-pop Popcorn Kernels by Machine Vision and Neural Networks, by W. Yang, P. Winter, S. Sokhansanj, H. Wood and B. Crerer

Predicting habitat suitability with machine learning
, by Marta Benito Garzón, Radim Blazek, Markus Neteler, Rut Sánchez de Dios, Helios Sainz Ollero and Cesare Furlanello

It is not necessary to read such cases from end-to-end to benefit from them. Glance through these to pick up what tips you may. Happy hunting!
