- The relationship between the bias-variance tradeoff and ensemble methods from this lecture. This is a nicely framed discussion of ensemble methods that I hadn't seen before.
Lying Words: Predicting Deception From Linguistic Styles. This paper describes a common pattern of language use in deceptive story-telling: Less self-reference. More negative emotion words. Less cognitive complexity.
I'm looking forward to verifying these claims on some old deception data. And taking a look at debate transcripts through this lens.
