Subject: [Learn] Proposed Thesis
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"
Good morning. As I was writing on facebook, we have been given a go
ahead to do a masters thesis on machine learning on fossils to build
cladiagraphs. I have some rudimentary understanding of the topic, but
not much in terms of detail or understanding how paleontologist build
such diagrams mapping proposed evolutionary relationships today.
I've been pointed to the basic text Inferring Phylogenies by Joe
Felsenstein which I ordered.
I'm interested in the methodology you use, especially with the T-Rex
article you did here:
I expect to publish all our work at http://www.nylxs.com/thesis/
I'm very interested in openscience and we will likely try to restrict
our projects to Free Software. I'm particularly interested in mapping
algorithms being developed and applied to these problems, and
integrating the increasing use of scanned 3d images for systematic
analysis, such as what was done for the Trix TRex in Leiden.
So many immigrant groups have swept through our town
that Brooklyn, like Atlantis, reaches mythological
proportions in the mind of the world - RI Safir 1998

Being so tracked is for FARM ANIMALS and and extermination camps,
but incompatible with living as a free human being. -RI Safir 2013
