Now on Twitter
28 October, 2009 § 3 Comments
In the pursuit of writing my next blog post, I’ve wanted to look in to some of the research that was mentioned at StackOverflow DevDays in Toronto, but have been unable to find what I’ve been looking for.
So I created an account on Twitter and asked Joel for his citation. Fittingly, this goes right along with what Greg Wilson was preaching, and I hope that it was just a coincidence, but I do give him credit for re-energizing me and everyone else in the room.
My goal is to look at a study that Joel mentioned in his opening keynote. He brought up a study that was conducted in a California grocery store where shoppers were presented with either 6 or 24 samples of jelly.
|# of flavors||% stopped||% purchased|
I would like to use the naive Bayes theorem to turn this situation around and ask the question, “Given that a customer was going to purchase, what effect did the number of flavors presented have?”
If you haven’t noticed, I’m really loving this Data Mining class I’m taking.
