Summer Research Opportunity Machine Learning

Project Summary: Students will learn the basics of neural networks as well as some standard algorithms for turning documents into vectors.  These things will be learned while working on the project described below:

The arXiv is a preprint repository for academic articles in several disciplines, including mathematics.  When submitting a preprint, the user is asked to classify their article into one of the given fields and subfields represented on the arXiv.  The arXiv recently released an API that will attempt to automatically determine this classification.  The goal of the project will be to see if we can produce a model based on neural networks that beats their in-house classification.
