Occam's Hammer

John Langford blogged about Occam's Hammer, which I've started reading. I agree with John that this is an interesting new way of proving tight generalization bounds, which is on my mind because of some papers we submitted for publication recently.

What's new in my research?

I'll be blogging here what research papers I am reading and what I have written, with very little commentary. I don't know if it will be useful, but I would find it very useful if researchers I follow had such blogs, so I decided to do my bit.
