Levy processes are random measures that give independent mass to independent increments. I will show how they can be used to model various types of data such as binary vectors or vectors of counts, with applications to text and images. These techniques fall in the category of nonparametric Bayesian methods, and are related to the better known Dirichlet process. ©2008 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

For the first fifteen years of the Computer Chronicles, when it was still hard to find technology news on television, each episode would end with a five minute summary of the week's personal computer news. Reporters presenting Random Access each week included Maria Gabriel, Kate Megargee, Cynthia Steele, Wendy Woods, Janelle Stelson, and Laurie Anderson. These are examples of some of those broadcasts. Many others are found at the end of Computer Chronicles episodes archived on this site.
