This work explores the modelling of a user’s current activity using a single document and a very small collection of classified documents. We describe the WeMAC approach for combining evidence from heterogeneous sources to give a prdict the user’s activity. We report evaluation of the WeMAC model using two different document types: emails and web pages; assess its performance on both tiny document sets and larger sets; and assess its performance against a “one bag” approach. We report promising results, with average F1 value of 0.5-0.7.

Can you help me with my computer? I am not a programmer and my Gmail stopped working this morning. I would really love to follow tips from this lecture! But damn it, I can't!

Sad to hear that. But to be honest, I am not a programmer either. And my wife doesn't know computer at all. Perhaps this is because of our age. What I found for you was also so if in the end of the day you will find out that you still can't fix it with the help of code helper, you can read the post and try another way.
