A challenge, and some Groovy

Peter Reutemann poses a challenge! He also demonstrates Groovy, an alternative scripting language, and uses it to replicate some Python scripts.

We begin by looking at a real-world challenge: the IDRC (International Diffuse Reflectance Conference) Shootout challenge. The training data – called “calibration data” – and test data is linked to below. The challenge is tough: in the step that follows the upcoming quiz Peter talks about his solution, and how he arrived at it. Then, as a second part, we look at another scripting language called “Groovy” and use it to replicate two of the earlier Python scripts.
