I've finally spent enough time reading your thesis to feel comfortable
asking a couple questions :) First though, I have to say that the extent of
what you accomplished in your implementation is very impressive. It looks
like you went the way.
I am not sure about what you are using for SMS data - or how you transform
the data you are working with based on the feature map you have calculated.
Could you help me understand this?
