    Stevan Hall Mejia Faculty Mentor Geoffrey Cox The City of Lexington is located in Rockbridge County Virginia The city owns and operates 27 buildings with 42 separate energy accounts 13 natural gas and 29 electric Prior to our project all records of these accounts were handwritten documents kept within city hall penciled in by a city employee The goals of the project were to first take this information and put it in a digital state and then provide a tool to analyze the data in question Our tool allows the city to quickly access visual models of each building s energy consumption so that improvements can be made and inefficiencies addressed By looking at the visual models the city can increase its overall sustainability providing economic environmental and social benefits to the community Data Mining in Major League Baseball Sponsor VMI Summer Undergraduate Research Initiative Cadet Researcher Will Lucas Faculty Mentor John David Data Mining has become an increasingly popular technique in science economics business and sports especially a sport with as rich data as baseball In this project we mined millions of baseball statistics to predict which teams will win on a day to day basis as well as over entire seasons We focused on statistical techniques of regression artificial neural networks and decision trees Real Interest Rate Prediction using Supervised and Unsupervised Learning Techniques Real Interest Rate Predictionusing Supervised and Unsupervised Learning Techniques Sponsor National Science Foundation Researcher Robert Michie Advisor Atin Basuchoudhary and John David This project examines factors of political risk and theirability to influence and predict real interest rates Various data miningtechniques were used on the ICRG researcher dataset for political risk whichis made up of 12 weighted components The dataset contains data from the years1984 to 2008 for 37 countries Unsupervised learning techniques were used inorder to find hidden structures within the data itself while supervisedlearning techniques were used to make future predictions of the real interestrate The key points of this work arethat money growth is not a good predictor of real interest rates as well asthe fact that a committee of artificial neural networks proved to best thestrongest model in terms of predictive performance and finally that there arecertain political risk factors that are indicative of changes in real interestrates NBA Data Mining and Predictive Modeling Sponsor VMI Cadet Researcher James T Snyder Advisor John A David Virginia Military Institute June 20 2013 In this project we explore the importance of data in the process of making predictions of outcomes of National Basketball Association NBA games We use NBA statistics for the 2004 2005 season up to and including the 2010 2011 season We utilize unsupervised learning techniques to gain an informed understanding of our data and how it operates These techniques include Clustering Principal Component Analysis and Factor Analysis We learn predictive capabilities and the different ways in which the statistics impact the outcome of an NBA game We also use supervised learning techniques to build models in order to make
