Resist the temptation to google for a solution. If you discover the pattern early, please resist the temptation to share the answer.
You might want to watch this (~20 min) first.
Given this list of names(csv, sqlite), can you discover what it is about them that results in each name being labeled as "winner" or "loser?" Using a data mining tool of your choice, can you build a model that can predict whether or not you are a "winner" or "loser?"
Winners in the dataset are labeled with a +. Losers, a -.
Write a brief paper that describes the process you undertook while trying to discover if patterns exist, and what those patterns are. Your paper should "tell a story": it must be clear to the reader exactly what actions you took and why. Include screenshots, summary stats and other measures of your results, where relevant.

You must have committed and pushed a copy of your paper, which effectively summarizes the data mining process you undertook.
