+The material in the lecture was taken from the recent work Bob and I have been doing on [information, divergence and risk][idr]. As the summer school is aimed at new PhD students, I tried to pitch the material at a suitable level. Upon reflection, I think I probably aimed the level of the material a little too high. For example, I could have spent more time explaining what a Bayes risk was and why it is so important. I also feel as though I rushed over some of the later material, partly because I realised that I had incorrectly assumed the audience's background knowledge and partly because I was running out of steam at the end of three hours.
