Hi Olly

I will try to work on :

I will be taking a Machine Learning class the next semester and I hope that
this project will help me supplement my learning in Machine Learning and
also gain a bit of knowledge in IR.

If you can give me ideas on how to get around with the code for LTR
project, it will be awesome. I can look at it and get back to you.

Thanks again!!!

Best Regards
Manu Gupta
