MS797 Glossary underway

The other big glossary for this semester is underway.

Steve Linberg

The term’s other major glossary, for MS797, Machine Learning for Social Science, is up. At this point it’s about halfway through chapter 3… lots to go. This was initially in a standalone repo, but I think it makes more sense to migrate it here.

Again, comments, clarifications or corrections are all welcome.
