I'm looking for a topic for my masters thesis. Machine learning is my primary domain and I want to work on probabilistic models and applied probability in Machine Learning. Please suggest some exciting new topics that would make for a good masters thesis subject. Anything related to Markov chains Monte Carlo, Bayesian methods, Probabilistic graphical models, Markov models and so on in context of machine learning would be great!

Using this margin of error, calculate the chances that some catastrophic event will occur in n years (eg, an asteroid hitting the Earth) $\endgroup$ – user4710 Oct 27 '14 at 21:14
