Minimum Message Length and Kolmogorov Complexity
This work attempts to establish a parallel between a restricted (two-part) version of the Kolmogorov model and the minimum message length approach to statistical inference and machine learning of Wallace and Boulton (1968), in which an ‘explanation’ of a data string is modelled as a two-part message.
Are there subgroups within the autistic spectrum? A cluster analysis of a group of children with autistic spectrum disorders.

Although subgroups were identified which bore some relationship to clinical differentiation of autistic, Asperger syndrome, and Pervasive Developmental Disorder Not Otherwise Specified (PDD-NOS) cases, the nature of the differences appeared strongly related to ability variables.
MML clustering of multi-state, Poisson, von Mises circular and Gaussian distributions
This work outlines how MML is used for statistical parameter estimation, and how the MML mixture modelling program, Snob, uses the message lengths from various parameter estimates to enable it to combine parameter estimation with selection of the number of components and estimation of the relative abundances of the components.
Measuring universal intelligence: Towards an anytime intelligence test
A computer program capable of passing I.Q. tests
A fairly elementary WWW-based computer program is presented here a fairly elementary I.Q. test which regularly obtains a score close to the purported average human score of 100, and is briefly considered to ascribe intelligence to the program.
Depression among nursing home elders: testing an intervention strategy.
Intrinsic classification by MML - the Snob program
Some applications of Snob are surveyed, and some documentation on how the user can guide Snob through various models of the givendata to try to obtain that model whose message length is a minimum is provided.
Bayesian Estimation of the Von Mises Concentration Parameter
The von Mises distribution is a maximum entropy distribution. It corresponds to the distribution of an angle of a compass needle in a uniform magnetic field of direction, μ, with concentration…
The Melbourne Family Grief Study, I: Perceptions of family functioning in bereavement.
Family types can be identified, allowing at-risk families to be helped to prevent complications of grief, and Screening with the family relationship index of the Family Environment Scale would facilitate such a family-centered approach.
The Melbourne Family Grief Study, II: Psychosocial morbidity and grief in bereaved families.

- PsychologyAmerican Journal of Psychiatry
Sullen families displayed the most intense grief and the most severe psychosocial morbidity, and well-functioning families resolved their grief and adjusted more adaptively than their dysfunctional counterparts (intermediate, sullen, and hostile families).
