## Capstone Project

Interactive-learning (open-ended) project using a large Autism data tensor (n=1,098; k=2,145). Use the RMD source, the example HTML output, and the provided data to experiment with some of the DSPA techniques. Think of ways to augment these data (e.g., expand the time range and increase the feature richness).
