I have no formal training in machine learning but have a passion for computational/mathematical modeling. In an earlier life before becoming a developer, I was a theoretical physicist modeling experimental data. I do have industry experience working with data at Wolfram Alpha, but that work had less to do with analysis and more with the structuring and presentation of data. I'm in the process of teaching myself about machine learning techniques and tools.
Invited talks/presentations would be great. Getting people who are working in industry, applying these techniques to solve concrete problems, and then sharing those experiences. A weekend hackathon would also be something I'm interested in. I'm based in Champaign, so it is difficult for me to attend weekday events.
I'm a software engineer with a physics background.
