What is your background in Machine Learning (e.g. what was your major, how long have you been studying related topics, do you use similar methodologies for work)?

My background is mainly that of a "web application developer" turned "data scientist". For the past 8 months, I've been exploring and implementing a variety of machine learning algorithms and techniques, mainly around classification through clustering.

What types of meetings would you like from the ML Meetup? (presentations, interactive study sessions, hackathons, etc.)

I would a mixture of all of these things, honestly. While I have an inclination towards things like interactive study sessions and hackathons, I definitely see a lot of value in presentations.

Introduction

I'm a co-founder and current CTO of Food Genius, a Chicago-based business intelligence provider for the food industry. With the evolution of Food Genius over the past 18 months, I've stumbled into the necessity of machine learning.
