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)?

I have been studying ML since 2009 as part of my PhD in ML and NLP at DePaul university, and I have been working as a Data Scientist since June 2013. Prior to that, I used some data mining and machine learning algorithms in my Master's thesis, and have been following the subject with interest ever since, although not formally until I returned to academia. I have also made several futile attempts to apply ML to predict the stock market.

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

Presentations are great, some hackathons or interactive study sessions once in a while would be good too.


I am a Data Scientist at where we are applying machine learning to the tech recruiting space. I am also a PhD candidate at DePaul University, where I am researching methods to map essays to psychological models of reasoning processes.

What Simon H. is saying about this Meetup Group

Great for networking, and learning about techniques I had not heard of before.
