For the first MOOC, we will be going for Andrew Ng's class Machine Learning Course: https://www.coursera.org/course/ml

Please go to the link and watch the videos on the following topics (click the preview lecture button for the videos):
1) Anomaly Detection  
2) Recommender Systems 

3) OCR

For each meet-up, we will go about two week's worth of lesson materials (according to the selected course's schedule).

      Would love to, but I'm not 100% certain at the moment. You have any backup speaker just in case?

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
