Anshul Amar will present some real-life machine learning problems and explain why he turned to Clojure as a practical solution to these problems. The talk will also go over the code for an automated classification library.
Anshul is the co-founder of Unfold (unfold.com), a Los Angeles-based startup that relies signficantly on Clojure.
Parking and Directions:
We're in the Gateway West building, next to the Westfield Century City mall on the east side. It's the only building with big red "Westfield" signs on top.
I recommend you park at the mall. You get 3 hours free at the mall, and our building is a short easy walk: Exit from the mall parking garage up to ground level, head east, pass the Lens Crafters, and you'll be able to enter the west side of 1801. Then just hit the elevators to go all the way up to floor 14, and we're in Suite 1450.
In a pinch, if you park in the parking garage for Gateway West, I may be able to score you parking validation. However, I cannot promise it and therefore prefer you use the mall parking.
