session #6: power to the features

It was nice seeing a bunch of our group members at the applied ml day. This is a good opportunity to cover two motifs that came up in the talks: (I) Features (features, features..); (II) Computational power. 

Below is a list of optional papers for our session. We'll pick only one/two of them. Please join the effort (by covering even a modest portion, e.g., a section).

Learning features  - This deep learning tutorial covers the essentials of this field.  It's about time we'll touch this fascinating field.  http://bit.ly/19HPkOC

(Recycling a few works we wanted to cover in previous sessions, yet, didn't get to.)

Aggressive feature selection - The why, when, & how of getting rid of many (redundant) features. I think that Kira mentioned such situation in her talk. http://bit.ly/1aE2SJd

How to do massive computations on a small scale machine - Danny mentioned in his talk the power of being 'computationaly-wise.' The following 'graph-chi' paper is all about engineering. I think it is a gem. http://bit.ly/1mkCfuS

Learning behavioural dynamics on the web: We haven't had the time to cover this paper last time (in our time-series session). Let's look at it from a "feature engineering" point of view. http://bit.ly/18uiPTx

    great meetup as always! Thanks to the organizers and presenters :)
    allow me to recommend Edwin Chen's introduction to restricted Boltzmann machines - a really approachable text on the topic http://blog.echen.me/2011/07/18/introduction-to-restricted-boltzmann-machines/ (Chen has other great blog posts, btw)

    I would love to see you all at Sears offices tomorrow,
    mind that we have two floors, the meetup is in the 5th floor

    Hi all,
    We're gonna have a session of intros. We'll try to touch a few of the papers. In case you didn't msg me, please read an intro (or two) - it will add fun to our session.

  • Ron B.

    Hi all, Last chance to send your part/suggestion. I plan to l decide the session's content by tomorrow's evening. tnx, r.

  • Hershel S.

    I'm happy to do some or all of the "aggressive feature selection" paper.

    February 3, 2014

  • Ron B.

    Hi all,

    Please let me know which part (paper/section) you intended/can/want to cover. Please note - you just need to read it and discuss with the rest of us (no need for powerpoint presentations). Drop me a message. I will later post our schedule. Thanks!
