This is a study group dedicated to working through the book "Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning" by Christopher Bishop. It is a comprehensive introduction to the field of machine learning and is repeatedly recommended by practitioners in the field. At each meetup we will have people talk about a section of the book and afterwards we'll discuss solutions to "homework" problems from the last talk. To do well with this meetup you should have an understanding of basic calculus and a willingness to spend some time learning something new.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
