Coursera Machine Learning Discussion Group

Ever wondered why Zillow misprices your home?

The short answer: limited data.

But for those who want to delve a little deeper, I offer you the Coursera Machine Learning Discussion Group. Feel free to join us on a weekly basis as we discuss the merits and pitfalls of Linear Regression, Clustering, Neural Networks and other data-mining techniques.

We will follow the Cousera’s Machine Learning course, which is based on Stanford’s aptly-titled class, Machine Learning. The info is here: https://www.coursera.org/course/ml. The course uses Matlab/Octave, but you just as easily do it with R, Python, or if you’re really game, C++. We plan to have a speaker or two to give a practical context to everything.

If you’re worried about technical prerequisites, don’t worry: we (or Khan Academy ) can get you up to speed. Hope to see you out there. If you have any questions, feel free to email me.

Join or login to comment.

    I really enjoyed our first meetup. It turns out that next weekend I'll be at the beach with my family. I had forgotten that. Duh! Sad to say, I do not have a "calendar brain." -- among other deficits. Anyway, I will attend and participate as much as possible. I am very encouraged by what I heard from the participants at Saturdays meeting. I'm also interested in trying out google hangouts, if anyone can get it going

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.
