As Phillip noted earlier this week, I will be helping out for organizing the A.I./Big Data/Semantic Web group. Before getting started, I was hoping to get some feedback from people to better understand what everyone wants out of this group.
The subject matter of our group is fairly broad. Additionally, the experience level of group members is diverse as well. So taking all that into account, I had thought about hosting different types of events beyond having a monthly speaker. In particular, I had thought about:
- have a monthly to bi-monthly hacknight or workshop depending on interest.
What would be the interest level for these things, particularly the udacity/coursera courses?
Beyond that, are there any software languages, open source tools, topics, or anything else that you would like to see a particular focus on?
Anyway, I appreciate any suggestions and I look forward to meeting you all.
