June Meetup: A Unified View of SVM

It was great seeing everyone at last month's RStudio event. This month we'll have two tool agnostic talks on SVM. An expert in all things statistics, Ian Fellows of Fellows Statistics, will be giving us a unified view of variable selection, boosting, SVM and regularization. I'll be showing a naive implementation of SGD that took only 20 minutes of work to score 666th out of 1687 entries in a ML competition. Hopefully this motivates everyone to give kaggle a shot with the little free time you have :)

Per usual please park on the street and not in the Pangea parking lot.

See you all next month!
