Mountain View - Machine Learning Study Group

This week we meet on Friday at Hacker Dojo. We're at the big event room.

Discussion minutes are at:

The free online class is taught by Stanford Professor Andrew Ng! It's fun to complete a unit of Machine Learning every week and collaborate among a study group.

Wednesday, April 24th —Unit 1

    Note: the formula for gradient regularization has an error. The formula should be:
    Theta1_grad(:, j) = D1(:, j)/m + lambda/m * Theta1(:, j);

    instead of
    Theta1_grad(:, j) = D1(:, j)/m + lambda * Theta1(:, j);

    i.e. the second half needs to be divided by m as well.

    I have a conflict on Fridays, so if you want a room, somebody else will have to reserve it.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
