Machine Learning Discussion Group

This week Andre will lead the discussion on Support Vector Machines. Want to thank Brian Wang for his excellent overview on Decision Trees and Random Forests during last week’s meetup.

We will be meeting at Hacker Dojo in a conference room down the hallway to the left of the entrance.  You do not need to be a member of Hacker Dojo to attend.

For those new to this group, the purpose of this meetup is to learn from each other the various aspects of machine learning. Our focus will be on intuitions, theories, and implementations behind machine learning algorithms. The format will be a chosen algorithm or topic reviewed/explained by a pre-assigned member through a highly interactive discussion session, and it is expected that other members will draw from their respective knowledge and experience to contribute to the explanation on the topic. We may also discuss specific machine learning projects should time permits after the chosen topic discussion.

The background of attendees varies from those that have exposure to machine learning, whether through Andrew Ng’s Coursera class or through other learning channels, to those that use machine learning in their day-to-days. However, even if you have no exposure to but have interest in machine learning, you are welcome to attend the meetup. Of course you might get more out of it if you go through the videos in Andrew Ng’s free Coursera class or equivalent.

    continuing from the discussion from the meeting... the concept behind adding more features into the model, is like taking photograph of an object from multiple angles. each feature is like a specific side of the object. The diverse the angle of camera is, the complete the picture of the object you can recognize.

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.
