Machine Learning Discussion Group - NLP

This week's meetup will be a joint one with Data Mining Case Study Meetup. Junling will lead a discussion on Natural Language Processing.  She will give an overview of NLP and its components, and then go over a case study of NLP used for sentiment analysis. 

We also want to thank Dale for his awesome overview on PCA during last week’s meetup. 

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.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
