Machine Learning Discussion Group - Use cases and algorithms

  • September 13, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This week Mike Bowles will go thru some of the common business use cases for machine learning and discuss the algorithms used for each.

We also want to thank Junling Hu for her overview on page ranks and social graph influence scores 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.

    maybe not so many use cases, but ideally paced for the group. Never dull

    I probably won't make it tonight. If I did, I would want to make a few announcements:

    * I want to hire a Data Scientist to join me. Data Mining (unsupervised) + R + Big Data + well funded startup­

    * Join us at the Mining Big Data Camp, on Sat, Oct 12­

    * Would you like to gain some experience developing cloud applications? Come to the day long class on Sat, Sept 29­

    Thanks, Greg

    If you arrive early at the Dojo, you might be interested in this quantum computing meetup at 5:00pm:­

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.
