First a big shout out to Steve Banville and Emre Safak for stepping up as the first speakers for the meetup. Our speaker for the February meetup is Matt Wescott. Matt is a member of our meetup and has generously volunteered to give an interactive presentation on his Kaggle submission- recognizing birds species from audio clips. His team placed second in the Kaggle contest for multi-label bird species classification, using a simple model that blends random forests trained on modified MFCC features. He'll be walking us through their solution and the corners they cut to get there. Matt's presentation will begin at about 7:45pm. The first 45mts of the meetup will be devoted to networking. Closer to the date I shall send clear parking instructions as many folks struggled with parking last time. Stay tuned.
Thanks and see you, Seema.
