    I'm a philosopher & ruby/JS dev from Australia. I'm passing through Vienna at the end of April and would love to attend and/or give a talk.

    I work in computational philosophy - using mathematical & computational methods to solve philosophical problems.

    I'm presenting a paper at the Munich Centre for Mathematical Philosophy LMU in April where I use JS simulations to examine some problems with democracy. I was thinking I could present a short version of this to ViennaJS with a greater focus on the tech side and how JS can be used in the humanities/academia.

    Let me know if you are keen...

    hiho, here is the agenda so far: http://www.meetup.com/viennajs/messages/boards/thread/43491562 sorry for the shitty formatting, but the email editor of meetup.com is ... just ... the ... worst!

      Franzl, could you add the talk part of this to the description above.
      Have you ever had the meetup editor crash on you? That is particularly fun.

    sorry for the spam via the mailinglist

    April 22, 2014

    • Franz E.

      the mailinglist has now been configures so that spam has to go through a human nadelöhr before it reaches you and drains away your lifetime

  • Florian E.

    I would like to give a very brief introduction to Machine Learning and then show how to build a recommendation system (think Amazon people who bought this also bought, Facebook's people you may know, Last.fm, etc) in Node.js with Predition.io.

    • Nik S.

      I am very interested in this. I have a little knowledge how Yandex does some of their machine learning in theory to recommend personalised search results for their users, but have no idea how it's built and vote for your talk, event it's just a brief introduction.

    the same rules as always apply: * A talk should be maximum 20 minutes long. We recommend 10-15 minutes talk and 5-10 minutes Q&A

    * we need to see some code

    also we will try to select a diversity of topics, some backend, some frontend, something completely different, some meta-stuff, some hard-core deep-dive programming concepts algo stuff and so on.
