Next Meetup

Pure data comedy! Analyze Boulder is cross-promoting with Women in Machine Learning and Data Science (WiMLDS). Janel Shane of is a do-not-miss opportunity! All are welcome. It's tough to write a machine learning algorithm that works well. Overfitting, noisy data, a problem that's too general - these problems plague the programmers who apply these algorithms to financial modeling and image labeling. But mistakes can also be fun. At her humor blog, Janelle Shane posts examples of machine learning algorithms going terribly, hilariously wrong. Here, she talks about some common machine learning mistakes - and how to use them deliberately. Janelle Shane's neural network blog,, features computer programs that try to invent human things like recipes and paint colors and Halloween costumes. has been covered in the Guardian, the Atlantic, NBC News, Slate, All Things Considered, and more. Janelle also works as a research scientist in Colorado, where she makes computer-controlled holograms for studying the brain. She has only made a neural network recipe once and discovered that horseradish brownies are about as terrible as you might imagine. Hosted by: Boulder Women in Machine Learning & Data Science (WiMLDS) and Analyze Boulder All are welcome!
