This is our regular bi-weekly meeting open to anyone interested in Artificial Intelligence or Machine Learning, regardless of experience or background. The point is to meet others interested in the area and potentially form collaborations or study groups. For those new to AI/ML, please identify yourself so you can connect with others with similar interests.

We'll continue the format as the previous meetups - introductions, couple of short presentations, open discussions on topics of interest.

We'll have a projector, so if you have a presentation of what you're working on please bring your laptop. (The projector takes HDMI hookup.) Let me know if you are interested and please post presentation to meetup or slack channel prior to the meetup.

A couple of logistic items: (1) there is free parking in the building; (2) we'll meet in the EAST room (Room B) on 2nd floor; (3) there will be coffee too!

A big thank you to our sponsor, Miner and Kasch, for covering the costs of this event!

As always, suggestions are most welcome!
