What we're about
Machine learning is the art and science of getting computers to act without being explicitly told what to do. That's right Skynet! But before we're subjugated by a Superintelligence of our own creation, there's a lot of work to be done! This group explores the tools and techniques used in the field of machine learning, emphasizing practical application across industry and academia.
Chicago ML will dive headlong into the state-of-the-art in machine learning and host speakers from Chicago and around the world to talk about solving very hard problems using computers. Look for introductions and tutorials to get you up to speed on topics such as supervised and unsupervised learning, linear and logistic regression, neural networks, and support vector machines. Look to meet smart, interesting people with a range of backgrounds and interests. Most of all, look for super fun, inviting and inclusive meetups here in Chicago!
Most of all, look for robots!
