Focus:

How to solve MNIST with a Keras Neural Network. A high level introduction to Keras for implementing a kernel and running it on Kaggle.

Kaggle (https://www.kaggle.com/competitions) is an online platform for machine learning competitions and exploration. Its a platform that makes tools and data sets freely and readily accessible. So its a great place to data scientists of all skill levels to get experience, see examples, create public-facing artifacts to showcase their skills and even win cash prizes.

Those who have formed teams will discuss their projects, may be form a few new teams to tackle competitions on Kaggle. Suggestions for next month.

Agenda:

6:30pm - 6:45: social / networking
6:45 - ~7:40: Keras MNIST made easy
7:40 - 7:55: Who's working on which competitions, pick new competitions, new groups
7:55 - 8:00 cleanup and get out (library closes at 8pm)

As usual, anyone who wants to keep chatting after 8 can just move over to Summit Coffee.
