Free Learn to Sing and Perform Wednesdays!

Pyzanos Karaoke Lounge & Grill

Do you want to become a better singer or just have fun singing? Join us in a fun environment at Pyzano's every Wednesday night at 9 pm. The KJ is great and it's a great atmosphere to practice your stuff. It's a great environment if your a beginner and has a professional setup for experienced vocalists. You'll usually get to sing two songs an hour. The bar and grill is available for food and drinks, but it's not required. It's a good idea to tip the KJ if possible. We hope to see you there!

Topic Modeling Using Latent Dirichlet Allocation

Portland Community Church

Philip Robinson will be presenting research whilst at NASA on Topic Modeling. Topic modeling is the task of taking a collection of objects and establishing a strategy for describing these objects by common categories found across the collection. This is usually an unsupervised activity applied to a document collection and doesn't require topics to be human interpret-able. My talk introduces Latent Dirichlet Allocation, as a topic modeling strategy for a collection of topics, and discusses an implemented prototype system I developed for NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab. For this project, I addressed the "Matchmaker's Problem" in the context of identifying the best employee to solve a mission-critical engineering anomaly in late-stage missions. The long-form presentation can be found here https://github.com/probinso/expert-modeling-system/blob/master/decks/itds/pres.pdf If you would like to join the discussion check us out on Zoom https://zoom.us/j/7891236789. Do you want to learn and share your passion in a supportive community? Knowledge Mavens is an ethos of sharing, creativity, and inspiration. Our Meetup provides an opportunity to "Show and Tell" followed by feedback and Q&A. You'll have the opportunity to share with our channels such as Meetup, GitHub, YouTube, and Facebook to connect with more passionate people. The second half of our session we'll collaborate on new topics. The winner wins an award for the most interesting topic and the opportunity to share in an upcoming session.

Free Knowledge - Build your own foldable kayak class (Free)

Chinese Grace Baptist Church

I will conduct a series of 4 classes (Free) teaching you how to build a foldable boat. A kayak is light and is less than 25 lbs. When folded can be put inside the trunk of your car. It takes 5 hours to build one. You can obtain the materials at Home Depot (for < $90). You may attend 1, 2, 3 or all classes. The first 45 minutes of the class time will cover the construction of varies parts of the boat. Former students will use the rest of the time building their boats. The class is very informal and you don't have to stay for 3 hours. You don't have to bring anything to the meeting.
