Where did you work/study most recently?

No answer yet

What would you like to get out of this group?

I am looking to meet other people who are interested in the same material. I really enjoy talking with other people about this subject matter, and I do not easily find people with this interest in everyday life.

How much prior experience do you have with Machine Learning?

Does the free online class offered by Stanford count? I also had a neighbor that studied AI at NYU. We had some great conversations before he moved. In addition, I have another friend who is a researcher at Northwestern, and he is writing an academic paper about machine learning.

Do you or your group/organization/company use "machine learning" (artificial intelligence, data mining, statistics, clever algorithms, whatever) on a regular basis or to solve interesting problems?

I think some of my value to this group is my economics background. I might not be the best at writing an algorithm, but I can understand what motivates people. And more importantly, how to have the computer adapt more closely to human behavior. I believe that machine learning and predictive analytics is the future.

Are there any topics about which you'd be willing to give a presentation (it's OK if not!)?

I would be willing to present if the group wanted me to... the topic would be decided by the group.

Introduction

Hi! I was born in beautiful Honolulu, Hawaii, and I am looking to meet people with similar interests. I finished a masters in economics. I find machine learning fascinating.
