    Hi, it was nice meeting everyone, thanks for the presentations and discussions. I would like to share the link to the book available at Stanford website which has a great chapter (9) on the recommendation systems algorithms. http://infolab.stanford.edu/~ullman/mmds.html. The rest of the book is very informative, too.

    MCMC is pretty general and goes beyond ML, but here's an introduction paper to MCMC for ML in particular. http://www.springerlink.com/content/xh62794161k70540/

    Hmmmm, definitely not my goal to make anyone feel bad about MCMC - it was supposed to be a high-level overview so I left out a lot of details :) Only so much you can do in what was supposed to be 10 minutes.

    This is probably the best resource for ML videos: http://videolectures.net/Top/Computer_Science/Machine_Learning/

    There are talks there about MCMC, Bayesian inference and Bayesian optimization with Gaussian processes.

    Really impressed with quality of brain power in the room!

    Thanks for the talk Michael, Nice to meet everyone yesterday. In case anyone else feels a little bad about MCMC I found an interesting SciPy video about it and Bayesian statistical modelling. http://www.archive.org/details/Scipy2011-Monday-Room102-Part1_146

    Cheers.

    Hello everyone. Here is a link to the paper that I based my talk on: http://arxiv.org/abs/1012.3793

    Hope you had a good time.

    There's a ML-specific StackExchange that's in the Commitment phase. It would be nice to have an ML-specific SE and it depends on people getting behind the proposal.. so please consider signing up and participating in the Beta..

    Also in the class, possibly interested in meeting up (but as Irene said not necessary every week).

    I am enrolled in the class as well. I would be interested in meeting to discuss the class, but maybe not every week. We can discuss it during the meetup.

    I enrolled in the ml-class.org class. I am interested in meeting up with others who are enrolled. Something regular, informal and downtown. Maybe lunch once a week? Let me know if you are interested.

    I think people coming to this would be interested in this course: ml-class.org.

    I can volunteer a location at my company Vision Critical downtown Vancouver!
