We're also on Slack! You can request an invite link to our workspace here (https://scvdatascience.herokuapp.com). Within our workspace, you'll find channels to talk about #general data science, the #meetup, #jobs, and other #random stuff.
Join us for an evening of coding and data science fun! You can bring your own personal project to work on, or work on our planned exercise (see below), based on our reading from Python Machine Learning (https://amzn.to/2B0WSMP) (Note: you don't actually have to do the reading in order to do the exercise). This is an opportunity to collaborate with others and learn from one another.
Exercise - based on Python Machine Learning Chapter 5: Compressing Data via Dimensionality Reduction
For this session, we will use the MNIST data and work together to do some of the following:
* Principal Component Analysis
* Linear Discriminant Analysis
* Kernel Principal Component Analysis
Pizza will be provided.
What to Bring:
* Laptop and charger
* Copy of the book if you have it (optional - if doing the planned exercise)
