What we're about

We are a group of startup engineers, research scientists, computational linguists, mathematicians, philosophers, and others interested in understanding the meaning of text, reasoning, and human intent through technology. We want to apply our understanding to building new businesses and improving overall human experience in the modern connected world. The MIND Stack explained: mind.wtf.

This is a technical AI meetup: we build systems with Machine Learning on top of Data Pipelines, and concern ourselves with the stuff we can try in open source, learn, improve, and model human behavior in industry for practical results.

The advisory board for this meetup is Cicero Institute (Cicero.ai), and its conferences are AI.vision and self.driving.cars. We like specific technical problems (self-driving cars) and the way they inform better higher-level inference of the future of AI (AI.vision).

Scale By the Bay 2021 CFP extended until June 20

Online event

We invite all meetup members to submit talks to SBTB, as the CFP was extended until June 20.

Scale By the Bay 2021 will be held online on October 28-29, 2021.
Following the dramatic success of our revolutionary community setup for 2020, SBTB 2021 will also be produced by Konfy, an all-women tech company building events with love for developers, by developers. They created Scala Love, Java Love, Haskell Love, Data Love, and more.

The CFP is open at https://scale.bythebay.io/cfp until June 20.

Early bird registration is open too! It's our best deal ever (no code needed) and will be gone as those passes are gone.

Check out previous years, all linked form the landing page, to get an idea for a talk, and give it your best shot!

Deep Learning Book Reading Group
Needs a date and time

Needs a location

Note: the limits of Deep Learning will be examined by the AI industry leaders at http://ai.vision conference, San Francisco, March 8. Early Bird ends 12/31.

This is a biweekly reading group for the book by Goodfellow, Bengio and Courville (https://www.amazon.com/Deep-Learning-Adaptive-Computation-Machine/dp/0262035618).

We'll meet in 2017 and go through it in sequence. We need a fixed venue to host us -- please email Alexy at [masked] if you want to be the home of the brave AI. We'll need reading group leaders for this to happen, please email Alexy if you want to lead certain chapters or the whole sequence.
