We have different "chapters" across the state. If you're interested in starting one in your area and sharing this Meetup account and the @iowajs (https://twitter.com/iowajs) account, let us know.
Our typical meetups are the 3rd Thursday of each month at MERGE (http://mergeic.com/) at 136 S Dubuque St in downtown Iowa City.
Snacks are graciously provided by Telepharm, and you can bring your own beverages.
In this talk, we’ll walk through the fundamentals of machine learning: data collection, annotation, preprocessing, training, and deployment.
We’ll also do a live demo, together, of training and deploying our very own model for identifying hand gestures. 🙌
