Boulder Machine Learning Meetup

"This meetup is dedicated to developing practical Machine Learning skills in live problem solving sessions during meetings. Sessions will be hands-on for developers/data scientists and not managers. Bring your laptops, we will be implementing practical examples so that you will bring away real proficiency at Machine Learning techniques. Mathematical skills will be assumed, including algebra, statistics/probability, and calculus, as is programming skill in Python. Knowing R is desirable. We will provide pointers for brushing up, but members are responsible to get up to speed.

Vast amounts of data are available and Machine Learning extracts useful information to guide decisions. We will explore multiple techniques of Machine Learning, including supervised and unsupervised learning, K-nearest neighbors, decision trees, Bayesian networks, logistic regression and support vector machines. We will have weekly meetings at the CU Boulder Atlas Institute, to whom we are grateful for providing space for our meetings. We hope it will be an exciting and rewarding experience! "
