Is there anyone who doesn't love machine learning? Perhaps, but they are probably not reading this website anyway! In September 2016, a Deep Learning School was held at Stanford, and they generously posted their lectures online. Starting in 2017, once a week for 6 weeks we will get together at Foulab to watch and discuss the course presentations. All are welcome to come and simply listen to the lectures, but bringing a laptop and getting into the math after the video is highly encouraged.
The schedule is subject to adaptation, but currently we plan to watch two lectures per evening, in the order they were originally presented.
Update: Here is a useful playlist of the lectures
Vegetarian chili will be available for a small donation.
Now with a facebook event you can sign up to!
Machine learning Wednesdays will start on Jan 11, 2017. To avoid a time conflict with the excellent meetup group Papers We Love, we will take a break on the last Wednesday of each month. Thus the schedule is 19:00-22:00-Jan 11, Jan 18, Feb 1, 8, 15, March 1.
