Machine Learning Night happens every Monday at Fat Cat Fab Lab. Our group will discuss Machine Learning, Information Retrieval, Natural Language Processing, Knowledge Representation, and Artificial Intelligence.
Meeting topics will include:
This is an update of an earlier talk on using an interesting ML algorithm to predict the future stock buys of large investors based on the quarterly stock ownership data that they are required to file with the SEC. The algorithm used is called collaborative filtering, and one of the interesting things about it is that it doesn't require the usual feature vectors X as input - in a sense it deduces the features automatically!
I'll describe the basic collaborative filtering algorithm, and a number of tricks that improved the performance of the basic algorithm. These tricks may be of interest if you want to use collaborative filtering yourself.
We are a small group of students, computer scientists, engineers, academics, and entrepreneurs with a deep interest in these fields & related technologies.
Meeting topics are varied and can focus on current trends and technologies, best practices for development in big-data environments, and introductory discussions about machine learning and how to incorporate it into your life and business
To Attend, you must join our Meetup group and RSVP. Please note: All meetups held at Fat Cat Fab Lab are private events. They are for members of the Fat Cat Fab Lab Meetup group only. All events are for persons 18 years and older.
