Machine Learning Discussion Group
The Machine Learning Discussion Group (MLDG) is an informal group for discussing the latest work in the field of Machine Learning. We usually discuss a paper from a recent conference (NIPS, ICML, etc) each meeting.
This term (Fall2017) we meet on Wednesdays (5.30 - 6.30 pm) in Gates 416 (Ithaca) and Bloomberg 398 (Cornell Tech, New York City).
Schedule of papers
Feel free to volunteer for any available week! Send an email to as3354 [at] cornell.edu

Who attends the MLDG?
The group is mainly attended by graduate students and undergraduate students actively interested in the area of machine learning. Beginning of every semester, we meet to discuss areas of interests to each of the people attending and decide on a few themes for the semester. Suggestions for topics or papers to discuss may be sent to the mailing list and are always welcome.
How do I join the mailing list?
You can join the list by sending an email with subject "join" (no quotes) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
How do I get involved?
Want to check out MLDG? Stop by any Tuesday. Have anything interesting to share or announce, you can use the mldg mailing list, email@example.com.
