Machine Learning Discussion Group Spring 2016
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 (Spring 2016) we are meeting on Wednesdays at 1:15pm in Gates 405.
