What's it all about?

The purpose of this group is to prepare young geos for the jobs of the future by inspiring, advancing knowledge, and promoting hands-on experience in machine learning within our community. We will host machine learning related presentations and work together on mining-related data science projects. 

Prerequisite

You won’t get anything out of our machine learning meetings without a basic understanding of coding. The two languages that are most useful to ML are Python and R. Please find an online course (there are some good free ones out there) and capture a screenshot of your certificate of completion to secure your place the first time you register!

Schedule

Our machine learning group will meet on the third Tuesday of every month. Space is limited and registration is required through Eventbrite. If you register and can no longer attend please notify us so we can open up a spot for someone else.

Resources

There are tons of online resources available if you want to dig deeper into the world of data science, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. The following list contains a few things we have come across – if you find something you think we should add to the list please let us know!
