New machine learning group forms


As an offshoot of the first ever Hamilton Machine Learning conference last December, a new machine learning and applied computing group has formed in Hamilton!

The group held its first ever meeting this past Saturday at CoMotion on King. About 40 attendees worked through a Kaggle machine learning problem together, using a dataset from the Titanic to predict which passengers would survive the tragedy. They also consumed copious amounts of pizza, thanks to the event sponsor, Hamilton machine learning startup Preteckt!

The group is planning its next meetup event and has started a Facebook group and Slack channel where you can join in the discussion and find out abut the next meetings! The group is being led by Masha Rahimi and Nick Miladinovic.
