Machine learning Yelp challenge workshop


When: Saturday March 31st 2018 from 12:00pm – 5:00pm

Where: CoMotion on King at 115 King Street East, Hamilton, Ontario

Organizer: Hamilton Machine Learning and Computing Research


Cost: $5


We will be working on the 2018 Yelp challange as a team!

This is an advanced workshop for machine learners who already have exprience with basics:

  • Python 3.x installed
  • Familiarity with Pandas and Numpy
  • Familiarity with neural networks

What you can expect to learn:

  • Natural Language Processing techniques
  • Convolutional/Recurrent neural network models
  • Keras/Pytorch/Tensorflow

The goal of this workshop will be to gather intermediated/advanced machine learners together to work on a larger project which may extend for several weeks and depending on interest, may include more hackathon-esque sessions. We’ll be supplying all attendees with further information about what you need to bring as we near the date. For those interested in catching up, we have collected some great CNN and RNN intro videos which we’ll send out to everyone before the event.

Food and drink will be provided.
