Machine learning group continues 2018 Yelp challenge


When: Saturday May 26th 2018 from 12:00pm – 5:00pm

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

Organizer: Hamilton Machine Learning Group



We’ll continue working on the 2018 Yelp Challenge as a team!

We started working on the challenege in March with a group of intermediate/advanced machine learners, but newcomers to the group are still very welcome as we could use more help! This is a larger project we will likely be working on for several weeks after this event, which may include more hacakathon-esque sessions. For those interested in catching up, we have collected some great CNN and RNN intro videos which we’ll send out before the event.

Food and drink will be provided!

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
