The Machine Learning seminar is a weekly meeting which has the goal of bringing together the different researchers and students at TTIC and UChicago working on related fields to present their work. The vast majority of talks will be about the speaker’s own research (i.e. this is not intended as a reading group). Where? TTIC conference room.
