2016 – Present
Machine Learning Study Group
While I was assisting in the lab at Singularity University, I attended a lecture by Kevin Kelly on the future of intelligence. This talk convinced me that I needed to better understand the hype behind Machine Learning which some people were then also calling Artificial Intelligence (AI). I’d been interested in AI but didn’t think that we were close to achieving it. On returning to Toronto, I created a machine learning study group and invited my friends and members of hacklab to join. Since then, we’ve been taking online classes related to Machine Learning and trying to keep ourselves grounded in the realities of it, so that we can separate the wheat from the chaff in the huge amounts of hype. It’s been a great education and I do like to write the occasional line of code!Email me if you’d like to join the slack!
