Who is this meetup for?
Ideally you have a background in software engineering, science or mathematics. All of these will make it easier to get stuck in solving the challenges.
What is the aim of this meet-up?
The aim of these meetups is to provide an environment for you to teach yourself machine learning. The idea is to do this by working through tutorials or Kaggle competitions.
You will split into groups depending on what you want to work on. You can work as a team, individually or as a pair in these groups.
Any ability is welcome. This is a self-lead learning course and is based on everyone helping each other.
Do I have to have been to the previous workshops to come along?
No. The groups will be split based on which challenges you would like to work on.
If you have not been to any of the other workshops you would get more out of the meetup by setting up your environments before coming along. Set up:
Python (ideally version 3.7) using Anaconda.
