The DSRC hosts weekly machine learning reading group meetings, the goal of which is for students to present interesting papers to facilitate discussions that facilitate research.
The group meets every Wednesday from 1:00pm to 2:00pm in Amos Eaton 216. Please contact Alex Gittens if you are interested in presenting or have questions about the group.
