August 2014 Meeting

August 14th Meeting

This month we’ll have a special guest presenting for us from Seattle. Matt Kirk will give us a dose of machine learning on the topic of building (and testing) sentiment analysis using support vector machines in Ruby. This is sure to be an interesting session that you won’t want to miss.

Matt is the author of the upcoming O’Reilly book Thoughtful Machine Learning. (You can also sign up here to be notified when the book is released.) He’s also a partner at Modulus 7, a change management consultancy in Seattle, WA. When he’s not teaching machines to learn or people to change, you might find him travelling or enjoying (or expanding) his 2,000+(!!) collection of vinyl records.

Location: Prototek Time: 11:30 – 12:30
