Join us at 5:30 pm on April 28, 2016 when Arkadas Ozakin will begin by describing the anomaly/outlier/novelty detection setup and commonly used approaches. Arkadas will then focus on unsupervised learning, and explore ways to build unsupervised models based on kernel density estimation, and explain how to calibrate the likelihood scores. He will use a real-world use case—finding outliers in geospatial behavior—to demonstrate how an outlier-detection framework can be applied to find anomalies in a dataset with millions of instances. This Meet Up will take place at DLA Piper San Francisco: 555 Mission St. #2400 San Francisco, CA.

Is deep learning the final step toward AI, or is it something greater? - Dr. Alexander Gray, CEO and Co-founder at Skytree, describes the concept of deep learning and how it will advance the field of Machine Learning.

Join us at 6:45 pm on April 22, 2016 when Nick Ball, Ph.D and Staff Data Scientist at Skytree will walk through a machine-learning model that he recently built using the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) to determine galaxy distances. The main issue with determining galaxy distance is that spectral analysis delivers an accurate distance to a galaxy, but spectral analysis is expensive and time consuming. Imaging data on the other hand is much more readily available, so Nick wanted to see if he could build a machine-learning model using spectra as a training data set to predict distances using imaging. The results deliver a faster and more cost effective way to determine galaxy distance. While Nick’s use case is of an astrophysical nature, the approaches, methodology and algorithms can be used to build models in a wide range of industries and use cases. This Meet Up will take place at the Hacker Dojo in the large event room at 599 Fairchild Drive Mountain View, CA.
