New England Machine Learning Day 2018

New England Machine Learning Day 2018


The seventh annual New England Machine Learning Day will take place Monday, May 7, 2018, 10 AM–5 PM at Microsoft Research New England, One Memorial Drive, Cambridge, MA 02142. The event will bring together local academics and researchers in machine learning, artificial intelligence, and their application. There will be a lively poster session during lunch, followed by a provocative panel.

Also, consider joining a very worthwhile hackathon on June 11: New England Machine Learning for Accessibility and Neurodiversity.
