Workshop on Machine Learning: A Primer
April 21, 2018 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM
In recent years we have seen words related to recent developments in computer science and technology, like machine learning, artificial intelligence or neural networks, be used increasingly in diverse fields of research and of the society in general. This workshop will survey basic concepts of machine learning. No specific background is expected. The goal is to provide some vocabulary with which one can get a sense of what these computational methods are about. In addition, we will also survey existing machine learning-related resources that one can explore to learn further; the resources will address technical understanding as well as critical thinking about the many implications of the technology. This workshop is offered by Achim Koh, student at the New Media Lab at the CUNY Graduate Center.
