Demystify Machine Learning



Machine learning seems to be the hottest topic in the software industry now, but what actually is it? IEEE UofT is going to demystify it with a series of ML talks!

Professors with research focused on machine learning and its applications will be offering seminars each week about their specialized research areas, and how you can get involved.

Come, learn and network! Pizzas and drinks will be provided!
