BayLearn 2016: Bay Area Machine Learning Symposium
Meet the Bay Area Machine Learning Scientists on October 6, 2016!
The BayLearn Symposium is an annual gathering of machine learning scientists from the San Francisco Bay Area. While it promotes community building between local researchers from academic and industrial institutions, it also welcomes visitors. This one-day event combines invited talks, contributed talks and posters to foster exchange of ideas. We’re very happy to have four great invited speakers this year:
Pieter Abbeel (UC Berkeley)
Leon Bottou (Facebook)
Adam Coates (Baidu)
Ilya Sutskever (OpenAI)
