This is a placeholder landing page for Machine Learning related projects and topics at noisebridge.
We have weekly meetings, every Wednesday at 8PM, at 83c.

Presentations and other Materials
- Awesome Machine Learning Applications -- A list of cool applications of ML
- Hands-on Machine Learning, a presentation jbm gave on 2009-01-07.
It would be nice to have a cache of topics we might want to discuss at future meetings; this is a placeholder to keep track of them. If you'd like to present on a Wednesday, but aren't sure what to do it on, consider researching one of these topics and presenting that.
- No-Free Lunch Theorem 
- Bias and Variance 
- Resampling for Estimation 
- Bagging and Boosting 
- Estimation of Misclassification 
- Classifier Combination 
- Entropy in the information-theoretic sense
- A basic decision tree builder, recursive and using entropy metrics
- Metric spaces and what they mean
- Fundamentals of probabilities
- Naive Bayes classification
Please add things here as you think of them, with or without supporting documentation.
- Gesture recognition using a Wiimote
