Fridays 11am, alternating
with AI-Stats seminar
Location: ICS 432
The purpose of this journal club is to read and
discuss a number of landmark papers on kernel methods.
The first session will consist of a general introduction to kernel methods.
During this first session we will
interactively choose papers from the literature on kernel methods. Each session
has one "chair" who
commits to reading the paper in some detail and leads the discussion.
This is not a faculty only event! Students at any level are encouraged to
sit in and listen and/or contribute.
If you want to be added or removed from to the mailing list please send an
email to firstname.lastname@example.org
