about MLT

Machine Learning Tea is a weekly informal gathering for researchers in machine learning and those in the related fields such as computational neuroscience, AI, statistics, etc. At the gathering, we will be entertained by a 15-30 minute mini chalk-talk on interesting topics in ML or related fields. Occasionally, the talks are given by the visitors from outside Cambridge area to present their own work. 

When: Weds. 4-5pm 
Where: Maxwell Dworkin 223 


Please volunteer to give a tea talk! Contact the organizers (SueYeon Chung, Michael Gelbart) if you are interested.
