6-6:30pm - Approximating Uncertainty in Deep Learning Models with Brandon Walker - "In recent years Deep Learning models have become extremely popular for applied machine learning. One limitation facing Deep Learning models is that they do not capture uncertainty in the model's predictions, which often makes them difficult to implement in practice. We will take a look at a recent technique of using dropout during the prediction phase as a Bayesian approximation."

6:30-7 - Lightning talks - come ready to share! Anything you've been learning about or working with that would benefit the group, whether it's beginner or expert material, high level or a deep dive, live demo, a couple of slides, or off the top of your head discussions.

7-7:30pm - More Pizza, Beers and Networking
