Reading Club


Machine Learning Reading Club

Rainbow group organizes weekly meetings of the Reading Club. Our goal with this group is to encourage reading and organic discussion of the presented paper on the topic of interest to the group.

If, over the past weeks, you have been going over an interesting conference paper, book chapter, blog post or any other medium, then this meeting is an opportunity for you to articulate and debate those ideas within a focused discussion.

By default, the participants will not be expected to have read or understood the work, so the discussion hinges on the presenters' ability to convey the essence of the material effectively to the others. We encourage to present freely and informally.

To present: email the material to Fazilet (fg405) or Aamir (am2806) up to 48 hours before the meeting and we will distribute it to the participants in the mailing list.
Venue and time: we are meeting every Friday, 15.00-16.00, currently via zoom (link is distributed over the email). The time is updated at the beginning of every term.
To subscribe: email Fazilet (dai24) or Aamir (am2806) to be added to the mailing list. Before every meeting we advertise the paper and make anouncements. Being on the mailing lists helps you to be updated.
The group is grateful for starting and running the club to Maria Perez-Ortiz, Dan Andrei Iliescu and Aliaksei Mikhailiuk.
