About this event


#NCLML <- The Twitter hashtag for our goal to make Newcastle the Home of Machine Learning in the UK


This is the official Google Cloud Developer Group, to nurture and educate the local community on topics related to Machine Learning. Our goal is to create a friendly community of experts and like-minded people.

All are welcome, especially:

• Developers or students who want to learn more about ML
• Potential entrepreneurs
• Companies or organizations who would like to use ML in their business
• Careers: potential employers or job-seekers... or if you want INTERNSHIPS

========== NEW MESSAGE! ============


Hi Folks! in this 2nd meetup, we'll start focussing on the Hackathon by LKQ that will happen in Meetup #5 (February 2019)...

... Introducing... "The ML 20 Minute Challenges!".... see below

... So we'll start focusing on some PRACTICAL SKILLS and exercises you can start doing: Yu and Open Lab are going to demonstrate some "20 Minute Challenges", which are practical things that a developer or beginner in ML can do using off-the-shelf tools like Google Tensorflow, to build simple applications or real life tasks

... We're also announcing certain JOBS AVAILABLE (LKQ, Yitu, Caspian)

... And our featured speaker this week is CASPIAN, the fastest growing ML company based in Newcastle

... Will also let you know about the VISA TALK event about the Tier 1 Exceptional Talent visa..... probably happening in November or January at this rate (we have a few other big events happening in November, so trying to fit everything and everyone together)

... We would also like to welcome the pre-accelerator IGNITE taking place right now in TusPark :)
