GDG Reno's AI Practitioner Sessions is a community study jam dedicated to exploring and understanding the ever-evolving realm of machine learning applications and theory.
We hold workshops on a particular topic, paper, or technique every two weeks.
The AI Practitioner Sessions are a cornerstone of GDG Reno's activities, designed to bring our community together in a physical space to dig deep into the practical aspects of machine learning and its commercial and scientific applications.
Our philosophy is rooted in the strength of collaborative efforts and the value of many perspectives. We welcome individuals from all walks of life: students, curious people looking to get into tech, scientific researchers, industry experts, or entrepreneurs seeking to leverage AI in their businesses. Our community is a hub for continuous learning and growth.
We explore machine learning during our sessions by walking through research papers or highlighting a particular ML topic or technique. Our ultimate objective is not only to grasp the theory but also to put these advancements into practice in real-world situations.
GDG Reno is the local chapter of the worldwide Google Developer's Group. Our collaboration with Google allows us to bring interesting speakers, content, and connections to the community.
These meetings of the minds are not just about broadening our horizons in machine learning but also about building connections, nurturing a supportive network, and fostering a dynamic community that grows together.
So, come, pull up a chair, and join the conversation every other Tuesday at the AI Practitioner Sessions. Let's delve into the world of machine learning together!
