Humans Learning Machine Learning

We are a group of physics trainees at the University of Toronto who meet on weekly basis to learn new techniques and discuss recent topics in machine learning. Members take turns to teach new topics to the group, making the learning and teaching a collective process. If you're interested in joining, feel free to contact us at hlml.toronto@gmail.com. The group is open to all interested members of the UofT community.

Take a look at our GitHub to see the types of projects we've worked on.
