I get notifications far later than I like for these things, but the content
has been very good.

I saw Neville speak at the first Dawn or Doom event a few years ago, and I
am personally looking forward to getting a deeper dive in the subject from

Hello, again!

It’s hard to believe that another month has sped by.  Tomorrow, June 1st
from 11:30-1:00 will be our next Software Stir meet-up and we have a couple
of great speakers lined up.  We will be meeting at the Anvil with the *Purdue
Foundry* providing lunch (RSVP: http://bit.ly/2sdWkxU) and also parking
validation for the Grant Street Parking Garage.

Professor Jennifer Neville from the CS department is going to be speaking
on Big Data and machine learning with a talk titled:  "A Few Useful Things
to Know About Machine Learning: Models, Methods, and Mistakes”.  For those
of you that have not had a chance to meet Professor Neville are in for a
real treat.  She holds the Miller Family Chair of Computer Science and
Statistics at Purdue and is a very well respected in this field.  It
doesn’t matter if you're an expert in the machine learning and big data or
a non-technical startup co-founder there will be something for everyone in
her discussion.

Next, Kyler Nunery will be giving a technical talk on Machine Learning,
specifically Neural Networks- what they are and examples of state of the
art applications   Kyler has an incredible background around software and
startups and is someone that you’ll definitely want to get to know.  There
is no doubt that Kyler’s presentation will leave you much greater
understanding of the topic and have you excited to explore AI and neural
nets yourself.

So, bring your curiosity, your questions, and your appetite!  This is going
to be an awesome way to kick off a new month.

Please don’t forget to RSVP for the food and as always I look forward to
seeing you there!
