The Machine Intelligence Research Group (MIRG), currently an aspirational name, at the University of Connecticut is just getting started. The group currently consists of myself and other PhD students interested in machine learning. I will let them introduce themselves in posts of their own.
In order to get more hands-on experience with machine learning and coding in R, we will be working through An Introduction to Statistical Learning with Applications in R and using the videos available on R Bloggers. The three of us will be posting thoughts and code throughout the summer.
In addition, I will be a participant in the Critical Language Scholarship Program in Suzhou, China this year. The program begins in less than two weeks and I expect that I will post some thoughts on the Mandarin language with regards to linguistics, psychology, and machine learning.
All of this is, of course, continent on my ability to draw myself away from the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup. Go Nadeshiko Japan!
