Full details about this meeting will be posted here:

The Machine Learning and Science Forum (formerly the Berkeley Statistics and Machine Learning Forum) meets biweekly to discuss current applications across a wide variety of research domains in the physical sciences and beyond. Hosted by UC Berkeley Physics Professor and BIDS Senior Fellow Uros Seljak, these active sessions bring together domain scientists, statisticians, and computer scientists who are either developing state-of-the-art methods or are interested in applying these methods in their research. Practical questions about the meetings can be directed to Ben Nachman, Vanessa Boehm, and/or Marin Bukov. To receive email notifications about upcoming meetings, please register here. All interested members of the UC Berkeley and Berkeley Lab communities are welcome and encouraged to attend.
