The BIDS Machine Learning and Science Forum meets biweekly to discuss current applications across a wide variety of research domains in the physical sciences and beyond. Hosted by BIDS Affiliates Uroš Seljak (professor of Physics at UC Berkeley) and Ben Nachman (physicist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory), 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.  To receive email notifications about upcoming meetings, or to request more information, please contact the organizers at berkeleymlforum@gmail.comAll interested members of the UC Berkeley and Berkeley Lab communities are welcome and encouraged to attend.
