MLAPP Reading Group of 2024 Spring 2024年春季第二届“斛兵”机器学习读书会

Introduction 介绍

MLAPP reading group is for HFUT junior students to spend a semester to read the MLAPP book. We believe it is imperative to get a general and deep understanding of machine learning. We will embrace a student-led reporting approach with tutor guidance and review, enabling us to grasp cutting-edge knowledge in machine learning and related fields at an accelerated pace, surpassing the foundational content of an undergraduate machine learning course.


After completing the reading group, you will basically have the foundation to engage in artificial intelligence-related scientific research.


The best presenters will receive awards and small gifts from Dean Richang Hong! Stay tuned!


We have finished the reading group meeting of 2023! See this news in Chinese.
