Machine Learning/Reinforcement Learning Reading Group

The Machine Learning/Reinforcement Learning Reading Group covers topics from several fields, including:

  • Supervised/Unsupervised Learning
  • Reinforcement Learning
  • Bayesian Optimisation

Meetings are designed to be accessible for PhD students with an interest (but not necessarily a specialism) in these areas, providing a relaxed environment in which there are no 'stupid' questions! Indeed, attendees frequently preface their contributions with "I should probably know this, but..."

Topics covered in meetings range from high-level introductions for non-specialists to in-depth analyses of state-of-the-art papers. There is also the opportunity to hear about and learn from each other's research, and to throw problems out to the floor to crowdsource ideas.

Meetings (usually) take place on Thursdays at 11 on Teams (until University re-opens). If you are interested in joining the reading group, please email to confirm the details of the next meeting.
