Abstract: Some of the most promising research opportunities lie at the intersections of different fields. As a small step in this direction, Chris will give a short introductory tutorial to the field of machine learning. The focus will be on the underlying concepts, illustrated with simple examples, and the mathematical content will be kept to a minimum. This talk will assume no previous knowledge of machine learning.
