Quarterly meetings hosted by the manager of Quantitative Science Division Operations Heraldo D’Almeida to cover the immense amount of IT assistance required by our ever-growing Machine Learning Department.

Machine Learning League Meetings

The Machine Learning League (MLL) objective at Moffitt Cancer Center is to advance awareness and application of Machine Learning, Deep Learning, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) across multiple disciplines in cancer research. This will be achieved by sharing the latest advancements in the field and brainstorming on how they could be applied to solving the cancer problem. In addition, there will be educational sessions on new tools and technologies that are used in machine learning applications.

League events will include guest lectures, presentations and tutorials, as well as software tools, packages, and libraries.

The Machine Learning League meetings are held internally typically every other Thursday at noon EST. This is an open invitation to anyone who is interested or wishes to participate in learning and understanding topics related to machine learning.
