AI, big data and machine learning is all the rage and, apparently, the preserve of top flight programmers. This community is intended to enable a wider, potentially non-programmer, audience to experiment with/understand/exploit these technologies more readily.
Rather than getting bogged down in the how you do ‘machine learning’ etc we want to focus more on the why. The emphasis is on understanding the capabilities of these technologies at the user level so that we can better harness them. Community based to encourage the sharing of information and free access to reduce barriers to entry.
