Description

Come and celebrate the wrap of the second year of MLUX with us at the Stanford d.school! For our last event of 2019, we are partnering with the Stanford d.school to recap all that we've learned this year, celebrate 2 fantastic years of MLUX, and learn about the Stanford d.school's "I Love Algorithms" cards and how they approach teaching Design + ML (like this course!)!

** Space is limited, so please register on Eventbrite to guarantee your spot. For security purposes, we will be closing RSVPs 48 hours before the event, checking IDs, and cannot honor transferred tickets **

About the Machine Learning and User Experience Meetup

We’re excited about creating a future of human-centered smart products, and we believe the first step to doing this is to connect UX and Data Science/Machine Learning folks to get together and learn from each other at regular meetups, tech talks, panels, and events in the SF Bay Area.

Interested to learn more? Join our meetup, be the first in the know about our events by joining our mailing list, watch past events on our youtube channel, and follow us on twitter.

About the sponsors:

Stanford d.school

We build on methods from across the field of design to create learning experiences that help people unlock their creative potential and apply it to the world.

Design can be applied to all kinds of problems. But, just like humans, problems are often messy and complex—and need to be tackled with some serious creative thinking. That’s where our approach comes in. Adding the d.school's tools and methods to a person's skill set often results in a striking transformation. Newfound creative confidence changes how people think about themselves and their ability to have impact in the world.
