Going for a little Benoit B. Mandelbrot recursion joke here with the title.
Seth Juarez (github) recently spoke to Pasadena .NET user group on the topic of Practical Machine Learning using nuML. Seth is a wonderful speaker, educator and nuML is an excellent library to get started with machine learning in .NET. His explanations are very intuitive; even for people who have been working in the field for a while. During the talk and follow up discussions, there were various technical references made which went beyond the scope of talk. To be fair with Seth, he covered lot of material in an hour and a half; probably couple of weeks worth in a traditional ML course.
Therefore I decided to provide links to these underlying topics for the benefit of attendees in case anyone is interested in knowing more about them.
