Feb 7, Keith Rush

I'll talk about the kind of work I do today, the way I got here, and any insight I can give for someone hoping to pursue a similar path. I'll also discuss some of the things I've learned, and some of the advantages and disadvantages a mathematician has in the machine learning and computer science world. We'll be sure to have a freewheeling discussion and a good time :).
