Machine Learning Journal Club Partners

The MLJC has the possibility to develop ambitious projects in various fields thanks to the contribution of high-level partners, that firmly believe in our mission: spreading among students interest and technical knowledge in ML theory and applications beyond the University courses. The technology, the tools and the technical support provided is turned into a great impact on students education while at the same time allowing the production of advanced open source projects. Nevertheless, the MLJC collaborates with associations, institutions and companies for specific projects and case studies, always respecting our non-profit regulation.
