Newsletter & Medium

UTMIST Short Banner

UTMIST’s newsletter, deMISTify, provides the latest detailed news relating to research and industry developments in the field of machine learning. Comprised of articles written by the department of technical writing, the aim of deMISTify is to spread awareness and understanding about new advances in machine learning by explaining difficult concepts in layman’s terms that anyone can understand. We do so through a bi-monthly newsletter comprised of content from our Medium publication sent to over 1700 subscribers. Our ultimate goal is the widespread education regarding advances in machine learning and its cross-disciplinary fields to those with or without backgrounds in computer science.
