Hello NBers,

*T**omorrow* at *6:30*, you are invited to join us as we investigate how
to make better inferences using Bayesian heuristics and algorithms. 

You are welcome to bring your own data, qnd/or you can take part in
designing and implementing your very own Bayesian spam filter on the
infamous noisebridge-discuss archive. 

If you have your own project, you are encouraged to talk about it and/or
work on it as well. 
part of our machine learning
<https://noisebridge.net/wiki/Machine_Learning> series. 

Food, beer, and cheer are all greatly appreciated.
