Machine learning in causal inference (Causal)Ed Kennedy (organizer, StatDS), Sivaraman Balakrishnan, Aaditya Ramdas, Larry WassermanMatteo BonviniRead and discuss recent papers or our own current work relating to causal inference using machine learning
5
DELPHI (Epidemiology)Bryan Wilder, Will Townes (Stats/DS), Ryan Tibshirani, Roni Rosenfeld, Larry Wasserman, Valerie Ventura (Stats/DS)Any of the faculty, or any of the students: Jingjing Tang (CBD), Ananya Joshi (CSD), Ruiqi Lyu (CBD), Anna Rosengart (Stats/DS).http://delphi.cmu.edu/Epidemiological forecasting is critically needed for decision making by public health officials, commercial and non-commercial institutions, and the general public. The Delphi group at Carnegie Mellon University focuses on developing the science and technology of epidemic detection, tracking and forecasting, and their role in decision making, both public and private. Our long term vision is to make epidemiological forecasting as universally accepted and useful as weather forecasting is today.

Statistics and Machine Learning Research Group (Machine Learning)Aaditya Ramdas, Pradeep Ravikumar, Aarti Singh, Sivaraman Balakrishnan, Cosma Shalizi, Ryan Tibshirani, Larry Wasserman, Nihar Shah, Alessandro RinaldoIan Waudby-Smith and James Carzonhttp://statml.cs.cmu.edu/We are group of faculty and students in Statistics and Machine Learning broadly interested in research at the intersection of these two disciplines.

Computer Music Reading Group (Computer Music)
Roger Dannenberg (CMU faculty), Gus Xia
(NYU-Shanghai faculty) and Shuqi Dai (PhD candidate and
organizer)
http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~music/reading-group/We are interested in topics not only related to Music Information
Retrieval and Music Computational Creativity, but also the state-of-art
results in Machine Learning and Deep Learning, including papers from
NLP, CV, audio, and data mining area. The computer music reading group discusses papers on music
learning, understanding, representations, generation, and signal
processing, with an emphasis on machine learning.

Andrej's Reading GroupAndrej Risteski (aristesk@andrew.cmu.edu)* The group is open to join *so long as they are willing to
contribute* -- this means presenting once every ~2 months roughly. I
help students choose paper or cluster of papers so it's something of
interest to the others. * The topics are related to things I
and others in the group work on: theory of unsupervised,
self-supervised, transfer learning (mostly in NLP and vision), theory of
deep learning more generally, provable algorithms for
learning/inference in latent-variable models.
11
Tom Mitchell's research groupTom Mitchell (tom.mitchell@cmu.edu)Tom MitchellTom's research group weekly meetingWe are an informal, friendly, collection of Tom’s students, collaborators, and other people interested in machine learning, including problems like conversational machine learning, never ending learning, curriculum learning, etc. We typically ask each member to run at least one session during the semester -- they often present their own research, or have us read and discuss a paper they find interesting. Other students and researchers are welcome to join and contribute to the group-- please email Tom.Mitchell@cmu.edu if you would like to join the group.
12
Multimodal Machine Learning (MMML) reading groupNicki Siverling (nickisiverling@cmu.edu)We will be discussing recent papers on machine learning methods to represent and integrate multimodal data.We
meet every other week starting Monday September 7th @ 5:00 pm. We will share details about future dates and topics to the MMML reading group list.

OOD robustness and generalizationSaurabh Garg (sgarg2@andrew.cmu.edu)We are an informal collection of a group of approx 15-20 PhD students who meet every week to discuss recent advances in OOD robustness and generalization. Feel free to reach out the beforementioned contact or join the slack group here: https://join.slack.com/t/generalizatio-zb85444/shared_invite/zt-1f1nvuh3q-B7YJOGTpeHJYCWn_b9UvNg

Smith Hall Reading Group (Vision, Robotics)
Deepak Pathak, Abhinav Gupta, Kris Kitani
Jason ZhangTechnically part of RI, but MLD students/faculty are encouraged to attend.
18
Nihar Shah's group meetingsNihar ShahNihar Shah (nihars@cs.cmu.edu)Read papers on peer review, science of science, distributed human evaluations. A subset of meetings will also have talks given by participants about their own research, and another subset will have external speakers. Importantly, the meetings are supposed interactive with lots of questions and discussions.
19
Logic and compositionalityGeoff GordonGeoff Gordon (ggordon@cs.cmu.edu)Read, discuss, and write papers about compositional reasoning, through representations like logic, polynomials, semidefinite programs, transformers, programming languages, etc.
