Want to learn the latest way to tech super hard? Or are you itching to know where all those awesome computer science ideas from the 60s led to? Come join the international phenomenon that is Papers We Love! We meet every month to share and discuss papers that have been influential in our own lives and learn what has driven others. It's a ton of fun and a great way to meet other paper-minded folks.
The Denver Chapter meets every fourth Thursday of the month at Code Talent.
Papers We Love has a Code of Conduct. Please contact one of the Meetup's organizers if anyone is not following it. Be good to each other and to the PWL community! Chapter Details
Sign-up: Please RSVP for meetings via Meetup.com

Hear Tracy Allison Altman [@UglyResearch (https://twitter.com/UglyResearch)] talk about a landmark behavioral economics paper, Tversky and Kahneman's Judgment under Uncertainty: Heuristics and Biases (https://people.hss.caltech.edu/~camerer/Ec101/JudgementUncertainty.pdf). Their insights challenged conventional thinking about decision-making, and inspired radical new approaches in cognitive science, choice architecture, and software design.…
You don't have to read the paper beforehand ... just show up and take it all in! :-)
Come see Aysylu Greenberg (@aysylu22) talk about one of her favorite papers:
It describes an interesting approach to data replication which allows for finer control over the probability of data loss occurrence and the amount of data loss during such an event. In addition, we'll discuss a technique for moving randomization from runtime to initialization to achieve the same benefits. After the discussion of the paper's contributions, we'll turn to pragmatic aspects of this approach.
Dinner will be provided (sponsors welcome to help out!) and afterwards we'll set out to one(?) of the breweries around the corner.…
