It’s Pi Day at the Davidson Public Library

March 13 @ 6:15 pm - 7:45 pm

It’s Pi Day with Monte Carlo Simulations

Tuesday, March 13, at 6:15 p.m.

Come celebrate hopefully the geekiest Pi Day event in the area! Learn about the history of both Pi (3.14159) and Monte Carlo simulations. Resume where Pythagoras, Euclid & Archimedes of Syracuse left off and learn how to calculate Pi using a Monte Carlo simulation technique. Additionally, a non-Pi related Monte Carlo will be showcased.  New to 2018’s Pi Day – we will also showcase how to calculate Pi using a Neural Net implementation of the Monte Carlo using Tensorflow!   Presented by our local Machine Learning Group. For adults and mature teens. Schedule: 6:15 – 6:45: Networking and Refreshments; 6:45 – 7:45: Presentation; 7:45+: After-hours social across street at Summit Coffee. No registration necessary, but for more info or to sign up, if you wish, go here.
