Just learned from Guy Ernest, that Amazon AWS is setting up a new grant program with focus on Machine Learning. The nearest deadline for submission is January 10st. Don't forget to mention I sent you!

"AWS in Education is proud to support selected research projects in machine learning and big data analysis with grants that offer free access to AWS infrastructure services. We are particularly interested in supporting novel applications in the area of distributed data transformation, feature discovery and feature selection, large-scale and/or online classification, regression, recommendation and clustering learning as well as structure discovery.
