A place for beginners to ask stupid questions and for experts to help them! /r/Machine learning is a great subreddit, but it is for interesting articles and news related to machine learning. Here, you can feel free to ask any question regarding machine learning.
Natural language processing (NLP) is a field of computer science, artificial intelligence and computational linguistics concerned with the interactions between computers and human (natural) languages, and, in particular, concerned with programming computers to fruitfully process large natural language corpora.
Reinforcement learning is a subfield of AI/statistics focused on exploring/understanding complicated environments and learning how to optimally acquire rewards. Examples are AlphaGo, clinical trials & A/B tests, and Atari game playing.
A place for redditors/serious people to discuss quantitative trading, statistical methods, econometrics, programming, implementation, automated strategies and bounce ideas off each other for constructive criticism, feel free to submit papers/links of things you find interesting.
The aim of /r/Physics is to build a subreddit frequented by physicists, scientists, and those with a passion for physics. Papers from physics journals (free or otherwise) are encouraged. Posts should be pertinent, meme-free, and generate a discussion about physics. Please report trolls and intentionally misleading comments.
