Demystifying Machine Learning
Presented by: Jack Cox
Machine learning is flooding into our lives at an unprecedented pace. It’s the black magic that helps Siri understand what we’re saying, gives us Amazon product recommendations, and drives Facebook's friend suggestions. This workshop surveys the Machine Learning domain and will provide the attendee with knowledge about the different types of Machine Learning, how the different areas can apply to traditional businesses, and the lessons we’ve learned on how to succeed with a Machine Learning project. The workshop also includes a lab where the audience will work with the presenter to train a machine to answer a specific question. This session will give attendees the confidence they'll need to approach the problems that machine learning can solve.
- Understand the types of machine learning
- Understand best practices for machine learning implementation
- Hands on experience with training a machine for a specific problem set
