Description

Join The Data Lab and Poul Petersen, CIO of BigML for “From Zero to Machine Learning: Turning your Data into Actionable Insights” at The Balmoral Hotel on Tuesday, 03 October 2017.

Machine Learning is transforming many industries while enabling new types of products and services nobody even dreamed of until recently. The global workforce cannot afford to stay behind the curve on this key technology enabler, however, there is a clear need of producing a much larger group of ML-literate professionals, such as managers, analysts, decision makers, developers, and subject matter experts.

Are you eager to make your first data driven decision? In this presentation, Poul Petersen, CIO of BigML, will show you the quickest way to get started with Machine Learning. More importantly, you will see some examples of the type of end-to-end predictive applications that can be built quickly using a Machine Learning API, saving you the grief of trying to productize a roll-your-own solution when it is time to put your models into production.
