Presentation

Overview

Machine learning is more popular than ever and it has become an essential piece of many modern web apps. Apps that leverage it are able to gain valuable insights from data and intelligently understand what their users want. So come and see how to start using machine learning in your own apps.

In this session you will learn how to apply machine learning to a wide variety of use cases, from making predictions and recommendations to creating powerful data visualizations. Each use case will use some of the machine learning algorithms scikit-learn provides out of the box. scikit-learn is used extensively in the industry but it is also great for beginners as its high level API doesn’t get bogged down by the underlying math. By the end of the session you will have a deeper understanding of what machine learning is capable of and you will hopefully be inspired to start using it.
