Tech Mash Up: "Fun with Machine Learning" - March 20th, 2018

Presented by IBM

In this session we'll cover a range of topics that hit the highlights of what is machine learning, how it works, and how you (yes, you!) can use it to solve problems and have fun. All discussion will be in the context of examples and code such as: detecting "bad" network traffic, teaching a machine to "read," teaching a machine to write Shakespeare, how to close a sale without touching the customer, and teaching a machine to recognize your cat. At the end of the session, you will be conversant in the broad topics of machine learning and armed with everything you need to begin creating your own solutions.
