About this event

What is Machine Learning?

How does it work?

Can I use it?

Should I use it?

This 45 minute talk will help you answer questions like this, without delving deeply into theory and mathematics.

This introductory talk starts in the time before machine learning. We’ll explore why it exists and why it’s so effective.

You’ll learn how ML models are built and used and how two classic but effective machine learning algorithms actually work – it’s not all about deep neural networks!

Finally, we talk about options for introducing machine learning to a product, with real life examples of what can go right and wrong.

The slide deck we will share includes resources to help you continue your machine learning journey.
