The Secrets of Machine Learning Revealed

Tuesday, March 15
3:30PM - 4:30PM

JW Marriott
Salon E
110 E 2nd St


Machine learning is not black magic, it's the automation of discovery - the scientific method on steroids. And the key ideas, once you peel away the math and jargon, are remarkably intuitive. Discover how we teach machines to learn, and what they teach us in return, from Pedro Domingos - world leader in the field, winner of the SIGKDD Innovation Award (a.k.a. Nobel prize of data science), and author of "The Master Algorithm: How the Quest for the Ultimate Learning Machine Will Remake our World." Find out about the five tribes of machine learning - symbolists, connectionists, evolutionaries, Bayesians, and analogizers - and what you can take from each to invent your own master algorithm.
