“Data is the new oil” “Facebook is farming our data” “Russia hacked our elections”. There’s no getting away from the zeitgeist that is data, how it is used, stolen and finessed to change the outcome of the very world we live in.
In this hands-on workshop, we will demystify the technology that makes data valuable: Machine Learning, and how it relates to AI, influencing an election and the impact on cybersecurity. We will demystify the roots of AI and Machine Learning, the basic tenets of both and get the audience hands-on predicting an election to bring to life some of the many algorithms quants and data scientists have at their disposal. We’ll leave attendees with a look into the future of AI and Ethics and what we can all do to take control of our data-driven destinies.
