Accelerated Introduction to Machine Learning


Advance RSVP is available to Primary Entry badge types only. Walk-ups may be accepted on a first come, first served basis.

Most AI classes are either too brief to enable programmers to use machine learning (ML) and deep learning (DL) from raw data to useful decision—and when to use which technique—or are too long to devote the required weeks/months for sufficient understanding of how, and when, to use ML and DL in practice. We will leverage experience working with real customers to deliver an accelerated introduction to ML and DL covering all stages—from data preparation to training to inferencing—with real examples showcasing the power, and appropriate usage, of both. This workshop will use pre-prepared scripts, data, and codes, and the ‘cooking show’ method of moving to completed versions of each step based on acquiring context and understanding, not hours/days of brute force data manipulation and coding.
