Title: Machine Learning for Non-Data Scientists

Jay Kimble

Target Audience: Some prior knowledge needed

Time: 2:00PM - 2:50PM

Track: Machine Learning /AI

Room: Room 4105

Machine Learning is a pretty daunting topic which seems to only belong to the realms of computer scientists, and yet it also sounds useful in many coding applications. This session will explore Machine Learning in an easy to understand manner. We will talk about the various types of Machine Learning, and will talk about how one doesn't need to have a Phd in Computer Science to use them. Additionally, we will also use Azure ML Studio to do a little exploration of how to begin to play with this amazing technology (and this too will be easy to understand). You should have a basic knowledge of databases (or even a good knowledge of Excel).. SO, you don't need to be a programmer to get something out of this.
