The Why's and How's of Machine Learning

What does an organization need to make a machine learning project successful? How can leadership make smart decisions about setup and execution of a machine learning project? How should one hire and support the staff working on the project? We hope to provide clear, thoughtful answers to these, and other common questions to get you thinking about whether machine learning is a technology that you and your company should think about investing in. We will discuss topics like data collection, the tradeoffs involved in choosing a model, and what to expect from a successful project, as well as how to salvage useful byproducts and skills when projects don’t go as planned.

This is a beginner session oriented to business owners and project managers curious to learn more about machine learning, or who may have an idea that involves machine learning and want to know where to begin.
