About the Event

In this session, the speaker will cover the basics of what Machine Learning is, look at the different ML techniques and methods, examine what a typical ML project lifecycle looks like, and discuss some of the most commonly-used, example algorithms.

This session will also include a 20-minute rapid mini-workshop via Jupyter Notebook where registrants will work with an example dataset from Kaggle and take it through the steps of training and evaluating a model to make predictions using ML.
