APC Monthly Meeting
March 25, 2019 6:30 PM
534 West Market St Akron, Ohio 44303    Location
Host: APC

Chris Cole, Cole Design and Development MBA and BSEE from the University of Akron will be speaking on: Introduction to Machine Learning (AI)
Abstract: The ability to automate and leverage data from connected devices is fast becoming a critical differentiator for businesses. A significant competitive advantage can be had by using this data to feed machine learning algorithms that can predict outcomes based on latent patterns within the data. The technology behind these learning algorithms is comprised of what we know as data science. Machine learning utilizes these data science techniques whereby the algorithms get increasingly more reliable through a learning process. Machine Learning, the focus of this presentation, is currently the leading frontier of the wider field of artificial intelligence. We will be taking a quick survey of the various applications of Machine Learning, as well as the most common techniques used by practitioners.
