From 0 to ML in a Few Clicks — Poul Petersen (BigML)

So you've heard of Machine Learning and are eager to make your first data driven decision? In this presentation, Poul Petersen, CIO of BigML, will show you the quickest way to get started with Machine Learning. More importantly, you will see some examples of the type of end-to-end predictive applications that can be built quickly using a Machine Learning API, saving you the grief of trying to productize a roll-your-own solution when it is time to put your models into production.

With 20 plus years of experience building scalable and fault-tolerant systems in data centres Poul currently enjoys the benefits of programmatic infrastructure, hacking in python to run BigML with only a laptop and a cloud.
