Machine learning and deep learning have emerged as the hottest technologies of the past decade. New and disruptive products and services have captured the imagination of global business leaders. With the hype cycle in full swing, an aura of mystique has formed around the technology. Business and IT leaders need an intuitive and practical understanding if they hope to make sense of the chaos and capture real business value.

This session aims to demystify machine learning. An introduction to the technologies will be provided – what they are, what they aren’t, and how they work. Real-world case studies will offer practical advice for how businesses can get started. Cautionary tales of machine learning gone wrong will be used to debunk common myths and highlight potential pitfalls.

Ultimately, companies must evolve from limited pilots to enterprise-scale implementation if they hope to capture the full business potential. We will clear the fog of hype and misinformation to help you get started on the journey.
