Head of Product, PredictiveHire

Introduction to Machine Learning

Regardless of your role, you’re bound to cross paths with Machine Learning at some point in your career; whether it’s a marketing play, a shift in strategic focus, or if you’re just looking for an advantage in the work Footy Tipping comp.

Like any tool, the better you understand how it works, the better equipped you will be to make effective use of it. The goal of this talk is to give you that understanding.

No experience with Machine Learning, Software Development, or Maths is required! We’ll learn what Artificial Neural Networks are, how they work, and the importance of good data.

By the end of the session, you should feel confident enough with the inner workings of Artificial Neural Networks to recognise opportunities for their use, identify risks in implementation, and bore friends and family at your next BBQ.
