Practical Artificial Intelligence, Facts & Fallacies
Science fiction and inflated doomsday predictions have gripped the culture’s imagination as to the dangers and opportunities of AI and machine learning. Jump into the deep end with a data science practitioner to discuss the current state of AI in a corporate setting, discussing some of the basic philosophy, mathematics, and big data methodologies that underpins the current incarnation of machine learning. Explore the tricks developers employ to create the guise of a ghost in the machine.
John Wood has been a practitioner in data science for the last four years, deploying machine learning algorithms for analysis on client interactions and financial data for TD Ameritrade and more recently, LiquidMetrix (whose clients range from bulge-bracket investment banks to the largest hedge funds / pension funds).
