There is a lot of excitement and hype around Machine Learning and A.I., but there are few people who have a good understanding of what the different terms and approaches mean. This presentation will give you an overview of machine learning, explain how it differs from regular programming and traditional statistics, and provides suggestions for where it's appropriate. Our speaker also shares where to go if AI and machine learning pique your interest! The Speaker: Julio Barros is a machine learning consultant in Portland, Oregon and has been developing software for over 20 years. He loves all things data, AI/ML, technology, teaching and mentoring. Julio holds a Bachelor's and Master's degree in Computer Science from GMU and UVA respectively, is active in the community and runs the PDX Clojure, Deep Learning and Probabilistic Programming meetups.
