For the latest in the TechMill Summer Series, Danielle Gaither will be talking about machine learning, which has been all over the news lately! Are we about to be overthrown by sentient robots?
Come to think of it, what is machine learning anyway? And is it the right solution for any of the problems you might have? Danielle will provide a brief overview of what machine learning is along with some of its more commonly-used tools. There will also be a discussion of how to use it and how not to use it since no tool is right for every job.
