Machine Learning for Fun and Profit
presentation: 90 minutes
Machine learning is a popular field at the moment, and there are a plethora of techniques and a bewildering array of free tools and libraries that are becoming available.
A lot of the literature is highly academic and theoretical. I propose to give an brief overview of some of the field, then narrow the focus on one or two tools and a handful of techniques and go through some practical examples. Give my background, some of those are likely to be financial, but I'll make sure to include some more conventionally amusing ones.
