Generalization in Supervised Machine Learning (with demos in R)

Following Nick's wonderful introduction to machine learning, we have another fascinating talk, this time by Praneeth V of Blinq Media, diving deeper into some theory behind supervised machine learning (e.g. classification).

Speaker: Praneeth Vepakomma, Senior Data Scientist, Blinq Media

Summary: Supervised machine learning algorithms primarily focus on prediction and classification problems with limited data. The concepts of generalization and predictability are the building blocks behind the working of a supervised learning algorithm. In a supervised learning framework, the algorithms try to optimize their performance on unseen data using limited repositories of available data. This is achieved by the theory of generalization while keeping a track of prediction/classification performance. We give a gentle introduction to generalization and predictability followed by demos in R.

    i thought the meeting was wonderful. The knowledge shared in this meeting was something that I wanted to learn in my knowledge repository. I like the speaker Praneeth who was excellent with his field of interest. I would encourage speakers like Praneeth to come and share knowledge of predictive modeling, data mining and machine learning algorithms.

    Clear discussion of complex material, wish speaker would have talked more about how he applies SML in real world problems.
    Many thanks to Blinq for the pizza. Maybe they could talk about how they use data to solve their opportunities?

    Is it possible to keep this on some other day than 2nd Thursday next time? There is PyAtl meeting on same day.
