How much prior experience do you have with Machine Learning?
wrote a book on SQL Server SSAS including MSFT Data Mining
Do you or your group/organization/company use "machine learning" (artificial intelligence, data mining, statistics, clever algorithms, whatever) on a regular basis or to solve interesting problems?
just starting - learning R now
Are there any topics about which you'd be willing to give a presentation (it's OK if not!)?
hmm...maybe, let me attend first
Big Data Architect ex MSFT - working with AWS, Azure and Google Cloud(s) - relational, NoSQL and Hadoop
