Realtime predictive analytics using scikit-learn & RabbitMQ by Michael Becker
scikit-learn is an awesome tool allowing developers with little or no machine learning knowledge to predict the future! But once you've trained a scikit-learn algorithm, what now? In this talk, Micahel will describe how to deploy a predictive model in a production environment using scikit-learn and RabbitMQ. You'll see a realtime content classification system to demonstrate this design.
