18:30 - 19:00 - The flywheel of machine learning systems
Machine learning is not only mathematical or statistical algorithms. Machine learning is the engine that drives massive businesses such as, Netflix, Intuit, Autodesk and many others. The Flywheel of machine learning is hard to start spinning, but once it is spinning it can move huge markets. After working with these giants and contributing my share to their flywheel, I'll be happy to share what I learned and how you can get the most out of your business using the agility of the cloud and the power of machine learning technologies that are available through it.
