Title: "Machine Learning for Gamers" By Guy Royse (DataRobot)

Description: Many developers want to make use of machine learning in their applications but aren’t sure what sorts of problems can be solved with it. This talk will explain the sorts of problems that can be solved, what data is required to solve them, and what the results look like. And, we’ll explore it using fun and geeky examples. We will cover five major types of problems that machine learning can solve: regression, classification, anomaly detection, forecasting, and impact analysis. When we’re done, you’ll have a basic understanding of what machine learning can do and what you might want to use it for. It might even be something other than role-playing!
