Introduction to Machine Learning

What’s machine learning? You probably use it dozens of times a day without even knowing it.

- Each time you do a web search in Google.
- When Facebook or Apple recognizes your friend in your picture.
- When Spotify or Netflix recommends you a song or movie.

Benedetta will talk about machine learning in data science and how Alteryx (https://www.alteryx.com/) enables analysts to make good predictions without coding. Examples will include probability of surviving the Titanic disaster, clustering beers and predicting popularity of NYC flats.
