➀ Intro to supervised learning

By Sinan Taifour - Senior Google Engineer & CTO of CashBasha.com (http://cashbasha.com/)

In this session, Sinan will introduce Supervised Learning, help you build an intuition about it, and walk you through an example with Python using scikit-learn. You'll see it is pretty straightforward, and you might find room to apply Supervised Learning in your current or next project!

➁ Machine Learning in Practice - Hussein Al-Natsheh

By Hussein Natsheh - Data Mining entrepreneur, scholar, and founder of Ciapple

This session will talk about how to define a problem as a machine learning one. What are the steps toward reaching a satisfying solution from data preparation, feature engineering, evaluating suitable algorithms until releasing the model and putting it in practice. We will present a case study and go through some algorithms mostly implemented in Python.
