Overview:

Machine learning encompasses an important group of algorithms and technologies that are becoming ubiquitous in our daily lives. H2O.ai is a powerful, open-source platform for doing machine learning.

The first part of this talk will attempt to answer important questions around machine learning like, what is it exactly? Why is it so popular right now? This talk will also lay out some very basic machine learning theory, give some practical advice for applied practitioners, and provide an introduction on how the H2O platform works.

The second part of this talk will dive into updated features of the H2O platform such as Deep Learning, GLM, GBM and H2O’s recent partnership with NVIDIA on providing the fastest and most accurate machine learning on GPUs.

This talk is an introductory on machine learning and H2O, so beginners in either or both are welcomed to join.
