Machine Learning is Hard (And You're Probably Not Very Good At It)

Hosted at Walmart Innovation Lab! Come see Randi Ludwig talk about why Machine Learning is Hard! Abstract: Companies all over the world are struggling to realize the value of data science and machine learning models – why is that? There is so much more to machine learning than building a model. As DJ Patil said, “Data science is a team sport” and no machine learning model can provide value without the interwoven collaboration of many people on many teams across the business. We’ll examine some of the thorny areas that can impede machine learning success, both technical and human, and suggest strategies for how to overcome them. Agenda: 5:30-6:30 Dinner and Connect 6:30-6:45 Announcements 6:45-7:45 "Machine Learning is Hard" 7:30-8:30 Connect
