reCAPTCHA - A Masterclass in Machine Learning Culture
Google is a poster child for business success with machine learning. We'll explore how an often overlooked anti-spam technology shines a light on the way Google product designers solve problems, the culture of using machine learning as a tool rather than a product, and how to start imitating their success even before hiring your first data scientist.

Solving What to Solve: UX and Machine Learning
Machine Learning is fantastic at solving unique problems in new and exciting ways -- it's an excellent opportunity to discover valuable insights into your data patterns and relationships. But what if you don't know what problems to solve? Or what if you answer a problem that doesn't really exist? UX can help align your machine learning efforts with your users, creating human-centered machine learning with results that are actionable and relevant to your user base.
