We are also planning to test a live stream of the presentation on Twitch here:

In this talk, we will discuss the basic concepts of machine learning in the context of text processing and document classification. We will cover how to use the Python scikit-learn library to run ML algorithms in your own code. You'll learn how to load datasets, train classifiers, make predictions from new data, as well as save and load models.
We'll also go over how scikit-learn allowed GetUpside to quickly automate receipt categorization, reducing our operational costs and improving the consumer experience.

This talk is appropriate for anyone with some experience in Python and an interest in machine learning.
