Ray Fix presents "Artificial Intelligence in Swift: Decision Trees."
Decision trees are one of the most important and effective AI tools for classification. This presentation will give you a first principles understanding and intuition about how they work. You will learn about how decision trees can be built programmatically given a pile of data . We will also explore several improvements that can be made, including boosting, bagging and random forests. Not only will you learn how to build a decision tree from scratch, but you will also be able to use CoreML tools to tackle massive classification problems and deploy them in iOS apps.
