Machine learning and AI have appeared on the front page of the New York Times three times in recent memory: 1) When a computer beat the world’s #1 chess player 2) When Watson beat the world’s best Jeopardy players 3) When deep learning algorithms won a chemo-informatics Kaggle competition.
We all know about the first two… but what’s that deep learning thing about? This happened in November of last year, and it represents a critical breakthrough in data science that every executive will need to know about and react to in the coming years. The NY Times said that these advances “hold implications not just for drug development, but for an array of applications, including marketing and law enforcement”.
In this webcast talk Jeremy Howard, Kaggle’s president and chief scientist, will explain exactly what occurred, why it was front-page newsworthy for the New York Times, how it will impact business, and what you need to know to make these new algorithms work for you.
