[Online] Machine Learning 101: Hype or Reality?


August 18, 2020 4:00 pm CET

From developers, for developers.

Nowadays everyone is talking about Machine Learning. There are even increasing voices claiming that Machine Learning will revolutionize our society in the coming decades.

On the other hand, Data Science projects in companies often fail because of false and sometimes completely exaggerated expectations what Machine Learning can provide.

The aim of this talk is to give a solid, basic understanding of the topic: What is Machine Learning? What can it do? And also: What can’t it do?

The overview will be followed by a live demo of Watson Studio showing the Machine Learning lifecycle based on a real customer project.
