Coming to Cedar Rapids, Iowa May 16-17th, EntreFEST is a two-day conference produced by NewBoCo for professionals to come together and share ideas. ISE's Big Data guru, Matt Coventon, will be returning to the stage for his second year with another riveting session on Machine Learning.
Matt's presentation in 2017 provided insights to entrepreneurs on how to capitalize on trends in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to create more engaging experiences for their customers. This year Matt's session will get you from zero to up and running with your first Machine Learning model:
Data Science and Machine Learning skillsets are in high demand. There is continued, significant interest among software developers, technical leads, and business managers on how to apply these skills and related technologies in their companies. As usual, the hardest step is the first step. How do I get started? In this session we will break down the fundamental concepts in Machine Learning, outline steps needed to develop a predictive model, walk through the basics of development environment setup, and conclude with a demonstration of a working Machine Learning model in Python. When this session is over, you'll have a complete checklist to get you up and running with your first Machine Learning model.
Joining Matt at this year's event will be nearly 50 other speakers, including key note speaker Jerry Greenfield, co-founder of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream. Whether you are a developer, innovator, or entrepreneur, EntreFEST is a great resource for you.
