About this Event
Machine Learning helps to make intelligent autonomous decisions by improving the underlying computer algorithms automatically. You experience this first hand each time Netflix or Amazon recommends a movie or book title to you. The basic process of finding patterns and then applying those patterns allows Machine Learning to make huge advancements across multiple industries, such as healthcare, automobile, finance, and entertainment. It also enables virtual assistants like iPhone’s Siri to understand and execute your commands.

About Your Instructor:

Connor Slagle

I am a data scientist with a fondness for biotechnology, with degrees in both chemical and environmental engineering. Recent advances in data science are revolutionizing all aspects of contemporary business, from product refinement to customer identification; In no field is this as evident (or as exciting) as in biotechnology.

I’m focused on leveraging these skills to improve targeted, non-invasive drug delivery in oncology. Additionally, I love spreading my understanding of machine learning concepts through evangelism at Galvanize.
