Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence #9: Where are we at? 

Machine learning is one of those things a lot people need to get on top of to sustain the strong position we have in tech in Sweden. The area of Artificial Intelligence has been hot from time to time over the last 30 years or so. Today it's talked about a lot, and different names and concept are used which makes it even more confusing for people not involved. Joins us to understand what it is, what it can be used for and how to get going.

Machine learning algorithms use computational methods to learn information directly from data without relying on a predetermined equation as a model. Supervised learning and unsupervised learning are the two main categories in machine learning and the procedure is to gather data, prepare that data, choose a model, train, evaluate, tune the parameters and make a prediction. Machine learning tasks can be used in various applications and has penetrated all aspects of our lives. How is this field developing and where will it take us?  

Get On Top Of THINGS that Matters

At THINGS we have taken on the task to rapidly get individuals on top of hot and talked about technologies that we believe matter. Our Get On Top Of-event series aims to give you a rapid understanding of what the technology actually is, what it can be used for and how to get going. On stage, you will find people who are knowledgeable, have actual experience and also understand that you don't inspire people with a sales pitch. 

We are calling entrepreneurs, startups, enterprises, developers, students, academia, government and anybody else who are interested and want to get on top of things that matters. We offer 100 free seats at a first come, first served basis. Make sure to register now!
