Machine Learning with Daniel Longest - Part 2

Thu, 3 Nov 2016, 18:00 - 21:00 (Add to calendar) GMT
4600 Cox Rd , Glen Allen, US

Machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence are hot topics, but both are based on concepts that can be arcane and at times unapproachable.  And historically .NET has lagged behind other open source languages like R and Python in its ML friendliness.  Where does that leave the developer who wants to put ML to use but not abandon the familiar landscape of .NET?  The great news is there's no longer any reason to leave .NET just to gain access to ML capabilities and and with a little effort, we can demystify the world of ML and open up a new world of business opportunities.
