This interactive tutorial session will focus on providing organizational decision-makers with a better intuition for the logic, uses, and limitations of recent developments in machine learning. Key discussion topics include:
• What is machine learning?
• When is it applicable?
• Why do we think it works?
Particular emphasis will be placed on the types of data/question pairings that are most suitable for machine learning. The session will include discussions of situations in which increasingly advanced machine learning may not improve understanding or forecasting.
This session is restricted to ACtioN Members and SFI Trustees.
