Mr. Youssef introduced Machine Learning at Speed@BDD in a practical and use case-based talk, enabling entrepreneurs with both technical and business backgrounds to understand the basics of this field and see how it might benefit and boost their start-ups.
The talk focused on the application of Machine Learning in businesses through 3 use cases:
- First Case: Estimating home prices with linear regression by using Excel Data Analysis Add-Ins.
- Second Case: Creating association rules for Subway Sandwiches ingredients using Weka.
- Third Case: Classifying IRIS flowers types using Decision Trees in Python Scikit Learn.
The attendees showed great interest in the field, and were able to get a good idea of the important role Machine Learning might play in their business, and many even requested to schedule a more advanced talk on the matter.
