Diving deeper into the technologies behind machine learning

With a strong history in predictive analytics, OLSPS is one of a handful of companies blazing a trail in machine learning consulting and application development in Sub-Saharan Africa.

At this morning session we will demonstrate a number of the most popular data science platforms, and discuss the general uptake of machine learning in industry.

When: Thursday, 12 July 2018

Time: 10:00 - 12:00

Venue: OLSPS Analytics, 1st floor, Silvermine House, Steenberg Office Park

Machine Learning Technical Workshop in CT in July

WHAT TO EXPECT:

PART 1

Senior data scientist, Rikus Combrinck, will give a brief introduction and demonstration of five of the most popular data science tools:

  • IBM SPSS Modeler
  • IBM Watson Studio
  • KNIME
  • Tensor Flow/ Keras (for deep learning in Python)
  • R

This will give you a feel for the sort of problems you can tackle with each and how to get started.

Break for coffee and snacks

PART 2

Dr Michelle MacDevette, senior data scientist, will discuss why and how companies are integrating data science and predictive analytical solutions within their organisations, and will highlight the rapid (and sometimes not so rapid) implementation of machine learning solutions in the real world. In particular, a demonstration of a customer churn and fraud prediction solution will prove the value-add of predictive modelling.
