Presentation Description

Presenters: Kirill Eremenko & Hadelin de Ponteves, Founder and CEO at SuperDataScience and Data Science Instructor at Udemy


Learn the essentials of machine learning including how Support Vector Machine, Naive Bayesian Classifier, and Upper Confidence Bound algorithms work. After this talk, you will have an intuitive understanding of these three three algorithms. And actual real life problems where they can be applied.


Learning outcomes:

  • Learn the intuition and how the Support Vector Machine (SVM) algorithm works.
  • Learn the intuition and how the Naive Bayesian Classifier works.
  • Learn the intuition behind and how the Upper Confidence Bound algorithm works, a Reinforcement Learning algorithm.
