OPENING KEYNOTE: Machine Learning, AI & the Future of Big Data Analytics

Businesses and organisations of all sizes are suddenly flooded in data from a hyper-connected world and need solutions to analyse and act upon it. Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI) have emerged to help understand patterns in the data, predict outcomes, and prescribe the optimal actions to impact those outcomes. New use cases for machine learning are emerging every day – ranging from predictive maintenance and fraud detection, to product recommendation engines and proactive customer support. Gain first-hand experience into how some of the world's best organisations are using data-driven insights to grow their businesses, operate more efficiently and manage risk.

The Big Data LDN seminar sessions are 30 minute presentations delivered by experts from the data industry. All seminars are free to attend on a first come first served basis.

The seminar schedule is a guide and subject to change, a final schedule will be made available at the event.
