Organizations are harvesting vast amounts of raw, proprietary data, but how do they translate that into information that increases efficiency, reduces costs, and generates new revenue? Advanced businesses are using neural networks, the most powerful type of machine learning systems. For example, the world's largest online retailer employs neural networks to predict items consumers are likely to purchase, and the IT department of the world's largest software company uses them to predict server utilization patterns, saving tens of millions of dollars annually.
In this understandable, yet in-depth presentation, Dr. James McCaffrey will explain the basics of neural networks, describe the types of business problems they can solve, and discuss the pros and cons of different implementation approaches.
