RAID THE FRIDGE: Google! Machine Learning

Machine Learning for Dummies?

Yeah, why not. If you google “machine learning,” the top-ranked result will say it is “a type of artificial intelligence (AI) that provides computers with the ability to learn without being explicitly programmed.”

But what does it all mean exactly? Let’s find out together the current state of Machine Learning from Franco Eisma, Cloud Crusader at Google. He’ll walk us through the meaning and impact of Machine Learning to organisations, jobs, society as a whole , and what can we expect from future services.

Who should attend? While open to the #startupPH community, we’d like to make a special shoutout to tech and product teams!

We’re re-stocking the fridge, help us empty it while swapping stories with old friends or making new friends.
