(ROOM N102) C.S 1.5. Understanding Machine Learning: Introduction to regression, classification and clustering. Powered by IE BUSINESS SCHOOL
Machine Learning opens the door to a new world of possibilities in many industries where the availability of data is only increasing. Understanding the basics of this new techniques is a must for most decision-making roles now a days. Being able to transform years of experience in an industry into predictive models, which can support the decision-making process, gives an unprecedented competitive advantage to all players.

(ROOM N102) C.S 3.5. Introduction to Artificial Neural Networks through R. Powered by IE BUSINESS SCHOOL
Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) are computational models inspired in the way biological neural networks work in the human brain. These Machine Learning models have obtained a lot of popularity in the last few years due to their capacity to detect complex patterns in vast amounts of data. Research in this field has lead to many breakthroughs in the fields of Computer Vision, text processing and speech recognition.
During this session we will demystify the way these ANN work by looking into the way artificial neurons work and the way they can be adjusted in order to predict the desired outcome. There is no previous knowledge required and every attendee will feel empowered to further investigate into this field in order to apply it to their specific challenges.
