Machine Learning for Decision Makers

Friday, November 02, 2018 at 12:00pm to 1:00pm


Machine learning has the potential to transform nearly all processes, but many of today’s decision makers remain uncertain about what it is… and how they can put it to work. For example, you may be wondering:

  • How can machine learning improve the way we make data-driven decisions?
  • What kinds of questions can machine learning help me answer?
  • How does machine learning differ from artificial intelligence?
  • Which data management systems are optimal for machine learning?

This 60-minute online learning session is a fast, effective way to learn from an MIT faculty expert in machine learning. Professor Devavrat Shah will explain the basics of machine learning and how it is being used to answer questions and make predictions across a wide array of industries, including retail, e-commerce, financial services, healthcare, social media, advertising, technology, gaming, and pharmaceutical.
