Smart Data Webinar Series

About the Webinar

Science and engineering are complementary disciplines, and in their distinctions, we see promise for an expanded role for machine learning (ML). The goal of science is discovery – identifying patterns of evidence that point to fundamental truths. Engineering uses this knowledge to build systems and solutions to problems. Science discovers the truth, engineering uses the understanding of truth to create. Within the #ModernAI landscape, machine learning has become the gold-standard for pattern discovery. Applications ranging from the identification of cat images on YouTube to autonomous vehicle control have captured the imagination. Less heralded are opportunities to apply ML to systems that understand what they have discovered. That’s the next frontier.

This webinar will present an overview of ML fundamentals and then show examples and a framework to identify opportunities for ML-enabled understanding.

    Nobody is better ‘spaining this stuff than Adrian. IMHO, there is no better treatise about semantic data concepts on the web, in articles or in books. Adrian makes it easier to understand shared concepts among seemingly different semantic technologies.
