This talk is an interactive and unintimidating exploration of the key points audiences need to learn about AI and data science. We’ll take a practical, step-by-step walk through procedures that can be used to explore data, identify opportunities to use AI, and best methods of building predictive algorithms. We will specifically identify analytical tools and statistical methods that are appropriate for a variety of needs and take a live hands-on tour of a statistical program, run analytical procedures, and analyze the output, giving ample time for questions and interaction. We will review machine learning, data mining, natural language processing, and a brain computer interface. This is a perfect session for those wanting to learn practical ways to apply data science and cognitive technologies in their work.


* Attendees will learn to leverage the differences between artificial intelligence and human judgment to improve professional judgment and decision-making * Attendees will learn to recognize the strengths and weaknesses of human reasoning processes and algorithmic processes and use that knowledge to avoid biases and leverage insight


Major subjects *Practical use case and understanding of AI and Data Science * Exploration of analytical tools and procedures * Discuss practical ways to use data science and machine-to-machine communication
