Big Data, Business Analytics with Practical Machine Learning Workshop on Oct 10, 11, 2015
Big Data refers to the data which is so huge that it becomes practically impossible to handle it using traditional computers or devices. Big Data Analytics empowers you to extract useful information that follows certain regular patterns. When data size grows exponentially, it is difficult to manage and process the available data using trial-and-error methods. So in the continuous expanding data space, you need some methods of analysis which will help you evaluate any incoming data.

Big Data Analytics

Machine Learning helps you in the extraction of patterns present in the data which are non-trivial. Big Data is everywhere, be it webspace, social media, supermarket transactions, bank transactions etc. Big Data is data which is so huge that it is unable to process through traditional statistical methods. The workshop titled “Big Data, Business Analytics Powered by Practical Machine Learning” gives the participant a practical understanding of business analytics along with a knowledge of the underlying machine learning algorithms with hands-on experience. The participants will appreciate the applications of Machine Learning starting from predicting weather, diagnosing malignant diseases based on the history of patient’s records to recently developed Google’s self driving car. A spectrum of use cases across verticals like financial services, retail, energy, government, and e-commerce will be discussed. We shall show how to work with practical real life datasets to give the practical sense of working with large datasets. It is a two-day workshop and will be held on Oct 10th and 11th, 2015 at Dhi Leadership Center, Innovation Park, Bannerghatta Road, Venugopal Reddy Layout, Arakere, Bengaluru, Karnataka from 9:30 am to 5:30 pm.

Big Data

The workshop will enable the attendees to use different machine learning algorithms based on the available data in a practical scenario. These demonstrations will be done via User Interface (UI) tools and sample production data. The participants need not have expert programming skills, but basic computer skills are advised.
