The next chapter: Data analytics and machine learning

Kiwi Dr Mark Hall, machine learning architect at Hitachi Vantara – and one of the original creators of the Weka machine learning framework – outlines the future of machine learning and its crossover with data and problem solving.

We’re really excited to present one of the biggest brains in the business of machine learning and data problem solving.

Please join us to hear Dr Mark Hall share his journey from studying computer science at Waikato University to working at the vanguard of machine learning and data analytics with Hitachi Vantara.

Mark will lift the lid on machine learning at work in IOT, healthcare, banking, and government, including case studies covering diabetes risk profiles in large populations, and credit card fraud.

You’ll also learn how new tools make quick work of creating 360° analytical views of customers, business assets, imagery – even social feeds and IoT networks.

Go beyond the buzzwords. Learn from the master.

Join us for what will be a riveting 2-hour session.
