Presenter: Richard Irwin

Runtime: 23 minutes

There is a great deal of talk and buzz around machine learning, and how it will revolutionize and transform business and industry. A number of vendors are now claiming to provide artificial intelligence and machine learning solutions, and companies are hoping to take advantage of this forward-thinking technology. But how much should we believe about how machine learning and AI can really transform industry decision making?
