Machine Learning School in Seville

March 7-8, 2019, Seville, Spain

Machine Learning is transforming many industries while enabling new types of products and services nobody even dreamed of until recently. However, the skill set required to develop real-life Machine Learning applications have mostly remained the playground of the few privileged academics and scientists. The world and the global workforce cannot afford to stay behind the curve on this key technology enabler, so we urgently need to produce a much larger group of ML-literate professionals such as developers, analysts, managers, and subject matter experts.

To meaningfully contribute on this matter, BigML is bringing the first edition of our Machine Learning School to Seville. We will hold a two-day crash course ideal for business leaders, industry practitioners, advanced undergraduates, as well as graduate students, seeking a quick, practical, and hands-on introduction to Machine Learning to solve real-world problems. This Machine Learning School will serve as a good introduction to the kind of work that students can expect if they enroll in advanced Machine Learning masters.
