Comment about the conference #MLVLC

The Machine Learning Age

We're entering a new era where machines are becoming much more capable not only in terms of exponential computational power but also on the level of sophistication of the tasks they can perform.

For the first time, tasks that were thought to be performed only by highly skilled humans are starting to enter the scope of intelligent algorithms. The fundamental factor ushering this new era is the ability of machines to learn from past experiences and to adapt to changes by harnessing Machine Learning techniques.

The old debate about the impact of automation and the jobless economy that started hundreds of years ago with the industrial revolution remains relevant as ever.

Will Machine Learning create more jobs than it destroys?
Will more intelligent machines really put humans out of work?
Which jobs will be replaced sooner?
What type of professions will be emerging due to new technologies?
How important is Machine Learning for your business?
