About this event

Do you want to know what machine learning is, how it works, what you can do with it, and why it is such a big deal?

If your answer is yes, then join our live session this Tuesday from your own living room and let the insights pour in. This workshop is useful for all curious minds whether or not you have a technical background.

We are delighted to be joined by Sri Ramakrishnan, a Google Developer Expert in Machine Learning. She will answer questions such as:

- How does Machine Learning (ML) work?
- Why is it important?
- How is it different from traditional programming?
- What kind of human problems does it solve?
- What problems does it not solve?
- How do you frame your ML problem?

After explaining the foundations, she will use several real-world examples to walk you through the entire process of how machine learning is applied to tackle different problems. She will cover everything from problem framing and constructing the dataset to training your model, as well as evaluating and improving your model predictions.

At the end of the workshop, she will share online resources that will help you get started with learning ML for yourself.

Sriranjani Ramakrishnan is a Google Developer Expert in Machine Learning. Her research interest includes Natural language processing, Speech Recognition and applying Deep learning/Machine learning solutions to challenging problems. She is always enthusiastic to learn from and share knowledge with the community. Connect with her on twitter: @sriran_ramkrish
