Machine Learning has begun to transform the way the world operates. The spam filter in your email uses Machine Learning to decide what is spam and what is not. In this panel talk, we are going to discuss how Machine Learning is empowering our world in various domains and why it will play a key role in our future daily life. MachineLearning enables computers to predict unknown or the future by learning from data. Panelists, representing different parts of the ecosystem, will share their own experiences on how entrepreneurs, data scientists and developers can benefit from the power of Machine Learning. We'll discuss how Machine Learning is shaping life from applications like real-world translation to making basic Machine Learning tools available to the masses.
