Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning have become trendy in software development. And technologies like Apache PredictionIO make them accessible for every developer, not only for data scientists. Join us in this session to learn how we created a predictive engine with the University of Palermo (Argentina) to solve one of it’s biggest concerns – student dropout rates in specific courses. After this session you will walk away with an understanding of machine learning concepts, common libraries like Sparks MLlib and scikit-learn, and how to apply that to your scenarios.
