In this presentation I will provide an introduction to the field of machine learning from the perspective of a data scientist. I will introduce the basics of classification and regression models, and walk through the data preparation, training, and performance evaluation of a simple machine learning model. If you've heard about machine learning and wondering how you can build your own predictive models, then this presentation is for you!
