Following on from our Inaugural Manchester Machine Learning (MancML) evening in November we are putting on another celebration of all the exciting Machine Learning things that are happening in and around Manchester.
If you are working with ML/AI, interested in the field or just plain hungry come down for an evening of Pizza, Beer and Amazing Speakers!
And it is all free - courtesy of:
* Our sponsor Cathcart Associates - Technology recruiters extraordinaire.
* Our partners, Peak - pioneers of data analytics-as-a-service.
* Our hosts Co-op Digital
* And, of course, our speakers Stuart Davie, Dom Clarke, Gary Pretty, Co-op Digital, Steven Booth, Erol-valeriu Chioasca, Paul Maddox and more to come
Peak is honoured to host the next MancML event with Cathcart Associates and Octavia.ai at the Co-op Digital offices in Co-op Federation House.
Massive companies (like Airbnb, Amazon & Uber etc.) are innovating with Machine Learning and Data Analytics tools, and they continue to grow at incredible pace. So we ask, 'How do we keep up?' and 'Are you prepared to get your digital business ready for the Data Economy era?'
Machine Learning is an essential part of Peak's Data Analytics-as-a-Service as it helps us achieve ongoing automation and product improvement for our customers. Data Science methods can be complicated at times, but we believe that businesses of all sizes can be helped with understanding the benefits of using Machine Learning for use with their own products/services. Events like MancML make it much easier for everyone to get more involved with Machine Learning. We’re amazed to see a growing community of Founders, Software Engineers, Data Scientists, Data Analysts (and many others from the digital and tech scene) come together from across the entire North West to share facts, learnings, and demonstrate the endless possibilities of how Machine Learning can optimise and grow a business. Anyone is welcome to join, whether you’re completely new to the concept of Machine Learning, or an industry expert!
