DMI recently partnered with Smart Data Systems (SDS) in Dayton for a collaborative Lunch and Learn. Thiag Loganathan, President of Big Data Insights and Murali Umamaheshwar, Sr. Practice Manager, Advanced Analytics provided insights into the emergence of Big Data and Machine Learning Algorithms and their significance in recent times to enable data-driven decision making for organizations.
One of the most prevalent questions being asked is, “Why now?”. The abundance of data from a variety of structured and unstructured data sources with powerful information leads us to the question “How do we use all this data to glean insights?”. This Lunch and Learn was a deep-dive session on leveraging Big Data technology in conjunction with Machine Learning techniques to provide actionable recommendations, with impactful case studies.
During the presentation, there were pointed questions related to the selection of Machine Learning algorithms that are most appropriate to solve a specific business problem. At the end of the session, the participants were highly interested in learning how to kick-start a career in analytics and what courses are currently popular. We thought we would share some our best tips on where to get started.
Here are three online courses where you can learn more about analytics and machine learning:
DMI’s Big Data Insights team will be hosting another Lunch and Learn with the same topic at their Cincinnati location on May 31st from 11:30am-1pm EDT. If you would like to attend this Lunch and Learn, please RSVP to Alex Jones by Friday May 26th.
