A Summary of ML Spends a Year in Burgundy
Jon starts his presentation journey with a childhood story. It involves computers and things, his childhood girlfriend, thumb wars, and other fascinating things. Give it a watch, get enthralled with a first step into machine learning for a professional web application developer, Jon.
Jon introduces us via this story, to some of his first experiments with machine learning. He had a great adventure a while back with Burgundy and wine, and found lot’s of data on the wine of this and other sorts. He went to work finding out the best way to find how machines could determine a place and year through a liquid medium; wine. Getting into the wine varietals, the grapes, and other related criteria, where they’re born, and additional data Jon made great progress.
Going further he found ratings and other peripheral data and that he wanted even more, needed even more data, but found some interesting answers along the way. To see, hear, and learn more give his talk a viewing.
