Florida Atlantic University Students and Faculty: Join us for a meetup! 

Note: Attendance is limited to FAU Students and Faculty only. 

Machine Learning support in HPCC Systems is powerful and robust. Bob will present a quick but potent introduction to Machine Learning for those who are new to the subject. By the end of this presentation, you will have enough of the basic theory and terminology to make you dangerous. This presentation also provides an overview of the available bundles, including the newly released Generalized Neural Network Bundle (GNN), and lots more.

Before the presentation, we will hear from Professor Taghi Khoshgoftaar and Robert Kennedy, a 2018 and 2019 HPCC Systems Summer intern and 1st place HPCC Systems Poster Competition winner. Trish will wrap-up by sharing information on the many HPCC Systems student opportunities available.
