Some Interesting Applications of Machine Learning Algorithms

Tuesday,  October 10, 4:30-5:45
Exploratory Hall, Room 3301

ABSTRACT: I will present a variety of atypical use cases and applications (in science and in business) of some typical textbook machine learning algorithms, including regression, clustering analysis, association mining, time series analysis, and network analysis.

Dr. Borne advises and consults with numerous organizations, agencies, and partners in the use of data and analytics for discovery, decision support, and innovation. Previously, he was Professor at George Mason University (GMU) for 12 years in the CSI and CDS programs, where he did research, taught, and advised students in data science. Prior to that, Dr. Borne spent nearly 20 years supporting data systems activities on NASA space science research programs, including a role as NASA’s Data Archive Project Scientist for the Hubble Space Telescope.

Recently, Dr. Borne was ranked #2 worldwide among all Big Data experts to follow.  http://ipfconline.fr/blog/2017/05/22/fine-list-of-50-top-world-big-data-experts-to-follow-in-2017-with-moz-social-score/
