Predictive Analysis and Machine Learning

Each year in January I pick a topic which is going to be my learning focus for the year. Partly because I started back in January 2012 (yeah 5 years !!) but also because it creates a basis of knowledge and information to speak on during the coming year. Previous years have been

  • 2012 – jQuery
  • 2013 – ExtJS
  • 2014 – Angular
  • 2015 – Bluemix
  • 2016 – MS Office Add-Ins

While Predictive Analysis and Machine Learning are not exactly “Emerging Technologies” their wide spread use is becoming so. With the significant uptick in IoT and data collection in general there is a growing feeling that this field will become mainstream this year. This is an area of personal and professional interest and I have been looking into it for a couple of months so far.

I have no significant aspirations to become a professional Data Scientist, but I do believe there is very meaningful ways predictive analytics can be integrated into our business solutions.

As normal my main goal of blogging is for personal reference and to build a knowledge base for myself (and others if they want to listen). I guess we will see how it goes 🙂
