About this event

AbstractMachine learning has been in the forefront of  researchers since the 1980s but the limited computational resources meant that the uptake of the algorithms was slow and it did not receive a broad recognition. Today‚Äôs computing power and storage availability has changed this and machine learning algorithms are used widely in a number of industries.
This talk will look briefly at the history of machine learning and the challenges that it faced, provide an overview of the principles behind the most common techniques and conclude with examples of current applications and opportunities to use open source tools. 
BioDr Aleka Psarrou is Head of the Computer Science Department at the University of Westminster. Her research background is in computer vision and includes the application of neural networks and support vectors machines in face classification.
