"Machine Learning @ Google"
Why is machine learning technology important and why should the members of MTUG care? In this keynote, speaker Robert Cocks will explore several research projects at Google, and how Google has applied this research to real world products (for both consumers and businesses). Finally, the discussion will turn to near-future machine learning research, implications, and possibilities.
