Exploring Machine Learning, AI, and Data Science

*DataPoint* Machine Learning and Data Science Summit One Year Later

Last June I attended the Machine Learning and Data Science Summit on the Microsoft campus in Redmond.  It was a conference that changed my life.

I was so inspired, in fact, that I declared June 2016Machine Learning Month” over at Frank’s World. I even live-streamed the kick off of Machine Learning Month.

Given that you’re reading this post on a podcast I started with Andy Leonard just under a year later, I’d say that the event has had a lasting impact beyond the first 30 days.

Last month, while en route to give a talk on Data Science in St Louis, I reflected on the journey that I’ve been on during the last year in this LinkedIn article.

If brevity is more your style, then I can sum up my experience last June in the following GIF.
