Enable Data Infrastructure for Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Artificial Intelligence is a way to use machines to improve or emulate human or biological performance. A subcategory of that is machine learning which leverages both data and analytic algorithms to build models that when trained on existing data, can be used to make inferences based on new data. Analytics can provide powerful prescriptive information to inform the company and organizational decision making. In this presentation, we will discuss ways that one can analyze and prepare their data infrastructure to enable and make effective use of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. Data capture, transformation techniques, data base products, and modern cloud data sharing platforms will be discussed.
