When companies talk about being data driven, one of the top initiatives is usually around "Machine Learning". You might think that this is a conversation for Data Scientists, but it's not. It's about what every business professional needs to know about Machine Learning to help make better business decisions.

In this talk we are going to talk about what every data driven manager needs to know about Machine Learning to make better decisions using data. Using case studies and examples such as revenue forecasting and customer segmentation, you'll learn which types of problems are solvable with Machine Learning and how to select the right model for the job.

Key takeaways:

1) Machine learning models aren't just for data scientists and can help anyone who wants to make better business decisions using data.

2) All models are wrong, but some are useful. Understanding which type of model to use for which type of problem is the most important skill

3) The FB Prophet Model is an easy way to solve time series forecasting problems without a data science team.

4) Classification and Regression Trees (CART) models are a great way to solve customer segmentation problems through predictive modeling
