From chatbots to your home thermostat, it seems like machine learning algorithms are everywhere nowadays. How about understanding how this works now? In this talk, you will learn the basics of machine learning through various basic examples, without the need for a Ph.D. At the end of this talk, you will know what the Naive Bayes classifiers, sentiment analysis, and basic genetic algorithms are and how they work. You will also see how to create your own implementations in PHP.

Joel provided a good well-balanced overview on the topic, precisely as advertised. This was useful for me.

Joel had great enthusiasm and I learned a ton about machine learning. The examples were helpful and the talk had great flow and organization. Very good presentation.

A good talk that covered the basics well. It didn't get too much into overly technical details, but enough that I feel I can explore more on my own. Thanks for sharing the code shown, too!

Really really really cool. :) I came out of this already making notes for what I want to build.
