This talk will focus on various Artificial Intelligence (AI) Techniques that are commonly used in Data Science activities. Special focus will be on different problems types that Data Scientist encounters. Some examples of problems include Classification problems, Regression problems, Relationship Analytics, Feature Engineering, Decisioning, and Question-Answering. In other words, we will explore what tools and techniques are essential in a Data Science Toolbox.
Dr. Lukose has over 25 years of experience in professional consulting services, applied research and development in Artificial Intelligence Systems. Prior to joining Monash Data Futures Institute at Monash University, Dr Lukose was the Chief Data Scientist at GCS Agile Pty. Ltd.
