How to leverage relationships in the network for machine learning purposes?

Raamstraat 7-I, 1016 XL Amsterdam

Network science saw a booming interest in recent years. A network (or graph) is a data structure that allows to express complex relationships in a compact and elegant way. But is it possible to leverage hidden relationships in the network for machine learning purposes? Join us in the May edition of the Data & Drinks event series taking place at Xomnia's HQ in the heart of Amsterdam to know more about graph data and machine learning. This event is suited for network science enthusiasts, data scientists, MLEs and anyone who is curious about new exciting applications of machine learning. Our guest speakers will discuss the basics of the theory behind this new field and some of the most interesting applications, from automatic drone driving to recommender systems.
