Data driven innovation - a foray into machine learning

Anders Kofod-Petersen

Keynote - in English

Machine learning is a well established field within computer science. It has been living a bit on and off since the 1960s. Right now, we are in the middle of a software revolution, where machine learning has gained prominence due to access to sufficient machine power and amount of data. The power to learn what makes the world tick and to predict it can fundamentally change how we do business and software. So what cool and innovative stuff could we do besides mere optimisation, how to do it, and will we need software engineers at all in the future?
