    A machine learning (ML) system uses data to make predictions. Neural network classifiers model biological neurons and synapses and are the most powerful type of ML system. In this informal, but in-depth presentation, Dr. James McCaffrey of Microsoft Research will explain in simple terms exactly what neural networks are. You will learn what types of problems neural networks can solve and the pros and cons of different approaches. This session avoids mathematics and Greek letters and is intended for people with both technical and non-technical backgrounds.
