Machine learning is a term that we may hear fee earners use, but what actually is it?
Machine learning is a subset of artificial intelligence, in the field of computer science that is centered on statistical techniques which give computers the ability to "learn" from data in an autonomous way. It is how PayPal can so readily and accurately identify fraudulent transactions. And it is used in ways you may not realise; if you get arrested in the state of New Jersey, the Public Safety Assessment machine learning algorithm will set your bail!
As technology advances and our roles develop, it is important for BD professionals to be on top of trends when speaking to others in our businesses. This session will demystify this complex topic by covering:
Alyssa works with government and private industry to provide economic advice and analytical solutions in the energy and commercial sectors as well as legal and competition matters spanning a multitude of areas.
Alyssa specialises in applied statistical and econometric techniques, data analytics and visualisation and economic modelling. She enjoys developing and applying these skills to interesting and useful problems to drive insightful and purposeful advice.
Before joining Frontier, Alyssa provided economic consultancy services to the ACT Department of Education and Training and was a consultant with Deloitte Access Economics.
