I just got back from Atlanta, the host of the Microsoft Machine Learning and Data Science Summit. This was the first year for this new conference, and it was a blast: the energy from the 1,000 attendees was palpable. I covered Joseph Sirosh's keynote presentation yesterday, but today I wanted to highlight a few other talks from the program now that the recordings are available to stream.

On deep learning and machine intelligence:

On data science techniques and processes:

On production-scale data analysis with R:

But for me personally, the highlight of the event was the keynote presentation by Dr Edward Tufte on the Future of Data Analysis. I had the distinct honour of introducing Dr Tufte to the stage, who has long been a hero of mine. Please enjoy his presentation, embedded below.

There are many other great talks from the conference available for streaming, too many to mention here. Check out the full program at the link below.
