Topic :

Machine Learning with Open Source Tools

Abstract :

Using Python one can leverage mature open source machine learning tools. First we will discuss how to pose a machine learning problem, next we will discuss two example cases. The first example will of use decision tree classifiers from scikit-learn to train data and predict geological formations from log curves. The second will consider using Tkinter and PyBrain for quickly generating training data and then building a neural network for prediction. The advantage of using open source tools is that they can be picked apart, modified, and recombined in ways that more user-friendly analysis software and dashboards cannot.
