  • Dr. James Lawlor works as a data scientist at the utilities company ESB, developing projects using machine learning and predictive analytics. In his talk he’ll discuss a few of these projects in detail and how these novel techniques, combined with the explosion in the availability of data, can be applied across many businesses.

    Presentation Title-

    Machine Learning in Utilities (and Beyond)

    Presentation Synopsis:

    Machine Learning and predictive analytics are two of the hottest topics across many industries, and for good reason. These tools allow a business to use their data to move beyond simply reporting the past (“How much did we sell yesterday?”) to getting meaningful insights and predictions for the future (“If it’s raining, how much can we expect to sell tomorrow?”). In this talk I’ll discuss some of the ways we’re using novel techniques such as machine learning and predictive analytics in ESB and how, when combined with the explosion in the availability of data, they can be applied across many businesses.
