The Joint Chemical Engineering Committee (JCEC) Western Australia welcomes you to join them in a discussion on machine learning and it's application.

In the past decade, the machine learning field has grown exponentially. It has succeeded in solving problems we were trying to solve for decades.

In this presentation, we will talk about what machine learning is (and more specifically deep learning), and how it manages to solve difficult problems. We will have an overview of various problems and the techniques used to solve them.
