Machine Learning 101 Crash Course

for Dynamics 365 Business Central

Understand what Machine Learning is, how it differs from traditional programming, how to build your own predictive Artificial Intelligence and consume it from Business Central.

For a decade’s programmers used traditional algorithms to solve specific problems. But did you know that ‘if-else’ is not the only way to write code? Did you know that data can be an algorithm itself! Yes – true. All we need is to use data in a smart way. And that’s where Machine Learning can help.

In this 2-day workshop you will learn

  • what general problems could be solved through machine learning?
  • what is machine learning itself?
  • how can YOU solve your customer problems with machine learning?

At the end you will learn how using Dynamics 365 Business Central and machine learning in pairs, you can quickly and easily solve problems that were previously difficult or impossible.
