Virtual Course: Using Systems Thinking to Guide Your Machine Learning Solutions

Uncovering the Power of Time

Getting Started with Machine Learning

Using system thinking principles to guide your machine learning experiments allows you to maintain a deeper understanding of the elements that influence intelligent systems and will aid in avoiding the common pitfalls of machine learning projects.

Join me on O’Reilly’s Online Learning platform, Safari, for a hands-on introduction to machine learning. You’ll explore scalable project workflows and common pitfalls and walk through the steps for developing and deploying production-ready machine learning solutions. Throughout the course, I will incorporate systems thinking principles as a foundation for improving algorithmic performance, providing a deeper understanding of the assumptions and elements (systems) that will influence (train) your models. This hybrid approach integrating machine learning with systems thinking improves a project’s effectiveness and ultimately supports the goal of developing machine learning solutions that make a positive impact in the areas that matter.

Using Systems Thinking & Machine Learning to Uncover the Power of Time

During the course, I will demonstrate purposeful machine learning using a sample time-use dataset. Time-use datasets include snapshots or summaries of how a person spends or allocates their time. We will explore how data can uncover patterns of behavior using a real-world dataset containing both unstructured and structured data. To begin, we will start with a training set of approximately 120K work day summaries (reflects approx. 1000 unique people).
