Event Description:

​TechBirmingham is continuing its popular Navigating the New Normal webinar series. Navigating the New Normal is designed for TechBirmingham members and member companies to present practical information, tips, and suggestions to our community.

Join us in welcoming Matt Cowell and Nathan Black from QuantHub.

Many of our long-standing learning methods have been largely misguided. How could we as humans apply machine learning methods to improve our own learning habits? In this discussion, we will talk through challenges with common learning practices, contrasting those with methods machines successfully use to learn, and drawing parallels to recent cognitive psychology research on effective learning. If you’re trying to learn new skills during quarantine but the information doesn’t seem to stick – this presentation is for you!
 
Matt Cowell serves as the CEO at QuantHub, spearheading the drive to help companies overcome the extreme analytics talent shortage and build exceptional data science and engineering teams.

While at Daxko, Matt led the team to deliver the first machine learning/AI solution to the market, predicting customer membership churn and also propensity to donate.
