Is the data science/AI hype relevant to DBAs? Yes! Hear Rafal, a data mining veteran, explain newest opportunities uniquely aimed at those who really understand data. While much of it relies on machine learning, and some statistics, 80% of a data science project is somewhat specialized data preparation, and feature engineering, at which DBAs excel. This session overviews the new new technologies, including Microsoft SQL Server 2017 Machine Learning Services, R Server 9.1+, and Cortana. Above all, learn what is required of you, your team, and the process. Everything will be illustrated with real cases, demos, and plenty of down-to-earth experience.
