#splunkconf16 preview: What’s the next big thing in big data? Machine learning.
Big data, especially machine data, is fueling the latest machine learning (ML) trend and we’ve got you covered with 18 sessions at .conf2016. Cut through the hype and learn how to operationalize ML in your organization to prevent service outages, manage inventory, identify insider threats, or to simply manage your alerts better. Whether you’ve been using the ML Toolkit since it was introduced last year or you’re just curious what all the excitement is about, you can hear directly from Splunk product managers and developers and customers like Emerson, NTT Docomo, Dunkin’ Donuts, Zillow, and others.
