A Letter From

Our Founder

A data revolution is taking place and businesses of all sizes across nearly every industry have begun to evolve their corporations into ones that use machine learning, MLOps, and robust data strategy to grow and thrive. It’s no longer a mere “nice-to-have” capability. It is now a necessity for modern business success.

Predictive modeling is one of the most common enterprise applications of machine learning and deep learning. It allows us to find complex patterns in historical data for predicting future outcomes using probability and statistics. Not only does this allow businesses to make smarter, more precise decisions, but it also opens the door for process automation and in some respects, artificial intelligence (but don’t get too excited about that — we are still a far way off from what many consider AI).

Sadly, the demand for professional machine learning/deep learning engineers is far greater than the supply. There are two viable approaches for mitigating this problem that I see (unless you want to wait a decade or longer for the supply to increase):

Professional Training: Give your current workforce the skills they need to start on the path to becoming machine learning and deep learning practitioners. This option is typically far less expensive than paying top-dollar for Ph.Ds and can achieve comparable results.

Augmenting Your Team: Every machine learning project is different and requires a different set of skills. Often, you can fill some of these roles but not all of them with your current workforce. Hiring outside consultants to fill these skill gaps is effective two-fold: you can get exactly the skills you need and you don’t need to deal with hiring a FTE who may never be called on again to utilize those skills.

We live in exciting times where we have yet to see the full power of machine learning and deep learning outside academia. While there is, indeed, a lot of hype around this field today (especially in AI) I think we will see many promising applications in the business world.

Connect with us today so together we can begin your journey towards growing your 21st-century business.

We Create Data-Driven Business Growth

Every aspect of business involves data. We collect mountains of data every second for every transaction and decision we make.

Your ability to learn from that data and make accurately informed decisions can make the difference between excellence and mediocrity. Unfortunately, the decisions we usually end up making are based on our limited, human capacity to understand the data… or worse yet, our “gut-feelings.”

Fortunately, there is a way out of the cycle of gambling on “gut feelings”: data-driven decisions made possible through the application of machine learning.

Expected X has the expertise and practical understanding of machine learning, MLOps, and Data Strategy that can help you transform your decision-making processes, by developing the systems you need to make sense of your data quickly and to help you make objective, defensible decisions.


A very good survey of machine learning technologies

This was a very good survey of machine learning technologies. I believe the course functioned at several levels. I was able to digest information at a 30K foot level, but other students with more statistics background were able to digest lower-­level technical formulas. The class was paced so both levels of student could participate equally.

Now I know how to use Machine Learning!

The overview on various techniques gave a very good starting point on the toolbox of ML techniques. I also had never fully gotten the concept of Deep Learning previously, but I now know how to use it.

Real-World Examples and Useful Resources!

John’s machine learning introductory course covered an impressive amount of content in the short time my company allotted for the class. He provided helpful real-world examples and pointed us to useful resources so we could continue our journey into machine learning after the course ended.
