The presentation will provide a short overview of machine learning algorithms for classification and techniques to speed up parameter tuning for models and model selection. The dataset used for this has NFL results from 2007 onwards. By selecting the right predictors, algorithm and parameters we are able to predict game results with 70-80% accuracy. This presentation is ideal for beginners who are curious about Data Mining and Machine Learning and would like to start with something fun.
