Talk Description
This is Data Analytics testing 101! So you've been dumped into testing software containing fancy-pants data analytics. The only problem is, you don't/can't/won't(!?) understand it and nobody is going to pay or wait for you to catch up to speed. Where do you get started? What can you test about algorithms without any experience or in-depth knowledge? Is it time to give up and start looking for a new job already? The answer to the last question is a resounding "no"!

Daniel will address all the above questions as he was in a similar situation only 12 months ago! Traversing buzzwords such as machine learning, data science and predictive analytics. Together we'll look at some simple methods, common pitfalls and general approaches that will make sense out of data. There's nothing better than proving that testers can test more than we're supposed to!
