Applied Machine Learning – Of the shelf to custom Machine Learning

Machine Learning is not new but to succeed the basics must be in place. It is about time to get off the hype-train when it comes to Machine Learning and instead tackle the topic from an applied context. Therefore, we have invited Nicholai Ståling, Data Scientist and Machine Learning Consultant at Trifork, to learn you how to get started with Machine Learning. 

How do you get started with Machine Learning? This talk will answer that question. Machine Learning systems require much more than just training and prediction. However, the performance of the Machine Learning algorithm is the centerpiece of it all. This talk with Nicholai Stålung will give a brief introduction to Natural Language Processing, Image Analysis and structured data in the context of Supervised Learning.

What to expect?

You can expect to be introduced to

  • Pretrained models and their capabilities.
  • Custom models when pretrained are not enough
  • Steps to take when applying machine learning to your data
  • How to become Machine Learning ready

Target Audience

This talk is for tech people and tech leaders with a general or specific interest in how and where to apply Machine Learning.


The talk will be slightly technical, however leaders with some technical knowledge will also gain from it. Nicholai  addresses some use cases and topics that relates to the business. Hence, this meetup can also be seen as an inspirational talk about where and how to start addressing Machine Learning in your business.

Speaker Bio

Nicholai Stålung has a background in econometrics, mathematical modelling and financial technology. He currently work as a Data Scientist and Machine Learning Consultant at Trifork Copenhagen.


Trifork consists of technology experts that enjoy delivering scalable and agile projects for complex business issues. They have a passion for technology and develop their solutions, mainly using open source software.


At Trifork, they have been using Machine Learning as a way to achieve rapid growth through smart solutions. In essence, businesses are leveraging from the fact that machines are far better and faster at training models to identify patterns in data at large scale than a person, which businesses can benefit massively from.
