                                                The presentation is a must attend for operators, software developers and all online gambling(igaming) oriented companies. Google Search have been training machine learning algorithms since as early as November 2012.  Deep neural networks, modeled loosely on the human brain, represent the new challenge for SEOs. Just how can modern SEOs compete with machine intelligence? Paul Reilly founder and CEO, Media Skunk Works provides a gentle introduction to machine learning before covering actual, “in-production” specifics on how machine learning and natural language processing is being used by today’s SEO pioneers to compete with machine intelligence.


                                                Highlights:
                                                • - Two A.I. optimisations to safely increase scalability in link building.
                                                • - Google’s winners and losers classification methods.
                                                • - Camouflaging content marketing with natural language processing
                                                • - Techniques to dictate the modern SEO strategy: clustering and decision tree algorithms.
                                                • - Deep learning and how it may be applied to SEO

                                                PAUL REILLY is founder and CEO of Media Skunk Works A.I. Laboratory, at the University of York. Over the last two decades Paul has consistently redefined the bleeding edge of SEO, he pioneered forensic SEO and industrialised large-scalelink-building. He’s consulted with pretty much every big iGaming operator over nearly two decades. He insists intelligence and competitive advantage remain paramount for success, adapting to each successive new era within SEO. The A.I. Era is no different: "Tackling a deep learning algorithm with human scale thinking is insanity”.
