Presentation Summary:  Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning specifically are topics of much discussion and speculation.

This presentation will explore methods common to both Machine Learning and Six Sigma and will discuss the potential use of Machine Learning algorithms not traditionally applied in Six Sigma.
