Machine learning is the next great computer revolution, one that is already here. We don’t have to wait for the future; Google has been using machine learning to solve many complex search-related problems for years, and the applications keep growing, including last year’s announcement of the addition of RankBrain to the search algorithm and the impact of machine learning on search. Google's RankBrain algorithm caused major confusion in the digital marketing community. This presentation will show you what RankBrain really is about, what else Google is likely to do with machine learning, and how it impacts your #SEO strategy. This slide was presented at Zenith Conference in Duluth, MN.
