Machine Learning in the Elastic Stack

Data stored in Elasticsearch contains valuable insights into the behavior and performance of your business and systems. However, questions such as "are users exfiltrating data unusually?" and "is the response time of my website unusual?" can be difficult to answer.

The good news is that machine learning technologies, from the recently acquired Prelert team, can easily answer these questions. These technologies are becoming part of X-Pack and will integrate tightly into the Elastic Stack.

Attend this session to learn how to apply machine learning capabilities to the Elastic Stack and what problems they will help you solve in your business.
