This talk will introduce Spire by solving a fairly simple optimization problem. We'll first prototype a machine learning algorithm, using Spire's type classes and operators to create generic, concise and readable code. With this in hand, we'll then explore possible solutions to some real problems that arise in our data using some of Spire's data types, like real numbers, polynomials and random distributions. The goal is not to get into the nitty gritty details of Spire, but rather to showcase how Spire can be used to create nice, flexible numeric code.
