Let me share few highlights on the same..

It was interesting session we talked about how machine learning actually playing great role in business

What machine learning is

Machine learning can be considered a sub field of computer science and statistics. It has strong ties to artificial intelligence and optimization, which deliver methods, theory and application domains to the field. Machine learning is employed in a range of computing tasks where designing and programming explicit, rule-based algorithms is unfeasible. Example applications include spam filtering, optical character recognition (OCR),[3] search engines and computer vision. Machine learning is sometimes conflated with data mining,[4] although that focuses more on exploratory data analysis.[5] Machine learning and pattern recognition "can be viewed as two

We have couple of product already working on same direction

Popular open source framework Mahout
Product from IBM WatSon 

Finally we practiced same using Ruby. You can find code base at following github URL
