We’re taking MLconf to NYC! I’m so excited to announce that we’re having our first conference in New York City this Spring!! I’ve been working with one of my trusted advisors, Nik Vasiloglou II, to plan MLconf NYC. This event wouldn’t be possible without the help from Nik and my NYC based eyes and ears: Michael Moss. We have a great list of speakers and impressive companies in the Machine Learning space becoming involved.
We’re implementing some of the feedback that came from our last MLconf. You asked for an East-Coast based event- here goes!! You asked for more female speakers- we listened! See the great list of speakers here. We are excited to see Corinna Cortes, Head of Research at Google, present on the largest known ML deployment. Samantha Kleinberg will present her work with how she derives inference from uncertain data related to Diabetes and how that interacts with Google Glass. Irene Lang and Anqi Fu will present on the H20 tool and their “R” interface.
Edo Liberty, Senior Research Scientist at Yahoo, will present on social network graph algorithms, and how Yahoo overcomes obstacles with A/B testing. Josh Wills, Dir of Data Science at Cloudera, will present on his recent experience with Building Production Machine Learning Infrastructure. If you guys haven’t seen Josh present yet- you must. Josh is a great presenter!
There are other interesting presenters on the agenda- don’t miss out! The agenda is packed with interesting presentations and we’ll also host demos and an expo from companies in the space. We couldn’t host these events without the help of our sponsors. We expect to have a presence from Databricks- the folks behind Spark in the expo. Our friends from GraphLab will also be at the event. We’ll have Tapad, 0xdata, and HiringSolved in the space. More companies to be announced soon! Interested in getting involved? Click here to get more information.
See you on 4/11!
