June meetup: machine learning, blockchain and big data

Join us to learn how about how to productionize machine learning and get a perspective on blockchain and big data. RSVP here to save your front row spot on June 5, starting 18:30!

 

About the event

Usually a machine learning project ends at evaluating the model: Do we have acceptable accuracy? Good. Now what?! The value of a ML model though is making accurate predictions for the users, deploying and maintaining the model should be easy and automated. But how?

We will answer these questions by:
– preparing Jupyter notebooks for production as reusable code blocks
– creating an ML workflow
– and finally serving online, at scale predictions using Lentiq Model Server.
Along the way, we will use Lentiq, Spark, Jupyter, MLeap, Flask, Kubernetes.

Blockchains and Big Data play well together. One can look at a blockchain like just a new kind of distributed database and, at the same, realize that the trust minimizing assumptions present in these systems can unlock additional value for ‘regular’ big data projects – either by offering an alternative to centralized storage or by easing the process of providing data and training models.

 

Event agenda

  • 18:30 – 19:00 Registration
  • 19:00 – 19:40 Productionizing Machine Learning, Cosmin Pintoiu & Costina Batica @ Lentiq
  • 19:40 – 20:10 Technology showdown: database vs blockchain, Felix Crisan, Netopia
  • 20:10 21:00 Networking
