Big Data, from technology to business potential

We are thrilled to have Eric Brill, VP of Research at eBay, to kick off our Big Data Bellevue meetup in 2014. 

Bio:Eric Brill is VP of Research, eBay. He manages research teams in areas including: Vision Processing, Economics, Statistics, Machine Learning, Human-Computer Interaction.

Talk Title: How to be Successful, Happy, and Rich

Abstract: Over the years, I have observed zillions of tech people develop their careers. Some have become successful, happy and rich. Others have not. I will discuss some of the attributes (other than luck) that seem to be shared by the first population and lacking in the second.

Bring your questions, ideas, suggestions, and afterwards join us for big pizza!

    Not about Big Data. About having a Big Career and a Big Life. Interesting and obviously well thought out perspectives.

    Used Eric's advise today. Didn't expect this kind of career talk at the big data meetup, but gave me a lot to think about.

      I agree! I have witnessed these traits in the most successful and happy people I know, and personally practice them in my own life and career. I had to leave a little early to grab my son from work and would love to see the whole deck be posted. Nice to mix up technology education with themes that ignite passion and inspiration. Loving what we do surely is our differentiator! Thanks Eric!
