Please join us for our next meet-up with Max Lin, technical lead of the Google Prediction API team! Join us at 6:30 for networking, the presentation will start promptly at 7pm.
Finding patterns in big data is no longer a question of when, but rather how soon. Even with the aid of machine learning tools, analyzing big data is challenging: resources need to be provisioned, algorithms need to be scaled, and predictive models need to be quickly integrated with other software.
The Google Prediction API now adds Google’s machine learning solutions to developers’ toolkits through a simple, three-step process. In this talk we will introduce the advantages of machine learning on the cloud, and discuss how the Google Prediction API alleviates the restrictions of resource provisioning, scalability, and integration in big data analysis.
Max Lin is a software engineer with Google Research in the New York City office, and the tech lead of the Google Prediction API team. Prior to Google, he published research work in video content analysis, sentiment analysis, machine learning, and cross-lingual information retrieval. He graduated with a PhD degree in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University.
