The details:

Open Source Licensing by Frank Taney

Tech/IP lawyer Frank Taney will give a short talk on issues surrounding open source software licenses. He'll provide a primer on the legal principles that govern these licenses and the business and technological effects these have on your use of open source software.

Frank is the principal of Taney Legal LLC. Among other things, his firm focuses on commercialization of technology and IP, tech startups, and tech/IP litigation and dispute resolution.

Realtime predictive analytics using scikit-learn & RabbitMQ by Michael Becker

scikit-learn is an awesome tool allowing developers with little or no machine learning knowledge to predict the future! But once you've trained a scikit-learn algorithm, what now? In this talk, Micahel will describe how to deploy a predictive model in a production environment using scikit-learn and RabbitMQ. You'll see a realtime content classification system to demonstrate this design.

Michael Becker is a Data Engineer at AWeber and founder of the DataPhilly Meetup group. On a day to day basis, he spends a majority of his time acquiring, scrubbing, exploring, and visualizing data. He loves machine learning and gets his kicks out of clustering, regression and classification algorithms.

      The entrance is the main one on Broad St. You will check in with the guard desk (bring id) and get escorted up to the room.
