What we're about

To see all meetups in this group: https://www.meetup.com/pro/ibm-community/
This is an IBM sponsored Meetup group geared towards developers, data scientists, data engineers, and ALL Big Data, Cloud and AI enthusiasts. Our meetups provide an opportunity to work hands on with the solutions and tools in our Big Data portfolio and to interact and share knowledge with experts at IBM and in our extended community.

Our Meetups typically include a presentation from a technical expert that serves as an introduction and overview for a specific Big Data technology, as well as an opportunity to collaborate with fellow developers and apply your Big Data skills.

For Hands-on Meetups, depending upon the location, we provide a cloud environments that you can run through the browser of your laptop or a VM image at NO cost to you. Our Meetups are FREE and sponsored by IBM.

Meetup topics include:
- Hadoop-based analytics
- Open Source Hadoop technologies
- SQL on Hadoop,
- R on Hadoop
- Real Time Analytics & Stream Computing
- Text Analytics
- Visualization and Discovery tools for Big Data
- Big Data App Development
- Big Data & Cloud
- NoSQL
- Internet of Things (IoT)
- Deep dives into the technologies that makes big data processing possible
- Anything and everything about Big Data---is there a topic you'd like covered? Let us know!

For more information about these topics and this Meetup group visit: http://ibm.biz/hadoopdev or follow @Hadoop_Dev on Twitter.

Join us and meet fellow practitioners, grow your skills, and get a hands on software development experience!

Embeddable AI democratizes AI-adoption to enhance end user experience

Network event

Link visible for attendees

Topic repeated at 2 different times, please join the session that is best suited for your time zone.
Andrew Ng describes “AI is the new electricity” and just as electricity transformed almost everything 100 years ago, one can’t think of a single industry that AI won’t transform in the next several years. IBM continues to demonstrate leadership in the AI space and is set to revolutionize the AI adoption with the recent expansion of the embeddable AI capabilities that leverage the Open Source framework.

In this session you will understand:

  1. Overview of the embeddable AI portfolio, some of the key technology differentiators.
  2. How data scientists and ML ops engineers can leverage some of the key capabilities to build their AI-infused applications

Presenter: Saurabh Nachane
As a Senior product specialist Saurabh has helped launch several AI products at IBM like Cloud Pak for Watson AIOps, Netcool Operations Manager. He has always been a hands-on technologist and currently leads the embeddable AI portfolio. He has a passion for embracing new and emerging technologies with the intent to simplify AI adoption for IBM partners.

How to use Quantum computing for creative and artistic purposes

Network event

Link visible for attendees

Please join the session that is best suited to your time zone...this topic is repeated at 2 different times.

Now that quantum computing is available to the masses, what can be done with this new technology outside of scientific research?

We will be providing an overview and deep dive into how quantum computing can be used for artistic and creative purposes. Over the course of an hour, Wiktor Mazin and Russell Huffman will give a survey of how quantum computing is being adopted by creative practitioners, and then go through a tutorial on how you can get started by created fractal art with quantum information, quantum circuits, and using IBM’s real state of the art quantum systems.

All necessary tools and links to get started will be covered during this talk.

Presenters: Wiktor Mazin, Russell Huffman

Wiktor Mazin is a Principal Data Scientist in the Client Engineering team, a Qiskit Advocate and a Quantum HCLS Ambassador at IBM. Wiktor works with clients co-creating minimal viable products leveraging IBM’s data & AI solutions and platform. He has 15 years+ experience with a variety of data science and machine learning challenges across a range of industries.
Wiktor holds a M.Sc. in Engineering (chaos theory & Turing patterns), a Ph.D. and a MMT (eMBA) from the Technical University of Denmark (DTU).

Russell Huffman is a Design Lead with IBM Quantum, a Qiskit Advocate, and a Quantum Ambassador. He has an M.Sc. in Digital Media from Georgia Tech and over 10 years of industry design experience.
Russell has built his career at the intersection of emerging technology and design, including working in AI and quantum computing with several patents in both fields. He also has one of the world’s first quantum art installations, currently on display in one of IBM’s offices in Manhattan.
