What we're about

This group is for anyone interested in practical applications of machine learning, deep learning, artificial intelligence and big data.

There's a lot of theoretical research out there, but not much practical application. I created this meetup for people who are trying to build and create things.

We'll meet once a month to exchange ideas and talk about what we're working on, types of frameworks, coding languages, demos & etc.

In the future I want to bring in scientists from Facebook, Google and other companies that have scaled up research and applied it in their products.

All levels of expertise are welcome. You could be a student with a keen interest in AI, a scientist looking for case studies of applied machine learning or a startup wanting to meet other startups who are also in this industry.

Looking forward to getting to know everybody and exploring this new frontier!

This will be a joint Meetup event with the NYC NewSQL/NoSQL Group http://www.NYCSQL.com/events/261331413 Low latency is a gateway for the next generation of computing and data processing that enables us to create applications that were previously unimaginable. These applications can incorporate AI constructs while operating at the edge of a network, and do it all in real time. In this presentation we will discuss: ‣ Application architecture for reducing latency ‣ The business impact of latency in applications ‣ Building latency killing applications ‣ In-memory partitioned data storage ‣ How to process data streams in real-time ••• Joe Sherwin, Senior Solution Architect, Hazelcast ••• Joe Sherwin is a senior level Solution Architect at Hazelcast with 23 years of experience in the design, development and implementation of application systems within multi-tier distributed computing environments.
