What we're about

#ODSC brings together the open source and data science communities with the goal of helping its members learn, connect and grow.

The focus of this Meetup group is to allow #ODSC to work with Meetup groups, non-profits, and other organizations to present informative lectures, workshops, code sprints and networking events to help grow the use of open source languages and tools within the data science and data-centric community. As such, our specific goals are:

1. Build a collaborative group to work with other Meetup groups, non-profits, and other organizations.

2. Promote the use of open source languages and tools amongst data scientists and others.

3. Host educational workshops.

4. Spread awareness of new open source languages and tools that can be used in data science.

5. Contribute back to the open source community.

Who is this meetup for?

• Data engineers, analysts, scientists, and other practitioners

• R, Python and other software engineers who work with data or want to learn

• Data visualization developers and designers

• Non-technical team leads, executives, and other decision makers from data-centric startups and large companies looking to utilize open source tools

ODSC India 2019 Warm-Up: Machine Learning & Deep Learning

We want to invite you to participate in the ODSC Webinar! Learn the latest models, advancements, and trends from the top practitioners behind two of the Data Science’s hottest topics: Machine Learning and Deep Learning. During the webinar, you will get to know more about two sessions you can attend at our conference in Bengaluru on August 7-10, 2019. Date: June 30th, 2019 Time: 11 - 12:00 am IST To access this webinar, please register using the link below: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/5798201301243123979 Agenda: A Hands-on Introduction to Natural Language Processing Speakers: Dipanjan Sarkar (Data Scientist, Red Hat) and Anuj Gupta (Scientist, Intuit) Being specialized in domains like computer vision and natural language processing is no longer a luxury but a necessity that is expected of any data scientist in today’s fast-paced world! With a hands-on and interactive approach, we will understand essential concepts in NLP along with the extensive case-studies and hands-on examples to master state-of-the-art tools, techniques, and frameworks for actually applying NLP to solve real-world problems. We leverage Python 3 and the latest and best state-of-the-art frameworks including NLTK, Gensim, SpaCy, Scikit-Learn, TextBlob, Keras and TensorFlow to showcase our examples. You will be able to learn a fair bit of machine learning as well as deep learning in the context of NLP during this boot camp. Deep learning powered Genomic Research Speakers: Dr. C.S.Jyothirmayee (Sr. Scientist, Novozymes South Asia Pvt Ltd), Usha Rengaraju (Principal Data Scientist, Mysuru Consulting Group) and Vijayalakshmi Mahadevan (Faculty Scientist, Institute of Bioinformatics and Applied Biotec) Deep learning models are helping to analyze and interpreting tiny genetic variations ( like SNPs – Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms) which result in unraveling of crucial cellular process like metabolism, DNA wear and tear. These models are also responsible in identifying disease like cancer risk signatures from various body fluids. They have the immense potential to revolutionize healthcare ecosystem. Clinical data collection is not streamlined and done in a haphazard manner and the requirement of data to be amenable to a uniform fetchable and possibility to be combined with genetic information would power the value, interpretation and decisive patient treatment modalities and their outcomes.

Building a conversational AI using open source tools

This meetup is supported by CoworkDelhi. Agenda:[masked] Registration and Introduction to Cowork Delhi[masked] ODSC intro[masked] Conversational AI overview and Business use cases[masked] Break[masked] Building a conversational AI using open source tools (Practical Session)[masked] Meetup Retro, Group Photo, and Closing remarks[masked] Lunch and Networking Speaker: Alkesh Srivastava, Machine Learning Engineer at Smalt and Beryl Pvt. Ltd https://www.linkedin.com/in/alkeshsrivastava11/ Topic: Building a conversational AI using open source tools Abstract: Conversational AI is changing the way businesses interact with their customers. AI-powered chatbots and voice assistants ensure that the businesses are ready to serve customers whenever and wherever needed. The conversational chatbots have come a long way from their rule-based predecessors and almost every tech company today employs a conversational agent to serve their customers. In this session, we will learn how to build a conversational AI using Rasa - an open source machine learning toolkit. The chatbot will be able to understand the user context and will help him accomplish his goal. Using an open source tool like Rasa ensures that you do not have to yield the control of your data to third-party providers. It also allows you to have a better control In this session, we will be using Rasa NLU and Rasa Core to build a contextually aware conversational AI. Prerequisites - Basic understanding of NLP/NLU is desirable but not necessary. Bio: Alkesh Srivastava is a Machine Learning Engineer at Smalt and Beryl Pvt. Ltd. He is also the co-founder of Voiceano - voice interaction design and development studio which builds conversational interfaces for businesses. Alkesh has experience in building machine learning powered conversational AI using tools like Dialogflow, IBM Watson and Rasa. He holds a bachelor's degree in Electronics and Communication Engineering from JSSATE Noida.
