Looking for a pragmatic understanding of machine learning? Neural networks? Deep learning? Dessa (https://www.dessa.com/) brings you the Production Level Deep Learning Meetup. This is not about research or academics, it's instead about getting your models into production. This is how we do things at Dessa--we want to develop ML for the real world.
At the Meetup, learn from Spark and ML experts that dig deep into the internals of Spark Core, Spark SQL, DataFrames, Spark Streaming, MLlib, Graph X, BlinkDB, TensorFlow, Tensorframes, Caffe, Theano, OpenDeep, DeepLearning4J and more.
More hands-on than your average Meetup or blog post, we'll explore and discuss best practices and idioms of the code base across many areas including: Spark's JVM Bytecode Generation, CPU-cache-aware Data Structures and Algorithms, Approximations, Probabilistic Data Structures, Shuffle and I/O Optimizations, Streaming Micro-batch Scheduling, Performance Tuning, Configuration, Monitoring, Auto-Scaling, etc.
And don't forget: WE'RE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR GREAT TALENT!
