Join us for an evening of machine learning talks from Sara Robinson, and Yufeng Guo, Google Cloud Developer Advocate's with a focus and expertise in Machine Learning.

Our talks for the evening will be on getting starting with automated machine learning via Cloud AutoML, and then what the next steps are for using that as a springboard for how you can build your own custom models. All levels are welcome!

Agenda:
6:00PM - Dinner (not pizza) & Networking

6:30PM - Welcome Remarks & Announcements

6:35PM - Introduction to Cloud AutoML

7:15PM - The Path from Cloud AutoML to Custom Model

What comes after AutoML? You've created some models in Cloud AutoML, and they've been useful. But you want to see if there's some room for more improvement and customization. Let's see how to start building custom models and deploy them in production. You'll learn how to take advantage of state-of-the-art models, all while advancing your understanding of your data pipelines and machine learning.

8:45PM - Clean-up and wrap-up!
