David last spoke to our group in June 2016 and he was fantastic! We are excited to have him back to speak about ...
Introduction to Machine Learning with TensorFlow
Machine learning is hot (again) and it's never been easier. We'll look at some ML concepts for beginners, illustrate them with a powerful browser-based tool, show you how to get started with open source TensorFlow, and learn how to scale up training to larger datasets using Cloud ML Engine. All in an hour and a half, or something like that :-)
David fell in love with programming at age 14 on his TI-99/4A, studied electrical engineering at the University of Kansas, and soon after wrote the first published book on Web servers (Running a Perfect Web Site, 1995). He has worked on software for everything from airborne GPS receivers to Internet banking. Now in his second term at Google, he trains Google Cloud partners and customers on big data and machine learning with BigQuery, Dataflow, Tensorflow, and Cloud ML Engine. Chandler holds both Google Cloud Professional certifications: Cloud Architect and Data Engineer.
