• IBM Call for Code day and Hackathon - IAMAI

    IAMAI-Mobile 10X Gurugram(Gurgaon) Hub

    Hi Everyone, Call for Code 2019 is here! Call for Code is a global challenge that encourages the more than 23 million developers around the globe to come together using technology to solve some of the worlds greatest problems. I’m proud that, as a company, we are committing to this cause and will run a Call for Code day on 29th June , 2019. The objective of Call for Code is to create sustainable open-source solutions that significantly improve preparedness for natural disasters and accelerate relief when they hit. This year, the emphasis is on individual health and community well-being. This includes solutions that can: 1. Reduce the risk of disease 2. Improve access to data and the availability of resources 3. Address the mental health needs of those impacted before, during, and after disasters The inaugural year of Call for Code was a huge success with more than 2,500 solutions created by over 100k developers from 156 Nations, with many solutions being developed that will help all of us be better prepared for natural disasters. The 2018 Call for Code winner, Project Owl is currently being tested and deployed in Puerto Rico as part of IBM’s Code and Response initiative. You can learn more about what Project Owl is doing in this video click here to watch. On average, every day natural disasters will directly impact 80,000 people, costing the global economy more than $270 million. What if technology could help improve these figures? That’s exactly what Call for Code is setting out to do. It asks developers to work out how to use AI, Blockchain, Cloud, Data, and IoT technologies most effectively to improve communities’ disaster preparedness and resiliency . This is a competitive challenge, but unlike any other hackathon, the winners will work with IBM’s Code and Response team to deploy the solution in 2020. As a company, I’d be proud to announce that we have a team of developers among our ranks who’re changing the world for the better. In addition to the deployment, the winner will receive: • An invitation for each team member to the Call for Code Global Announcement in October, including travel. • A $200,000 USD cash prize. • Long-term open source project support from the Linux Foundation. • Opportunity for mentorship and investment in the solution. You can find out the details of all the prizes and the specifics of the challenge at https://developer.ibm.com/callforcode/ and make sure to Accept the Call for Code Challenge. Special prices for winners PARTICIPATION CERTIFICATE + ASSURED GOODIES Food and beverages will be served This is a truly worthwhile project, and I’m looking forward to seeing a lot of you at our Call for Code Day.

  • IBM Blockchain and Call for Code event (Hands on Workshop) - Nasscom Gurugram

    NASSCOM Center of Excellence-AI & IoT, Gurugram & IBM invites Blockchain Developers to “Call for Code” which is a hands-on code-a-thon to demonstrate how to use Blockchain & Hyperledger Fabric network to facilitate collaboration among non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in managing the supply and demand of goods to be distributed to the needy. The blockchain based solution enables NGOs with similar or diverse portfolios to be part of a consortium. When a party approaches an NGO with a specific need (say, books for education) and the NGO cannot address the need or cannot do it alone, then that NGO can create a new request on the network. Any other NGOs that can contribute would update the request over the blockchain network. The platform creates trust, accountability, and transparency of operations among the NGOs. 28th June 2019, 9:30 pm to 2pm NASSCOM Center of Excellence – AI & IoT Plot No 1, Udyog Vihar Phase 1, Gurugram https://goo.gl/maps/r4BCKin7J3K2 REGISTER HERE: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSc78vsSUp5AetNlxxXBRbOZ4-_a80Dji3TNXpxvpfUhQdjBfQ/viewform AGENDA · Introduction to IBM Cloud and Blockchain for business · Blockchain solutions · Call For Code Hands on - Facilitate collaboration between non-governmental organizations using blockchain Networking Lunch SPEAKER PROFILE Raghavendra Deshpande is an IBM Developer Advocate in IBM’s Digital Business Group, he works with Independent Software Vendors, IBM Partners besides Startup companies and Developer Communities focusing on developing cognitive, blockchain, data science & cloud solutions to enable enterprises in leveraging IBM Cloud & Watson and even making it as part of their core business proposition PRE-REQUISITES 1.

  • IBM Workshop on Machine Learning | NASSCOM CoE Gurugram

    NASSCOM Innovation Hub

    Most websites selling products online show you a list of items that you might be interested in. The better the recommendations the more likely that you will buy any of these, which will increase their sales. But how are these recommendations created? NASSCOM Center of Excellence, Gurugram along with IBM have organised a hands-on session to build a Machine Learning based interactive recommendation engine using Jupyter Notebooks with IBM Watson Studio, Apache Spark and PixieDust . When combined with Watson Studio and Watson Machine Learning you can quickly produce an interactive dashboard to explore and test a recommendation model. Agenda: · Introduction to Machine Learning concepts · Basics of Recommender Systems · Understanding types of recommender systems: - Content based recommender systems - Collaborative filtering - User-User collaborative filtering - Item-Item Collaborative filtering - Hybrid Methods · Case Study · Hands-On (Building a pixie dust based app for recommending shopping cart products) When: 27th February, Wednesday 10:30am – 2pm Where: NASSCOM Center of Excellence Plot No 1, Udyog Vihar Phase 1, Gurugram[masked]https://goo.gl/maps/ffKyRDTeVV12 Speaker: Krishna Balaga is a Watson and Cloud Engineer at IBM.
