1st talk
---------
For the first talk, we welcome Dmitri Lihhatsov (https://www.linkedin.com/in/dmlih), data scientist specialising in fraud at Revolut. Dmitri will talk about the fraud detection system he has built using Apache Beam and how it resulted in a fourfold reduction in card fraud by developing insights and predicting customer behaviour to identify fraud patterns such as abnormal spending - without human intervention.

2nd talk
-----------
Robert Bradshaw (https://www.linkedin.com/in/robert-bradshaw-1b48a07), senior software engineer at Google, one of the original authors of the FlumeJava and Dataflow paper (https://ai.google/research/people/RobertBradshaw) will go deeper into the technicalities of Beam. Specifically, he will talk about Beam portability and cross-language pipelines.

==================
Who should attend
==================
Everyone interested in Data Engineering, Data Science and Machine Learning, who wants to learn about one of the newer and exciting Apache projects focused on batch & stream processing of data. We try to cover both business value as well as digging deeper technically.
