What we're about

ODSC brings together the open-source and data science communities with the goal of helping its members learn, connect and grow.

The focus of this Meetup group is to allow ODSC to work with Meetup groups, non-profits, and other organizations to present informative lectures, workshops, code sprints and networking events to help grow the use of open source languages and tools within the data science and data-centric community. As such, our specific goals are:

1. Build a collaborative group to work with other Meetup groups, non-profits, and other organizations.

2. Promote the use of open source languages and tools amongst data scientists and others.

3. Host educational workshops.

4. Spread awareness of new open source languages and tools that can be used in data science.

5. Contribute back to the open-source community.

Who is this meetup for?

• Data engineers, analysts, scientists, and other practitioners

• R, Python and other software engineers who work with data or want to learn

• Data visualization developers and designers

• Non-technical team leads, executives, and other decision-makers from data-centric startups and large companies looking to utilize open-source tools

Webinar: "Working with AI Services at Scale"

Online event

To access this webinar, please register here: https://aiplus.odsc.com/courses/working-with-ai-services-at-scale Topic: Working with AI Services at Scale Speaker#1: Mark Hamilton, Research Development Engineer at Microsoft https://www.linkedin.com/in/mark-t-hamilton/ Mark Hamilton is a Ph.D. student in William T Freeman's lab at the MIT Computer Science & Artificial Intelligence Laboratory and a Research Engineer on the Azure Cognitive Services Research team. At Microsoft he leads Microsoft ML for Apache Spark, an elastically distributed ML and microservice framework. His research interests include information theory, computer vision, and distributed systems. Mark values working on projects with positive social, cultural, and environmental applications. Speaker#2: Anand Raman Ph.D., GM and Chief of Staff for Microsoft AI https://www.linkedin.com/in/anand-raman-98394111/ Anand is the GM and Chief of Staff for Microsoft AI. Previously he was the Chief of Staff for Microsoft Azure Data Group covering Data Platforms and Machine Learning. In the last decade, he ran the product management and the development teams at Azure Data Services, Visual Studio and Windows Server User Experience teams at Microsoft. Anand holds a Ph.D. in Computational fluid mechanics and worked several years as a researcher before joining Microsoft. Abstract: Deploying Machine Learning (ML) algorithms within databases is a challenge due to the varied computational footprints of modern ML algorithms and the myriad of database technologies. This tutorial will explore the Azure Cognitive Services for Big Data: a framework that makes it easy to apply state-of-the-art intelligent models to enterprise data, independent of scale or datastore. We will show how to embed algorithms like OCR, Speech Recognition, Object Detection, and Sentiment Analysis into a variety of databases. We will also dive deep into the world of planet-scale intelligent services and our recent work to unify distributed computing with microservice orchestration. Finally, we will apply these techniques to demonstrate how to create a custom visual search engine for over 5000 years of human culture.
