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

Topic: Introducing Milvus v2.0

Speaker #1: Xiaofan Luan, Zilliz cloud platform developer

Graduated from Cornell University with a master's degree in Computer Science. He has more than 7 years of experience in data storage, database development, and architecture design. Before joining Zilliz, he worked in Oracle, Hedvig, and the Alibaba Cloud database team. Currently, he is in charge of Milvus, an open source vector database, and Zilliz cloud platform development.

Speaker #2: Filip Haltmayer, Data Engineer at Zilliz

After graduating from the University of California Santa Cruz with a B.S. in Computer Science, he took a position at Zilliz as a Data Engineer on the company’s User Success Team. Fillip provides technical help to users and builds unstructured data solutions that leverage Milvus, an open-source vector database

Abstract:

Learn about Milvus v2.0 and the groundbreaking functionality developed by the Milvus core team. v2.0 includes feedback from over 1000+ enterprise users and 10,000 community members in order to build a better database to serve enterprises in more AI and big data scenarios.

After gathering this feedback and invaluable use cases, we are pleased to launch Milvus v2.0.

This version has made significant progress in Milvus as a cloud native and distributed system. In this talk, we will introduce the main features, functionality and future prospects of Milvus v2 .0

LIVE TRAINING: Time Series Forecasting (with Python)

Online event

This is a PAID event.

Registration is required: https://aiplus.training/live/time-series-forecasting-with-python/

Level intermediate

Instructor's bio: Marta Markiewicz, Senior Data Scientist at InPost

Currently Senior (Big) Data Scientist at InPost and Lecturer at Wroclaw University of Economics and Business, previously Head of Data Science at Objectivity, with a background in Mathematical Statistics. For almost 10 years, she has been discovering the potential of data in various business domains, from medical data, through retail, HR, finance, aviation, real estate, logistics, … She deeply believes in the power of data in every area of life. Articles’ writer, conference speaker and privately – passionate dancer and hand-made jewellery creator.

Abstract:

Despite being not the youngest branch of data analysis, time series forecasting still poses a great challenge to both researchers and practitioners. As Niels Bohr said years ago “Prediction is very difficult, especially when it’s about the future”. Fortunately, plurality of approaches have been proposed to address this commonly appearing challenge. This course introduces the users to the most prominent and widely used solutions, explaining their advantages and disadvantages together with tips and recommendations on the suited-for-purpose model usage. To facilitate rapid transition of time series theory into actual business applications that students may encounter and profit from in real life, the course is equipped with hands-on code run-throughs provided in python. At the end of the course, prediction will for sure be less difficult.

Course Outline
1. Time Series Introduction
2. Exponential smoothing
3. (S)AR(I)MA(X)
4. (Linear) regression
