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

Abstract:
In this course, we will explore one of the core concepts in unsupervised learning, autoencoders, and introduce semi-supervised learning. We will also introduce deep unsupervised learning and explore one of the hottest areas of unsupervised learning today: generative modeling using GANs (short for generative adversarial networks). We will conclude with a demonstration of text and image-based GANs in action.

Bootcamp Warm-Up: Data Literacy

Speaker: Sheamus McGovern, Software Engineer & AI Expert

Founder of ODSC and Software Architect specializing in, complex multi-platform systems across multiple industries including finance, healthcare, and education.

Abstract: As AI becomes more prevalent in the industry, it's creating new job opportunities and replacing traditional ones. Data scientist, AI Engineer, Data Engineer, and Machine Learning Engineer are just a few of the new roles. However, those in more traditional jobs, such as data analysts, business analysts, developers, engineers, product development roles, HR, and more are beginning to see AI used more frequently in their job roles. Whether you are looking to upskill or reskill in AI, this first session in a three-part series is a must-attend.
In this 90 minute tutorial, you will discover how to use data to take advantage of trends.
You will learn how data experts predict and forecast possible outcomes, find hidden patterns, and identify opportunities for new products and services. Topics include:

Data Sources

Data Types

Structured Data

Analyzing Data

How to Argue with Data

Predictive Analytics

Data Fluency: From A/B Testing to What-if-Analysis

Becoming a Data Expert: Getting Started

Data Life Cycle

Transforming Data

Unstructured Data

The Data Journey

Descriptive Analytics

We will wrap up the tutorial with a deep dive into our Data Literacy Glossary so you can understand the key terminology when communicating with data experts.

Sava is an AI Research Engineer at Lucidworks, whose main focus is researching, developing and integrating cutting-edge NLP algorithms. As a part of the Data Science team, he has been working closely on question answering systems, chatbots and neural search engines as well as on enriching search results with additional information like sentiment, topics, extracted named entities etc. He's also actively participating in a variety of Machine Learning competitions on Kaggle and other platforms, where he was able to achieve winning places by applying state-of-the-art Deep Learning techniques

Speaker #2: Elizabeth Edmiston, Senior Engineer at Lucidworks
Elizabeth Edmiston has been a Senior Engineer at Lucidworks for the past three years. Prior to joining Lucidworks Elizabeth managed multiple big data projects. She has had almost thirty years of experience as developer, consultant, architect, manager, and educator and continues to pursue her love of data and solving problems. Elizabeth earned her Ph.D. in Computer Science from Duke University.

Abstract:
Vector similarity search is powerful. It can extract valuable insights from complex information and make relevant recommendations from abstract inputs. But to be useful, it has to be fast. Whether suggesting products or surfacing valuable information, results often need to be served instantaneously.
How can you ensure similarity search is speedy, even when querying massive million, billion, or even trillion vector datasets? We've partnered with Lucidworks, an enterprise search technology company, to explain how the company used Milvus to build semantic search at speed. Join our webinar and discover how Milvus, an open-source vector database, makes it possible for Lucidworks to search an entire vector space in milliseconds.
What you will learn:

Learn how Milvus helps power Lucidworks semantic search.
Learn more about Lucidworks application and use of Milvus to Index and Query within applications.
Learn how scale testing was run using the Milvus FLAT and HNSW indexes with demonstrated results.
Q & A will be available after the presentation
