What we're about

With the rapid growth of Artificial Intelligence comes rising demand for AI engineers. Ubiquitous, AI-driven software that utilizes deep learning and machine learning models to enable conversational AI, autonomous machines, machine vision, and other AI technologies, requires serious engineering. These projects of the future promise to be some of the most exciting jobs in software engineering today.

An AI Engineer works at the intersection of engineering and data science. At ODSC, build on your coding skills to engineer the next generation of artificial intelligence-enabled software. From leading experts, you will learn everything from data wrangling, modeling, and workflow to essential deep learning and machine learning frameworks.

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

Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport

We are excited to invite you to join together with your fellow Data Scientists on October, 30th at ODSC Conference Meetup. Schedule: 6:15 pm - 6:45 pm - Networking 6:45 pm - 7:30 pm - Session 1 + Q&A 7:30 pm - 8:15 pm - Session 2 + Q&A Agenda: Session 1 - 35 mins + 10 min Q&A Speaker: Dr. Anju Kambadur, Head of AI Engineering at Bloomberg https://www.linkedin.com/in/anju-kambadur-48aa78162/ Bio: Dr. Prabhanjan (Anju) Kambadur heads the AI Engineering group at Bloomberg. Anju leads a group of 100+ researchers and engineers who build solutions for Bloomberg clients in the areas of machine learning, natural language processing (NLP) and natural language understanding, information extraction, knowledge graphs, question answering, and table understanding. Previously, Anju was a research staff member in the Business Analytics and Mathematical Sciences Department at IBM Research’s Thomas J. Watson Research Center, where he worked on problems in machine learning, such as matrix sketching, genome-wide association studies, temporal causal modeling, and high-performance computing. He received his Ph.D. from Indiana University. Anju has published peer-reviewed articles in the fields of high-performance computing, machine learning, and natural language processing. Session 2 - 35 mins + 10 min Q&A Speaker: Sanjana Ramprasad, Machine Learning Engineer at Mya Systems https://www.linkedin.com/in/sanjana-ramprasad/ Bio: Sanjana started off with leveraging machine learning algorithms for political data where she worked on drawing inferences from expenditures data for the presidential election cycle. She received her Masters in Computer Science with a specialization in Artificial Intelligence and spent a year working on her thesis for learning to identify writers based on handwriting using neural networks. Sanjana now works on Conversational AI, researching and developing NLP techniques for Mya Systems. Having worked on the applications of machine/deep learning on political and forensic data, she intends to identify and work on unique problems that can be solved using deep learning/machine learning.
