H2O Driverless AI is's flagship platform for automatic machine learning. It fully automates the data science workflow including some of the most challenging tasks in applied data science such as feature engineering, model tuning, model optimization, and model deployment. Driverless AI turns Kaggle Grandmaster recipes into a full functioning platform that delivers "an expert data scientist in a box" from training to deployment. Driverless AI empowers data scientists to work on projects faster using automation and state-of-the-art computing power from GPUs to accomplish tasks in minutes that used to take months.

We're excited to have recently added the ability for users, partners and customers to extend the platform with Bring-Your-Own-Recipe. Domain experts and advanced data scientists can now write their own recipes and seamlessly extend Driverless AI with their favorite tools from the rich ecosystem of open-source data science and machine learning libraries.


The talk will cover the following:
- who we are and what we do
- Product Suite
- Introduction to Driverless AI - our automatic machine learning platform for the enterprise
- Driverless AI Use Cases and success stories.

Key takeaways for the audience, you will learn:
