Running a DynamoDB-compatible Database with Kubernetes (Partner Event)

This is a partner event. To attend, register at: https://go.scylladb.com/wbn-scylla-dynamodb-kubernetes-registration.html Henrik Johansson and Tzach of ScyllaDB will demonstrate Alternator, Scylla's new DynamoDB-compatible API, which allows you to take your locked-in DynamoDB workloads and run them anywhere: on-premises, on other public clouds like Microsoft Azure or Google Cloud Platform, still on AWS (such as the high-density i3en instances) or as a fully managed DBaaS. Alternator allows you to take advantage of Scylla, a cost effective drop-in open source alternative to DynamoDB. The session will cover: Scylla Alternator: Scylla’s Amazon DynamoDB-compatible API Scylla Operator: Running Scylla Alternator on Kubernetes Demo Alternator - Demo and explain DynamoDB on GKE Speaker bios: Henrik Johansson, Software Engineer, ScyllaDB Henrik is a software engineer working on Scylla management.

Practical Tips and Tricks for Successful Transfer Learning (Partner Event)

This is a partner event with our friends at the Bay Area NLP Meetup For a link to the event: RSVP at https://www.meetup.com/Bay-Area-NLP/events/271843560/ Summary: How do you train a model on small amounts of data on complex tasks such as question answering or medical relation extraction? One area of research that tackles this is transfer learning, which focuses on training models to learn knowledge and skills from other related tasks that will transfer and boost performance on tasks of interest. However, what does transfer learning look like in practice? This talk will go over practical tips and tricks for setting up transfer learning experiments, as well as hard-learned lessons of understanding which tasks will transfer well to others. Bio: Yada Pruksachatkun (https://www.yadapruk.com/) is an incoming Applied Scientist at Amazon Alexa working on fairness and bias in NLU. She recently completed graduate school at NYU, where her research on transfer learning was recently presented at 2020 ACL (https://arxiv.org/abs/2005.00628). Aside from machine learning, she has a deep interest in healthcare, and has worked on a variety of projects using machine learning in healthcare.
