AMA (Ask Me Anything) About Being a Data Scientist for the City of Chicago

NOTE: This is a live "Ask Me Anything" within the Metis Community Slack channel. To join, apply at the link below. http://bit.ly/MetisCommunitySlack Once you're in, join the #general channel and ask away! Tom Schenk Jr. is a researcher and author on applying technology, data, and analytics to make better decisions. He’s currently the director of analytics at KPMG where he leads the smart city and government analytics practice. He’s authored several publications, including a book on data visualization, book chapters on education research, and academic articles on a variety of subjects. Tom has previously served as Chief Data Officer for the City of Chicago, led education research for the State of Iowa, and has held a variety of positions within academia. Tom is the co-founder of the Civic Analytics Network at Harvard University’s Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation. He is also the current co-organizer of the Chicago Data Visualization Group. His work has been featured in The Economist and Wall Street Journal while he’s been featured in television programs on PBS NewsHour and National Geographic Channel. Tom will give his talk "Will you be better off in a “Smart City”?" at the Demystifying Data Science Conference on Wednesday, July 31st at 1:30pm ET. ABSTRACT: Technology and data has begun to be embedded in the fundamental structure and processes of the cities and states in which we live. Smart cities are looking to incorporate data and technology that improve the quality of life for their residents and help governments be more efficient. But what does that mean and how can it be meaningful to you? We’ll explore practical, real-life ways that data science, internet of things (IoT), and open data are being used to help cities become more livable and modern that range from predictive analytics, API feeds of real-time public data, and connected sensors to provide block-by-block insights. More importantly, we’ll discuss how it matters to residents and visitors to the city. ***THE METIS DEMYSTIFYING DATA SCIENCE CONFERENCE IS BACK!*** A FREE, 2-day, Live Online Conference!

Livestream: Coding and Algorithm Interview Practice

Metis Community Slack

This event will be conducted online via Livestream and Slack: https://livestream.com/accounts/23925505/events/8740312 Join our Metis Community Slack channel here: http://bit.ly/MetisCommunitySlack Chicago Tech Interviews is conducting a coding workshop at Metis Chicago and you can join online! They'll share some coding interview problems over the Livestream, break into small groups to work on them (you can work from home and join the conversation in Slack), then present the problems and their solutions via the Livestream! Schedule: 7:15 - 7:30pm Share problems (Livestream) 7:15 - 8:30pm Work problems (Slack) 8:30 - 9:00pm Review Answers (Livestream) Problems they've covered in the past: https://docs.google.com/document/u/1/d/1ZGADw2_Uj9yqAW2ZrsYHyz_gYftRWWYYUsjp5-BGgJI • What they'll do: Work through some interview problems in groups, then present the answers at the end. • What to bring: Bring paper and pencil, laptops are optional but often useful. • Important to know: Be ready to write code. It might not be perfect but to do well on coding interviews, you absolutely need to be comfortable writing code on whiteboards in front of other people. ***THE METIS DEMYSTIFYING DATA SCIENCE CONFERENCE IS BACK!*** Join the world's largest FREE, 2-day, live online data science conference!

Livestream: (:HandsOnSession)-[:TO]->(:QueryGraphs)-[:USING]->(:CypherQueries

This event will be Livestreamed here: https://livestream.com/metis/events/8740244 "There is a difference between knowing the path and walking the path." - Cypher from the movie “The Matrix”. Or, more succinctly, “I want to learn the basics of querying a label property graph database using my own keyboard.” This meetup is going to be a little different from most meetups with part of the session being a hands-on DIY session using the Cypher query language. Traversing graph data is all about understanding how graphs can be structured, and consequently how to write graph queries. This is no different than knowing RDBMS concepts and SQL to query relational data. The session will introduce the label property graph model, followed by learning to write basic Cypher to create and query data in a Neo4j graph database. Attendees will need access to a web browser that can access the meetup space’s, or their own wifi, and be comfortable using a web interface to type Cypher commands (similar to typing SQL queries). BIO: Dan is a Chicago based field engineer & architect with an extensive experience in all things data who is currently working for Neo4j. Dan has worked with clients to envision and successfully implement solutions in the Hadoop, NoSQL, Machine Learning, OLAP, BI, and Massively Parallel Database technology realms. The cumulation of all this experience led Dan to the realization that real value from data is driven by understanding the patterns of connections between data, not just the data as islands of hard-structured connected tables. This epiphany became a reality when he was fortunate enough to work with the innovators of graph database technology by becoming part of the Neo4j family. Dan has a BS in Computer Science from Purdue University, West Lafayette, a MBA from the University of San Francisco, and a MS in Predictive Analytics from Northwestern University. ***THE METIS DEMYSTIFYING DATA SCIENCE CONFERENCE IS BACK!*** Join the world's largest FREE, 2-day, live online data science conference!

Deploying Deep Learning Models as a Web Microservice Using Open Source Tools

Please sign-in at the front door. Items to bring: Laptop Powering your application with deep learning is no walk in the park, but is certainly attainable with some tricks and good practice. Serving a deep learning model on a production system demands the model to be stable, reproducible, capable of isolation and to be behave as a stand-alone package. One possible solution to this is a containerized microservice. Ideally, serving deep learning microservices should be quick and efficient, without having to dive deep into the underlying algorithms and their implementation. Too good to be true? Not anymore! Together, we will demystify the process of developing, training, and deploying deep learning models as a web microservice using Model Asset Exchange, an open source framework developed in Python at the IBM Center for Open Source Data and AI Technologies (CODAIT). We will kick off with an overview of how deep learning models are best published as Docker Images on DockerHub, and are best prepared for deployment in local or cloud environments using Kubernetes or Docker. We highlight the following benefits of such an approach: Standardized REST API implementation and application-friendly output format (JSON) Abstracting out the complex pre and post processing portions of the model inputs and outputs. We will walk you through some super cool applications such as automatic image cropping, age estimation from videos/webcam and Veremin - a video theremin. All these applications and the framework itself are open source and we conclude by inviting contributions and opening the gates for you to be a part of this amazing initiative! ***THE METIS DEMYSTIFYING DATA SCIENCE CONFERENCE IS BACK!*** For the third year in a row, Metis is hosting Demystifying Data Science: A FREE, 2-day, Live Online Conference!
