Worum es bei uns geht

We are a group of startup engineers, research scientists, computational linguists, mathematicians, philosophers, and others interested in understanding the meaning of text, reasoning, and human intent through technology. We want to apply our understanding to building new businesses and improving overall human experience in the modern connected world. The MIND Stack explained: mind.wtf.

This is a technical AI meetup: we build systems with Machine Learning on top of Data Pipelines, and concern ourselves with the stuff we can try in open source, learn, improve, and model human behavior in industry for practical results.

The advisory board for this meetup is Cicero Institute (Cicero.ai), and its conferences are AI.vision and self.driving.cars. We like specific technical problems (self-driving cars) and the way they inform better higher-level inference of the future of AI (AI.vision).

Register at https://swift.tf!] First Impressions of Swift from a Scala veteran

Benötigt einen Veranstaltungsort

Please register at https://swift.tf! This is a joint meetup with Swift for TensorFlow. If you RSVP here you'll be waitlisted and nothing else will happen! We need a downtown SF location for this meetup providing food and beer for developers! Eugene Burmako was a student of Martin Odersky, the creator of Scala at EPFL, and the creator of Macro Paradise. After that he was a team lead at Twitter, developing Reasonable Scala (rsc). Recently Eugene joined Google where he works with Chris Lattner, the creator of Swift, on Swift for TensorFlow. As a compiler specialist who worked on developer effectiveness, Eugene has unique insights into the ecosystems of both languages. While his first impressions are still fresh, Eugene will share his impressions of Swift with us.

[External Registration][Conference] Scale By the Bay 2019, November 13-15

Benötigt einen Veranstaltungsort

This year Scale By the Bay (https://scale.bythebay.io) runs for only two days. But we packed an incredible 70 sessions in these two days! We start with a hot breakfast and excellent coffee. Coffee never ends -- continuous uninterruptible supply of great coffee is a hallmark of every conference By the Bay. Each morning there is a keynote where we all gather as a community, and a panel closing each conference day where we all get together again before the happy hour -- also every day. The heart of the conference are its iconic four tracks: Thoughtful Software Engineering, Service Architectures, End-to-end Data Pipelines up to ML/AI, which we historically call Functional, Reactive, and Data. That's three right? The fourth is the hallway track -- and we're legendary for it! The core theme this year is Distributed Systems. Joe Beda, Principal Engineer at VMware and the co-creator of Kubernetes, keynotes one day, and Heather Miller, Professor at CMU and former Director of the Scala Center, keynotes the other. We have multiple talks considering cloud deployments on Kubernetes in concert with other systems, such as Kafka, Spark, and Flink. We cover important new directions with Unison, and inherent issues such as Change Data Capture from Disney Streaming. We will learn about the new GIS features for Google BigQuery from their author, about the Databricks Data Lake approach, and infrastructure as code at Target. Our "reactive" track started as reactive microservice architectures but came to encompass all kinds of systems, as well as data manipulation techniques. We'll see how Lyft is enabling real-time queries with Apache Kafka, Flink and Druid. We'll hear about the lessons learned developing and running Netty from its creator. We see how Serverless is developed at Google. Machine Learning and AI are only as scalable as the data pipeline feeding them. Moreover, you need to ensure your data is typesafe and your predictions are based on the data whose integrity or even privacy is provable. This year, we have three talks on Swift for TensorFlow, including from the original Google team developing it, as well as Coinbase and Quarkworks. We hear from Sony Entertainment on near real-time, low latency predictions, and many many other leaders. And we'll uphold the rigorous and thoughtful software engineering that is underpinning of every system scalable in time and tech space -- a system that can deliver but also grow with companies and their people. We'll hear from Comcast and Netflix on human-centric software engineering and ML organizations. We'll hear about community-first Open-Source approaches. We'll see how F# invigorates .Net ecosystem with functional approach, including JavaScript apps, and how Scala with React is doing the same for the full-stack development on the JVM. We'll hear about Rust, Haskell, Scala, Java, Python, F# and other ecosystems used for quality development and production deployment. We'll see how the sausage is made at JetBrains to power our IDEs. We'll dig deeper into GraalVM with Oracle and Twitter, as well as Scala Native. We pioneered GraphQL at Scale By the Bay three years ago when almost nobody heard about it. Furthermore, our focus was not on the frontend alone but on middleware usage of GraphQL. This year Nick Schrock, a co-creator of GraphQL, joins us. The day before the conference, we run a bespoke, all-day, hands-on training that we build specifically for SBTB. This year, it's Portable Serverless Workshop with Ryan Knight and James Ward. James is now at GCP and has a driver seat going to the serverless future. You'll go home with a complete serverless backend under your belt! All in all, we'll have a lot of fun, pack a year of learning in just two or free days, and again experience the magic that makes Scale By the Bay a legend! Reserve your Early Bird seat soon at https://scale.bythebay.io.

Deep Learning Book Reading Group
Benötigt Datum and Zeit

Benötigt einen Veranstaltungsort

Note: the limits of Deep Learning will be examined by the AI industry leaders at http://ai.vision conference, San Francisco, March 8. Early Bird ends 12/31. This is a biweekly reading group for the book by Goodfellow, Bengio and Courville (https://www.amazon.com/Deep-Learning-Adaptive-Computation-Machine/dp/0262035618). We'll meet in 2017 and go through it in sequence. We need a fixed venue to host us -- please email Alexy at [masked] if you want to be the home of the brave AI. We'll need reading group leaders for this to happen, please email Alexy if you want to lead certain chapters or the whole sequence.
