Dear Meetup Members:

I’m excited to announce the event “Deep Learning in Action” #2, on Wednesday,[masked]!

Many thanks in advance to the ACM Munich chapter around David Dao, which already did an awesome job preparing this event.

Big thanks to TNG Technology Consulting ( and TrustYou ( for sponsoring our event already for the second time!

Big thanks for NVIDIA ( for sponsoring and organizing the beverages for this event!

And big thanks to STYLIGHT ( for hosting us in their beautiful office.

The event will take place at

We advise to hurry up saving your seat, as we limit the event to 100 participants.

The schedule so far:

1. Dr. Moritz Helmstaedter Director, Max Planck Institute for Brain Research

Connectomics - The dense reconstruction of neural networks

Born 1978 in Berlin, Germany. 1998 onwards studies of medicine and physics at Ruprecht-Karls-University Heidelberg, Germany (Medical license and Diploma in physics). Brief interlude as strategy consultant with McKinsey. Doctoral thesis with Bert Sakmann and Post-Doc with Winfried Denk at the Max Planck Institute for Medical Research in Heidelberg. [masked] Research Group leader and Principal Investigator at the Max Planck Institute of Neurobiology, Munich.
