Hi all, I'm super excited to announce the next session of the Future of Data Meetup. This time we'll focus on machine learning, the top of the value chain of the data life cycle. We have two exciting talks, one that focuses on AutomatedML leveraging the power of Apache Spark and the other one on machine learning at the edge leveraging Apache NiFi and the Edge Flow Manager.
Location: A1 Telekom Austria, who will also sponsor pizza and beer
18:15: Doors open.
18:30: Introduction by the organizer.
18:40: Accelerate machine learning with AutomatedML on Azure Databricks (Sanja Jovanovic, Microsoft)
19:20: Centralized machine learning model training & distribution to the edge for low-latency decision making (Andy LoPresto, Cloudera)
20:00: Networking + Pizza
Sanja has been working for Microsoft Austria since 2018. As a Cloud Solution Architect, she has been focusing on data, machine learning and AI related topics. She provides customers across different industries with technical guidance on AI related topics and supports them with hands-on workshops on the Microsoft platform.
Andy LoPresto has been at Cloudera (previously Hortonworks) since 2015, where he currently leads the Data In Motion Engineering Security Team. In this role he serves as both a Committer and Project Management Committee (PMC) Member for Apache NiFi, an open source, robust, secure data routing and delivery system. Andy focuses on security concerns within NiFi including identity management, TLS negotiation, data protection, access control, encryption and hashing, but also contributes across the entirety of the project, including custom processor development, Industrial Internet of Things (IIot) integration, and healthcare & financial use case application. Andy is also involved with the sub-projects -- Apache MiNiFi, which drives edge data collection, including secure command and control and immediate data provenance and governance; and Apache NiFi Registry, which provides complementary applications for flow versioning, development to production lifecycle, asset management, and extension library services. Over the last few years, he has presented about NiFi and MiNiFi in Seoul, Barcelona, Singapore, Tokyo, Melbourne, Berlin, Sydney, Brussels, and the US.
