Upcoming events (5+)

The emergence of Blockchain Consortia - RiskBlock, BiTA, MOBI, etc.

I am really excited to have Josh Cartellone speak at our next meetup (https://www.meetup.com/The-Columbus-Blockchain/). He is Digital Innovation Leader from Accenture and Account Lead for BiTA. He is going to share with us how these blockchain consortia are changing the technology and business landscape... There are two types of blockchain consortia: technology-based and industry-based. Technology-based blockchain consortia are focused on platforms, deriving standards, and advancing the technology to handle common pain points (i.e. interoperability, key management, and transaction volume). Industry-based blockchain consortia are focused on business transformation. In this meeting, we will discuss what these consortia are current up to, the path forward, and provide some lessons learned along the way. See you all next week.

Power BI March Madness!

Fusion Alliance

We have another fantastic meeting lined up with both Power BI and Machine Learning covered and even a little bit of IoT to spice things up! Robot IoT and Power BI Speakers: Kishan Wanigasinghe and Patrick Carfrey Learn how we have incorporated Power BI into our IoT (Internet of Things) project. We are building an autonomous vehicle comprised of an Arduino, Raspberry Pi, motors, and various sensors. Using Power BI, we have built a real-time data visualization dashboard to monitor the state of the vehicle. We would also like to share challenges we faced and lessoned learned. Rapidly Operationalizing Machine Learning Models Speaker: John Dages Machine learning is a transformative technology that empowers you to unlock predictive insights from complex data. Data science teams are continually developing new models, but most of these models never see production. In this presentation, we will look at a variety of approaches to rapidly operationalize machine learning models. We will explore the techniques, toolchains, and strategies available from public cloud, open-source, and commercial software. A technical demonstration will also be provided that walks you through the process of releasing a TensorFlow deep learning model to the public cloud provider of your choice. If we have time, we might cover: - For and While Loops in DAX - Previous Value ("Recursion") in DAX - TRANSPOSE and MMULT in DAX And, as always, join us after the meeting for Power Pint!
