Data By the Bay is the first Data Grid conference matrix with 6 vertical application areas spanned by multiple horizontal data pipelines, platforms, and algorithms. We are unifying data science and data engineering, showing what really works to run businesses at scale.
AlphaGo crushing humans, Tay making them blush -- finally, everybody thinks singularity is near. Is it? This panel will weight what actual technical grounds are there to claim advantage over humans or other AI in certain fields. Where does open-source data science and engineering adds the most impact, and how should modern state of the art AI be implemented in a startup that needs it to win? Coe and join the discussion!
Sri is co-founder and ceo of H2O (@h2oai), the builders of H2O. H2O democratizes bigdata science and makes hadoop do math for better predictions. Before H2O, Sri spent time scaling R over bigdata with researchers at Purdue and Stanford. Prior to that Sri co-founded Platfora and was the Director of Engineering at DataStax. Before that Sri was Partner & Performance engineer at java multi-core startup, Azul Systems, tinkering with the... Read More →
