How to transform your business with Artificial Intelligence - Dataconomy


Ajit Jaokar is a leading expert working at the intersection of Data Science, IoT, AI, Machine Learning, Big Data, Mobile, and Smart Cities. He teaches IoT and Data Science at Oxford and also is a director of Smart Cities Lab in Madrid. Ajit's work involves applying machine learning techniques to complex problems in the IoT and Telecoms domains. You can follow him on twitter @AjitJaokar and his blogs at Future Text. We are beyond thrilled to announce that Ajit will not only be speaking at our Big Data, Berlin meetup February 17, but he will also be at the head of the second workshop of our'Dataconomy Presents' series.

Data Science foundation for Programmers – One day workshop in London, Miami and New York


Data Science foundation for Programmers is a one day course that introduces Programmers to developing Data Science applications. The hands-on course uses the R Programming language to introduce machine learning algorithms. The program includes a one day workshop followed by a one week online session to complete the Programming Exercises. In this section, we understand the characteristics of the data which help us later in choosing an algorithm.

PatternEx Hosting Artificial Intelligence Workshop for CISOs at Black Hat


The workshop will be led by two AI security experts with years in the field, and will demystify Artificial Intelligence before exploring its application in cyber defense. Dr. Kalyan Veeramachaneni is currently a research scientist at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL), and has been conducting research in the field for years. He will be joined by Dr. Ignacio Arnaldo, the Chief Data Scientist at PatternEx and former researcher at MIT CSAIL. Together they will facilitate an interactive, vendor agnostic discussion which will provide a foundation for understanding emerging artificial intelligence solutions in InfoSec. "During the time that we have been talking with security leaders from around the world we have found a strong interest in the potential of AI in InfoSec, but there is too much jargon and marketing speak out there," comments Travis Reed, CMO for PatternEx.
