When it comes to learn about Machine Learning APIs from experts, webinars are a great place to start. However, there’s nothing like in-person workshops. Today, BigML is announcing three exceptional workshops on Predictive Applications taking place in Spain in May. I will have the honour to speak at these workshops alongside Francisco and jao, who are the CEO and CTO of BigML. Here are the three dates:

  • Bellaterra (Barcelona): May 7 at 12pm, IIIA (Artificial Intelligence Research Institute) at the Campus of the Universitat Autonòma de Barcelona.
  • Madrid: May 8 at 5pm, Wayra/Telefonica.
  • Valencia: May 13 at 4pm, Universitat Politècnica de València.

Some more details

The aim of these workshops is to give you a quick and practical view of why and how to embrace predictive applications.

I will start with an introduction to Machine Learning, its possibilities, its limitations, and I will provide some advice on how to apply Machine Learning to your domain. I have the privilege of being the one to introduce BigML, but I will also review some other Prediction APIs. Then, Francisco will provide an introduction to BigML’s REST API. Finally, jao’s part will be the most hands-on as he will show step-by-step how to build a predictive application in 30 minutes.

We’re also thrilled to be joined in Madrid by Enrique Dans, who authors one of the most read technology blogs in Spanish and who also blogs in English, and by Richard Benjamins, who is Group Director BI & Big Data Internal Exploitation at Telefonica.  In Valencia, we’ll be hosted by Professor Vicent Botti who leads the Artificial Intelligence Group at the Universitat Politècnica de València.

I am happy to announce to the readers of the BigML blog that these workshops will coincide with the launch of my new book on Prediction APIs, on May 7. I will cover some of its content in my talks, but not only! You can already get a flavour of what’s coming by downloading the first chapters and the table of contents for free.

Don’t forget to send an email to to request an invite and don’t hesitate to say hi if you’re coming! I can be found on Twitter: @louisdorard. See you soon in Spain!
