PAPIs Connect: Europe’s First Machine Learning Event for Decision Makers
A few weeks ago we told you about PAPIs’15, the 2nd International Conference on Predictive APIs and Apps, taking place on August 6-7, 2015 in Sydney, Australia. BigML was a proud sponsor of PAPIs’14 and we look forward to meeting the community again in August.
We’ll also have more opportunities to meet with predictive APIs and predictive apps enthusiasts with the new PAPIs Connect series of events. PAPIs Connect complements the annual PAPIs conference by focusing more on business cases and applications with the aim of educating decision makers about the possibilities of machine learning. BigML will be sponsoring the first edition of PAPIs Connect, which will take place on May 21, 2015 in Paris, France.
For the predictive revolution to happen, it is essential to have tools like BigML that lower the barrier to entry for machine learning. Knowing how to use this new technology is not enough, though: we also need to connect it to the domains in which it can have an impact. To do this, it is important to know how to target the right problems that will allow us to create business value from data through machine learning.
PAPIs Connect attendees will gain a business understanding of machine learning and of its importance for their organisations. They will discover what others are doing with predictive technologies, which will likely inspire them to develop their own use cases. Connect is also a great opportunity to meet thought leaders and experts who have used data to deliver an impact on their organizations. Moreover, BigML’s VP of Data Science David Gerster will be showcasing the unique automatic anomaly detection capability that was recently introduced by BigML!
You can see a preliminary version of the program on Lanyrd and can register for the Paris event at the early bird rate until April 17th. In addition, if you have an interesting case study or application built using BigML that you’d like to share with the rest of the world, please let us know and we’ll get you invited to PAPIs Connect in Paris or PAPIs’14 in Sydney!
