Join and RSVP!

AWS Speaker

Guy Ernest, business development manager for machine learning services in AWS

“No Dr., or How I Learned to Stop Debugging and Love the Robot” In this talk, Guy will dicuss what developers must know to explore the power of machine learning services in the cloud. Using data to build machine learning models is a powerful alternative for heuristic or handwritten rules. This power is not limited to people with Ph.D. or MSc. in machine learning, statistics or computer science, but can be used successfully by competent developers. You will learn how to get started and how to think in machine learning terms when developing your next smart application.

Bring your laptop! Guy will walk you through simple steps for creating a numeric regression machine learning model using Amazon Machine Learning.

To gain background on machine learning in the cloud before the meetup, consider reading Guy’s blog posts on machine learning.

“Birds of a Feather” Discussions

After Guy’s discussion, we’ll break into groups to discuss topics of interest.
