You go to a lot of trainings and/or meetups, whether free or not, expensive or cheap, ALL of those are either marketing fluff, sales pitches, or short of global pictures, or short of details, no insight, let alone foresight. Our 2-day Boot Camp is radically different, vendor agnostic, no strings attached, full of meat, lots of hands-on, offering you both macro & micro perspective of the state-of-the-art in practical way with hindsight, insight and foresight!

What you'll learn, and how you can apply it

  • Learn how Machine & Deep Learning AI Big Data Container enables data scientists to help companies reduce costs, increase profits, improve products, retain customers, and identify new opportunities
  • Topics include:
    • How to identify potential business use cases in leveraging big data container AI technology
    • How to obtain, clean, and combine disparate data sources to create a data pipeline for data lake
    • What Machine-Learning (Shallow Learning) & Deep Learning technique to use for a particular data science project
    • How to conduct PoC & productionalized big data projects in cloud/container cluster at scale
    • How to create real-time data pipelines using the latest open source with public cloud or private cloud/container, ingest data in real time and at scale, process the data in real-time/interactive/batch, and build data products from real-time data sources
    • How to combines ETL, batch analytics, real-time stream analysis with machine learning, deep learning, and visualizations through both data pipeline & data lakes
    • Understand & master TensorFlow's fundamentals & capabilities
    • Explore TensorBoard to debug and optimize your own Neural Network Architectures, train, test, validate & serve your models for real-life Deep Learning applications at Scale
