Workshops and Events

Our live training courses give engineers the tools to start using machine learning in their projects. We also provide a series of advanced training courses for machine learning practitioners to hone their skills and learn new techniques. Contact us to learn more and book an event for your organization.

New York
Intro to RNNs, LSTMs, and GRUs
Tuesday November 6, 2018 from 8am to 4pm
Bloomberg LP at 120 Park Avenue, NYC
Join us for a hands-on training on Machine Learning with Python, Scikit-Learn and Tensorflow sponsored by Bloomberg Beta.

This a course to take engineers from zero to one in RNNs, LSTMs & GRUs in a day. The world needs more people that understand machine learning and our goal is to get you started on that path as efficiently as possible. While there are plenty of online resources, we know it's tough to learn a technical or topic without a teacher. This workshop will arm you with the tools to get started using machine learning in your day job and the resources to find additional help if you want to go deeper.
Machine Learning Hackathon
Tuesday November 6, 2018 from 6pm to 9pm
Bloomberg LP at 120 Park Avenue, NYC
Join us for a machine learning hackathon where engineers test their skills and work collaboratively to create the best solution, sponsored by Bloomberg Beta and Figure Eight.

Machine learning is changing the world and it’s not going to stop. Leading companies like Google, Amazon, and Facebook are betting their futures on AI. Organizations of all kinds can’t hire machine learning engineers fast enough.The world needs more people that understand machine learning and our goal is to create a collaborative environment where engineers are testing their skills while learning and growing. While there are plenty of online contests, we know it’s more fun to work together on a concrete machine learning task and it's a great way to get better at doing machine learning.We will work together on an interesting image classification task that’s relevant to many applications.

We will introduce the problem and a few common strategies such as data generation and augmentation. At the end, we will compare approaches and students will work in teams to build the best possible model. Prizes will be awarded to the winning groups.

London
A Technical Intro to Deep Learning
Friday November 16, 2018 from 9am to 5pm
Bloomberg LP at 3 Queen Victoria Street, London
Join us for a hands-on training on Machine Learning with Python, Scikit-Learn and Tensorflow. The training will be led by Chris Van Pelt, founder of Weights & Biases and Figure Eight (Formerly CrowdFlower).

The course is designed to leave you with the ability to take training data, do feature selection and actually build models for applications. We do two standard use cases: sentiment analysis, and image recognition but the concepts are applicable to all use cases.By the end of the day, you will be able to use models in their day-to-day work. You will also walk away with a high-level understanding of the most useful machine learning models such SVMs, Logistic Regression and Naive Bayes work and when to use them. Special attention is given to Deep Learning and in particular Convolutional Neural Networks for vision. We try to keep the class collaborative and fun.
