The first Microsoft Machine Learning & Data Science Summit concluded earlier this week in Atlanta. Speakers at the Summit included thought leaders, engineers and practitioners from Microsoft and our customers and partners. The Summit featured the very latest in the areas of big data, machine learning and artificial intelligence, and covered a swathe of techniques including several popular Open Source technologies. The Summit gave participants a chance to connect in person with peer engineers, data scientists, ML practitioners, managers and decision makers, and to share tips and tricks. Participants were able to connect with speakers at a specially organized “Meet the Speakers” forum, where they even got answers to questions concerning their specific challenges or work projects.
All sessions from the Summit were recorded and are now available from Channel 9, including Summit keynotes by Joseph Sirosh and Dr. Edward Tufte. You can access them by clicking this link or on the image below:
For conference attendees who may have missed a session or two that you were interested in, or for all other visitors to our blog who were unable to make it to the event in Atlanta, we hope these videos give you an opportunity to catch up on the latest advances in this field. As you will see, these sessions span the whole gamut of technologies, such as R, Hadoop, Spark, intelligent databases, data lakes, cognitive services, bots and more. Microsoft takes several of these cloud services and packages them into the Cortana Intelligence Suite, giving organizations of all sizes everything they need in one place for all their big data and analytics projects.
So go ahead and learn about cutting-edge customer use cases from the real world, get inspired by what data-driven solutions can enable, and get architectural guidance and practical tips that can help you accelerate the development and adoption of your solutions.
