Kx will give a presentation on AI, Streaming Analytics and the world's fastest time series database.

Kx are the founders of kdb+ (the world's fastest time series database) and the q query coding language. Traditionally they have worked mainly with Wall Street financial institutions (19 of the world's top 20 tier one banks use kdb+) but in recent years have begun branching out into data processing for other industries like retail, utilities, manufacturing, pharmaceuticals and space.

Kx also runs the Kx Tech Fund, a £10 million fund for ambitious start-ups which could benefit from their technology, mentoring and capital at any stage of funding from seed onwards and is always looking for applicants. (link:

Kx was founded in 1993 by Arthur Whitney and Janet Lustgarten to address a simple problem: the inability of traditional relational database technology to keep up with escalating volumes of data. This problem is even more acute today, as data records already number in the trillions and are escalating exponentially. Businesses however, need immediate access to real-time and historical data for a whole range of applications. From research through trading, smart meter data analysis, web site analytics, customer behaviours and a plethora of other applications, all need a high-velocity analytics platform.

Since the company's inception, Kx's singular goal has been to provide its customers with the fastest, most efficient, and most flexible tools for processing real-time and historical data. This focus has enabled us to become the worldwide leader in high-volume, high-performance databases.

Kansas City Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence Group is an educational and development cooperative focused on helping grow the Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence footprint in Kansas City. 

 KCMLAIG is sponsored in part by The Sprint Accelerator, a hub for corporate innovation and entrepreneurial engagement, and by DataCamp the first and foremost leader in Data Science Education, offering skill-based training, pioneering technical innovation, and courses from the world's best educators.
