*This will be a virtual meetup. Register here: https://bit.ly/36bTqhJ to secure your attendance.

Traditional supply chain models have been severely impacted by COVID-19 resulting in technical code debt for a lot of businesses. As uncertainty builds up, it becomes incredibly important to retrain models from the get-go for adjusting sales forecasts and do what-if scenarios.

Join us for our virtual meetup where Karthik Guruswamy, Sr. Principal Solutions Architect at H2O.ai, will review the latest developments in H2O.ai's machine learning platform. With Driverless AI, data scientists can leave the heavy-lifting to automated machine learning/feature engineering and use of advanced algorithms, backtesting, etc., while focussing strategically on what additional data they need to bring in for augmentation and how to redeploy the models (if not already).

Karthik will also showcase H2O Q, our new and innovative AI platform to make AI apps that delivers instantaneous insights for the "in the moment" business questions.

In this interactive workshop, you will learn the basics of working with the Pandas Data Frame structure, including how to clean and process your data so you're ready to make some predictions.

UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE, THIS MEETING WILL BE HELD ONLINE WITH DISCORD: https://discord.gg/wmFHB7y

Open to anyone in the area who is interested in developing video games. In order to have a little structure, we'll try to do a couple things each week:

Introduce new members. What have you worked on, game related or not? What do you want to work on next?

Discuss this week's conversation starter. Some article, video or game that we can dig into a little.

Members can present any games they're working on, for feedback or just to brag.

Of course, it's all very informal. The main goal is interesting conversation(s) about our passion.

Looking forward to it!

*This will be a virtual meetup. Register here: https://bit.ly/36bTqhJ to secure your attendance.

Traditional supply chain models have been severely impacted by COVID-19 resulting in technical code debt for a lot of businesses. As uncertainty builds up, it becomes incredibly important to retrain models from the get-go for adjusting sales forecasts and do what-if scenarios.

Join us for our virtual meetup where Karthik Guruswamy, Sr. Principal Solutions Architect at H2O.ai, will review the latest developments in H2O.ai's machine learning platform. With Driverless AI, data scientists can leave the heavy-lifting to automated machine learning/feature engineering and use of advanced algorithms, backtesting, etc., while focussing strategically on what additional data they need to bring in for augmentation and how to redeploy the models (if not already).

Karthik will also showcase H2O Q, our new and innovative AI platform to make AI apps that delivers instantaneous insights for the "in the moment" business questions.
