We are very excited to announce our next PyData meetup!
For this event, we are greatly honoured to have with us two world class experts, Laurent Picard from Google France and Pantelis Monogioudis, Head of Applied Machine Learning Research at Nokia Bell Labs. A great opportunity, to learn about the latest advances in Modern Machine Learning, AutoML and Self-Driving Cars.
We are grateful to have you both at our event! Thank you!
17:00-17:35 – Laurent Picard, Google Cloud Platform, Technology lover
Title: ML APIs and AutoML techniques = machine learning for all developers
Abstract: Machine learning has seen so much progress lately that we, developers, can now build ML-based solutions without being experts. With pre-trained models, machine learning APIs can analyze or transform our data.
Moreover, AutoML techniques can customize these models, solve more specific problems and provide insights tailored to our own needs. In this session, we'll explore what any developer can do and you’ll be an active player of a live demo. Don't put your smartphone in airplane mode!
Laurent, is a developer passionate about software, hardware, science and anything shaping the future. He works for Google, where he ecstatically explores cloud technologies. In a previous life, he pioneered the ebook industry, co-created the 1st European ebook reader and co-founded Bookeen. He now enjoys, sharing his passion in international conferences.

Title: “What I learned after a year with Udacity’s Self-Driving Car Engineering Program”
Abstract: “Udacity with help from car manufacturers, NVIDIA and other technology partners has created a program, that prepares computer to work in the self-driving car industry. We will go, through the ML/AI technologies and algorithms that power level 2/3 cars and outline the main areas that challenges remain.”
Pantelis, is working for Nokia Bell Labs as the Head of Applied Machine Learning Research based in Murray Hill NJ and Budapest, has received two Bell Labs Presidential awards and works closely with open source communities.
