we are looking forward to seeing you at our 2nd meetup of 2018! Doors open at 6:50 PM and the talks are going to start at 7:15 PM.
We will have 3 talks.
Speaker 1: Dror Atariah, reBuy GmbH Berlin
Title: Moving from local machine to Dask cluster using Terraform
Abstract: As part of the never-ending effort to improve reBuy and turn it into a market leader, we recently decided to tackle the challenges of our customer services agents. As a first step, a dump of tagged emails was created and the first goal was set: build a POC that tags the emails automatically. To that end, NLP had to be used and a lengthy (and greedy) grid search had to be executed. So lengthy, that 4 cores of a notebook were working for couple of hours with no results. This was the point when I decided to explore dask and its sibling distributed. In this tutorial/post we shall discuss how to take a local code doing grid search using Scikit-Learn to a cluster of AWS (EC2) nodes.

Speaker 2: Jeremy Tuloup
Title: p5.js in the Jupyter Notebook for custom interactive visualizations
Abstract: The Jupyter Notebook is a wonderful tool for interactive and exploratory computing. The Python ecosystem already comes with popular libraries for charting and visualizations, like Bokeh and Plotly.
However in some situations we need access to a lower level API such as the HTML canvas to draw custom shapes (triangles, circles, squares) for a specific problem.

Speaker 3: Rudradeb Mitra
Title: Predicting your next customer using Neural network
Abstract: It is not only the sectors of retail and e-commerce but any company is going to hugely benefit if machines can predict who will be the next customers of their product or services.
In this short talk the speaker will explain how neural networks can be used to predict next customer using classification, LSTM and reinforcement learning.
