Description

Series Overview: At this event, we host thought-leaders from the San Francisco data community to discuss the possibilities that data brings to life.

This Month: We'll focus on distributed training framework that closes the gap between machine learning model development and productionization.

What You’ll Take Away: Learn how you can leverage data in your role — no matter the industry. Our expert panel will cover real-world scenarios in which data has driven business success, discuss how data can be a powerful weapon for problem-solving, and share their insights on exciting career opportunities in data.

Why It Matters: According to a Forbes article, “2017 will be the year big data goes mainstream … whether gathering data on the front end or making big decisions in the C-Suite, every single person in your organization must buy into the value [data] analytics brings”.

Data is everywhere, and it affects not only how we run our businesses, but how we live as individuals. Understanding the ways you can leverage data in your personal and professional life can help you find key insights, make smarter decisions, and elevate your career.
