Last night, we hosted an exciting meetup at Hacker Dojo called “Automate Your Work Flow – wise.io Machine Learning Tools.” The 100+ meetup members are from the Silicon Valley Hands On Programming Events group.
Co-founder and Chief Scientist, Joey Richards gave the intro talk about machine learning and then Jeremy Howard, President/Chief Scientist of Kaggle, presented an excellent overview of Random Forests.
After the presentations, wise.io’s Dan Starr and I demonstrated wise.io’s Machine Learning as a Service (MLaaS) cloud platform, currently in private beta. Meetup attendees were offered a trial beta access to the platform — you can request your own beta invitation here. The wise team spent the remainder of the evening working hands-on with meetup attendees on the platform. There was beer, which made the evening that much more fun…
