Databricks recently held a webinar on how they worked with Virgin Hyperloop One engineers.

They discuss the goals, implementation, and outcome of moving from Pandas code to Koalas code and using MLflow. Lots of code, notebooks, demos, etc.

Come hear Patryk Oleniuk, Software Engineer at Virgin Hyperloop (VHO) discuss how VHO has dramatically reduced processing time by 95%, while changing less than 1% of previously single-threaded, pandas-based python code. Attendees of this webinar will learn:

How VHO leverages public and private transportation data to optimize Hyperloop designHow to ‘Sparkify’ (scale) your pandas code by using ‘Koalas’ with minimal code changesHow to use ‘Koalas’ and MLflow for sweeping machine learning models and experiment resultsFeatured SpeakersPatryk Oleniuk, Lead Data Engineer, Virgin Hyperloop OneYifan Cao, Senior Product Manager, Databricks

Microsoft for Startups shares this highlight reel from the Spring MLADS conference.

In case you’re not familiar with MLADS, check out Data Driven’s coverage of the most recent one.

Twice a year, Microsoft assembles over 4,000 of our top data scientists and engineers for a two day internal conference to explore the state of the art around machine learning and data science.

Earlier this year, 30 leading startups who are active in the Microsoft for Startups program came to showcase their solutions and engage directly with the engineering teams.

TensorFlow 2.0 is all about ease of use, and there has never been a better time to get started.

In this talk, learn about model-building styles for beginners and experts, including the Sequential, Functional, and Subclassing APIs.

We will share complete, end-to-end code examples in each style, covering topics from “Hello World” all the way up to advanced examples. At the end, we will point you to educational resources you can use to learn more.

O’Reilly and TensorFlow teamed up to present the first TensorFlow World last week.

It brought together the growing TensorFlow community to learn from each other and explore new ideas, techniques, and approaches in deep and machine learning.

Presenters in the keynote:

  • Jeff Dean, Google
  • Megan Kacholia, Google
  • Frederick Reiss, IBM
  • Theodore Summe, Twitter
