ODSC Europe 2018 (Open Data Science Conference)

Video Description

ODSC Europe 2018

Royalties for this video set help fund the ODSC Grant Award for open source data science projects.

The Open Data Science Conference has established itself as the leading conference in the field of applied data science. Each ODSC event offers a unique opportunity to learn directly from the core contributors, experts, academics and renowned instructors helping shape the field of data science and artificial intelligence

Presentations cover not only data science modeling but also the languages and tools needed to deploy these models in the real world such as TensorFlow, MXNet, scikit-learn, Kubernetes, and many more.

Our conferences are organized around focus areas to ensure our attendees are at the forefront of this fast emerging field and current with the latest data science languages, tools, and models. You’ll find in our East 2018 video catalog some of our most popular focus areas including:

Deep Learning and Machine Learning

Over the last 5 years, we have seen incredible advances in the field of data science thanks to breakthroughs in neural networks, transfer learning, reinforcement learning, and generative adversarial networks (GANs) to name a few. With the advent of Google Voice, Alexa, and other voice assistants, presentations on enabling technologies like NLP, RNNs, and LSTM are popular. Some session to note:
