North Star AI, machine intelligence conference for developers is happening for the first time in 2018, March 8th!
The focus of the conference is Machine Learning, AI and Data Science. This includes Scaling Deep Learning, Teamwork, Data Science Shift, Computer Vision, Robotics, NLP, Semi-supervised Learning, Blockchain, Recommendation Algorithm, Data Science Systems, Decentralized Computing.
Full day of technical talks in 2 tracks. Topics are 100% practical with lots of case studies. This is a place to learn, share experiences, discuss challenges and meet like-minded people from all over the world!
Speakers are high-level and hand-picked from US, UK, Finland, Sweden, Ukraine and Estonia.
Kick-ass party hosted by Taxify, hottest Estonian startup right now.
This party includes a fireside chat with ML experts discussing latest technologies in a relaxed atmosphere. Besides that we have the obvious: delicious snacks, fizzy drinks, great music, and lots of tech people.
