Louis Dorard will speak about real-world predictive apps with open source and cloud machine learning platforms in a meetup hosted by Paradigma Digital. The capacity of the venue is limited and seats are running low so book now your free access here.


Predictive apps

As we have seen in the recent editions of the Big Data Spain conference, prediction analytics is a topic that is growing in interest and popularity. A few vendors are contributing to the commoditisation of the underlying technology: Amazon, Google and PredicSis joined BigML in offering SaaS solution for predictive analytics to end-users. The number of use cases and the applications that can benefit from the combination of open source, cloud and ML is virtually limitless.

Meetup about Operational Machine Learning

Louis Dorard is author of the book Bootstrapping Machine Learning. He is also well known as the co-founder of, the Predictive APIs conference. Louis will start the presentation by showing the types of predictive features that can be integrated in any app (mobile, desktop, web…) and powered by data and machine learning.

We will then look at what’s at stake when using ML in production and what the steps are to integrate this technology into real-world apps. In particular, we’ll review open source libraries and cloud platforms that make it easier to create and experiment with ML models, but also to deploy them to production.

Finally, Louis will demo how to create a simple predictive model in Python with scikit-learn, how to deploy it as a REST API using Microsoft Azure, and how to use that API.

The meetup is a rare opportunity to meet one of the most active promoters of the benefits of Machine Learning and Predictive Analytics as he stops by Madrid. The session will be recorded and published on Youtube, both on Paradigma‘s and Big Data Spain‘s channels if you cannot make it to our offices in Pozuelo.
