Event Details

Once available only to scientists, today machine learning (ML) is open to a much broader audience of software architects and engineers. In fact, the practice of ML is so advanced that some algorithm results look like "black magic,” even to experienced practitioners.

Join us in D.C. at the National Union Building for our latest meet-up, “Machine Learning Design, Demystified” for free food, beer, and discussion on machine learning architecture.

Inspired by attribute-driven design (ADD) and Smart Decisions (a software architecture design game for big data), our speakers are excited to share a new version of the game focused on designing ML systems.

In this interactive session, you will learn about designing the architecture for ML systems via series of gamified interactive exercises. We will simulate state-of-the-art ML design systems by analyzing both business and technical requirements, selecting the best matching algorithms, and teaching how to validate early design decisions using rapid prototyping techniques.

Attendees are encouraged to think of an ML use case and bring it for discussion.

Don’t forget to register to secure your spot! Each attendee must be registered using their own name and contact info to attend this event. No on-site registrations will be permitted.
