Convergence Vancouver


CONVERGENCE VANCOUVER: A full-day seminar focused on deploying ML & AI for digital transformation.

Did you know that 90% of an organization’s success with machine learning and artificial intelligence has more to do with logistics than it does mathematical brilliance? As a result, the solutions added to handle machine learning frameworks often only make the problems more profound.

Join MapR Technologies in the discussion on the value of exploiting data assets via machine learning and artificial intelligence to drive business performance and transformation.

MapR Convergence offers attendees opportunities to network and interact with industry experts, MapR customers and partners. Register TODAY to be part of the discussion as we explore how the infrastructure of a converged data platform directly affects a company’s machine learning and artificial intelligence capabilities.

We look forward to seeing you in Vancouver!
