MapR Technologies Presents: Convergence Vancouver A CATA partnered seminar focused on deploying ML/AI for Digital Transformation

January 25, 2018 * Westin Bayshore *
8:30 am-4:30 pm

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.

MapR Technologies, in partnership with CATA, invite you to join us at Convergence Vancouver for an all-day seminar around the idea of solving data challenges by deploying ML/AI to drive business performance and transformation.  Featured session topics include machine learning logistics and global data fabrics, led by industry luminaries Ted Dunning and Ellen Friedman.  Attendees will take home a complimentary signed copy of their new critically acclaimed book, Machine Learning Logistics: Model Management in the Real World,” and have networking opportunities with industry experts and MapR customers and partners.   

Space is limited so register today and use the code “VIP” at checkout to attend the event FREE of charge.


We look forward to seeing you at the Westin Bayshore!
