Event description


We are pleased to announce the Edinburgh event in Amazon's Academic Engagement Program in Machine Learning. This will be a three day event to bring together scientists working at Amazon and academic leaders in the field. Our goal is to foster stronger links between Amazon's scientists and the academic communities from which many of us came.

The event will run over three days with distinct themes. Day one will be a day of talks and posters from academics, with opportunity for faculty, students and post-docs to present their work and discuss important topics in machine learning research. Day two will be a day of talks and discussions from scientists at Amazon, where we'll give an overview of how machine learning drives the customer experience across a range of different areas and the unique challenges and opportunities we face operating at Amazon's scale. The final day will be hosted in collaboration with AWS: here, we'll focus on hands-on use of Amazon services to accelerate machine learning research, particularly in the areas of Deep Learning (on-demand GPU machines) and processing large datasets with Spark. You should leave with practical experience using these tools on an example problem and a sense of how on-demand cloud computing can simplify and expand your research.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Please register your interest by 20th February in attending the above. Further details regarding times, locations and ticket availability will be advised in the near future.
