Lunch + Learn

Lunch + Learn: The Road to AI is Paved with Pragmatic Intentions

In this lunch and learn, hosted by Veracity Solutions, you will learn how Spark can help your business build a pragmatic technology roadmap to AI (Artificial Intelligence), Machine Learning, and Big Data analytics. Apache Spark is a wonderful platform for distributed data processing and analytics, but how is it used by different organizations? How difficult is it to on-board a team, what technology do they need to master before on-boarding, do they have to master Scala or simply use their Java skills? You will find answers to those questions, get a realistic perspective on the platform, and see code (because we are all a bit geeks, right?)
