H2O fans, we have a day of data delights in store you for you tomorrow! The first day of H2O World is totally devoted to demos and walkthroughs designed to help YOU get the most out of your data. In fact, we have so many sessions planned that unless you have Hermione’s Time Turner, you won’t be able to attend them all. So choose wisely! A half day hackathon will kickoff at 9 am and last until 12 pm. At the same time the Erdos stage will be hosting an introduction to the H2O platform for you newcomers followed by an explanation of how to install the platform and introductions to data science , R, Python and the Flow UI. A panel on the challenges and pitfalls of data science and a talk on Gradient Method Boosting and Random Forest  will follow before we even get to lunch! Last, but certainly not least, the Ramanujan stage will feature a morning packed with an update on the H2O platform for veteran users and an explanation of how to upgrade the software. This will be followed by an overview of the “top 10 data science pitfalls,” an update on what’s new in R, Python and Flow, and talks on GLM and Python Pipelines.
Time is precious, so even the lunch hour gets used at H2O World! Enjoy your meal while you hear from our very own Chief Architect, Arno Candel. Silicon Valley Data Science’s Chen Huang will kickoff the afternoon at Boole with a talk on how to ask smarter questions to make better business decisions. Boole’s afternoon will be graced by talks on Sparkling Water and building smarter applications. Although the morning’s talks on the Erdos stage will be a tough act to follow, we’ll be making an attempt with a series of awesome talks on Deep Learning , GLM, Ensembles, Sparkling Water and building smart applications, plus a panel on competitive data science! Likewise, the Ramanujan stage will be putting on a strong effort in the afternoon. Ramanujan will feature talks on using H2O with Databricks Cloud, GBM and Random Forest, GLRM, migrating proprietary stacks to open source H2O, Deep Learning and a panel discussion on Smart Applications!

At, democratizing AI isn’t just an idea. It’s a movement. And that means that it requires action. We started out as a group of like minded individuals in the open source community, collectively driven by the idea that there should be freedom around the creation and use of AI. Today we have evolved into a global company built by people from a variety of different backgrounds and skill sets, all driven to be part of something greater than ourselves. Our partnerships now extend beyond the open-source community to include business customers, academia, and non-profit organizations.
