H2O World Second Day Wrap-Up

H2O fans, we didn’t think that our second day could top our first, but somehow it did! Still, although we had record attendance, we know that a lot of you aren’t here. While we can’t hope to get across all that’s happened, we do want to share some of the highlights. The morning started off with CEO Sri Ambati welcoming attendees and giving them a special sneak peek at the future roadmap of H2O.

Before even getting to lunch attendees were treated to a fascinating talk from world-renowned data science expert Monica Rogati, use case demonstrations from PayPal, Comcast, and Quora, and an explanation of Consensus Lasso from the man Sri calls “the Bob Dylan of data science,” Stanford Professor Stephen Boyd. H2O World attendees not completely entranced by our wonderful collection of food trucks got some one-on-one time to ask Monica Rogati questions during a special “fireside chat.”

At H2O.ai we’re focused on achieving impact, and nothing impacts people as much as their health. That’s why we were so proud to be a part of Kaiser Permanente Health Data Project Lead Taposh Dutta Roy’s afternoon talk on using data science to help battle cancer. The afternoon also featured talks from H2O users at PayPal, Capital One, AT&T, Google Analytics, GenomeDx and 6sense. A series of panels on industrial data science, the future of data science and the last mile of data science delivery were part of the afternoon’s agenda as well.

Of course, no event is complete without a party, and H2O World is no different! After a full day of listening to the world’s leading data science practitioners talk about their work, attendees were bussed over to another world at the Mos Eisley Cantina. Fortunately, none of our open source Jedi fell prey to the vile machinations of the Sith, but it was a close call!
