H2O fans, we know that distance and the twin holidays of Veteran’s Day and Diwali kept many of you from attending the grand finale of H2O World, but we want to at least give you a taste of all that went on at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View. Day 3 of H2O World got off to a strong start with a massive panel on creating a culture of data-driven decision making. The panel included experts from H2O.ai and AT&T.

The morning continued with talks from GoPro and H2O.ai Board Member Michael Marks, Conor Jensen, Analytics Program Director at Zurich North America, and a very informative session on GLRM from Madeleine Udell! Before heading over to our delicious food trucks, H2O World attendees also had the opportunity to hear several keynotes. The first was an explanation of what the next generation of data products would look like from non other than data science expert Hilary Mason!

Hilary’s talk was followed by keynotes from Kaiser Permanente Vice President, Jason P Jones, who spoke about how machine learning can help with clinical decision making, and from Stanford Professor Rob Tibshirani, who spoke about using the lasso method for high dimensional supervised learning. Attendees who weren’t immediately distracted by the onset of the lunch hour had a chance to get their books signed by Hilary and Rob.

Lest you think that all the fun happened in the morning, we want to assure you that the afternoon was jam-packed as well! We hosted three panels on algorithm design and application gotchas, machine learning in financial services and machine learning in natural language processing, respectively. We also had a series of terrific talks from fellow H2O fans just like yourselves at Transamerica Corporation, Progressive, Macy’s, Nielsen Catalina Solutions, Lexalytics, Sociogramics, Altiscale, MarketShare, Machine Zone, Data Fellas, Epoch and Trendkite.
