Machine Learning Summer School in São Paulo
Machine Learning Summer School & AI Startuo Battle in São Paulo
Machine Learning is making its presence felt on the worldwide stage as a major driver of digital business success. Our recently completed second edition of the Valencian Summer School in Machine Learning was further testament to this momentum with over 140 attendees representing 53 companies and 21 academic organizations from 19 countries, having traveled to Valencia for a crash course on the topic. Encouraged by the level of interest and motivated by our mission to democratize Machine Learning, we are offering a new Machine Learning Summer School in São Paulo, Brazil, on December 8 and 9.
Machine Learning Summers School in Valencia, 2nd edition
BigML will be holding a two-day hands-on Summer School, perfect for business leaders and advanced undergraduates, as well as graduate students and industry practitioners, who are interested in boosting their productivity by applying Machine Learning techniques. All lectures will take place at the VIVO Auditorium from 8:30 AM to 6:00 PM BRST during December 8 and 9. The BigML Team will guide you through the curriculum starting with basic concepts and techniques, and proceeding to more advanced topics on day 2.

On Friday, December 9, we will also present the Artificial Intelligence Startup Battle, where the jury is a Machine Learning algorithm that predicts the probability of success of early stage startups with no human intervention.

If your startup applies Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning as a core component of your offering, we invite you to compete in the battle! Submit your application and if you are selected, you’ll be able to pitch on stage, make connections at the Summer School, and get unique exposure among a highly distinguished audience. 

The winner of the battle will be invited to Telefónica Open Future_'s acceleration initiatives to enjoy the access to the Wayra Academy (up to six months) and to Wayra services and contacts, such as training, coaching, a global network of talent, as well as the opportunity to reach many Telefónica enterprises, in Brazil and abroad. After six months the winner company will be evaluated and may apply to run for a full Wayra acceleration process, including up to US $50,000 convertible note loan (versus a possible 7 to 10% equity).

The Brazilian Summer School in Machine Learning is FREE but by invitation only. The application deadline is Friday, December 2, by 9:00 PM BRST. Applications will be processed on a first come, first served basis, and invitations will be granted right after individual confirmations to allow for travel plans. Register soon, space is limited!
