BigML - Machine learning made easy


Hi <<Full Name>>,


Not a day goes by without an important figure from the technology world acknowledging the immense potential of large-scale machine learning applications in virtually every industry. Recently, Vinod Khosla was added to this list as he observed, "In the next 20 years, machine learning will have more impact than mobile has".

Since you are (by definition) a machine learning innovator positioned perfectly to ride this new wave of change, we would like to inform you about a unique event: the International Conference on Predictive APIs and Apps. This event will be taking place in Sydney on 6 & 7 August 2015. This year's edition will be the 1st time ever leaders from Amazon Machine Learning, BigML, Google Prediction API and Microsoft Azure ML come to the same stage!

PAPIs ’15: 2nd International Conference on Predictive APIs and Apps


  • Keynotes by Danny Lange, General Manager at Amazon ML, and Bob Williamson, Leader of the ML group at NICTA.
  • Tutorials to learn how to use Machine Learning in the real world with various tools and APIs (including BigML!).
  • An introduction to multi-GPU Deep Learning by Mike Wang of NVIDIA.
  • A new research track with a behind-the-scenes look at Azure ML, a presentation of the first predictive API standardization efforts, and a talk by Poul Petersen, Chief Infrastructure Officer at BigML, on the Past, Present and Future of Predictive APIs.
  • A panel discussion on research challenges facing predictive APIs, moderated by Mark Reid of NICTA.
  • An array of curated 5-minute lightning talks on predictive use cases and lessons learnt.

If you have a machine learning project of your own, you may gain additional exposure for it by taking advantage of the lightning talks by sending the organizers a 400 word pitch of your lightning talk before Sunday, 2 August at midnight (Sydney time). While at it, be sure to submit a short form in order to be considered for the ticket giveaway.

As the original sponsor of PAPIs, BigML will also have a solid presence at PAPIs 2015 and we would love to meet with you in person at this year’s event.
