Pune Ruby Users Group “Open Source Friday” meetup

  • Date: Fri, 4 Jul 5:30pm – 8:30pm
  • Location: Josh Software, Sunflower Commercial, Baner Road

Gautam Rege writes:

For the past few months, we have been having a lot of fun on Friday evening – we don’t work! We hack on some open-source gems, work on some internal ideas (gems, rails projects and techniques) and we found it to be very useful (and fun).

We decided that this could be a good idea for the community – so every Friday @ 5.30pm, anyone interested in Ruby and any Ruby related technologies is more than welcome to over.

Have an Idea?

If you have an idea and want to get the Ruby community to build it, you’re welcome here – you can propose your idea and if there is a quorum, we can work on it.

Love coding?

Come on over and code with others. Bring your own laptop and share your knowledge with others

What do you need to bring?

Yourself and your laptop if you want to code. We shall provide snacks and soft-drinks at our office.

Beer Sponsors…

Beer sponsors – always welcome! Contact gautam@joshsoftware.com if you want to show your appreciation.

The Fifth Elephant run-up event in Pune: Applications of Machine Learning

  • Date: Sat, 5 Jul 10:45am – 4:15pm
  • Location: Thoughtworks Technologies (New Office), 6th Floor, Binarius Building, Yerwada

HasGeek has arranged a day-long set of talks on the Applications of Machine Learning on 5th July, in Pune.

Here are the details:

Grouping similar messages using Topic modeling

In machine learning and natural language processing, a topic model is a type of statistical model for discovering abstract “topics” that occur in a collection of documents. At Helpshift, we get a lot of customer support messages. We use topic modelling and more specifically the Latent Dirichlet Allocation (LDA), to classify similar message automatically based on messages. These grouped messages can be processed by the CS personnel making them more efficient.
This talk will cover Helpshift’s experience and the challenges in using LDA for grouping similar messages without any prior knowledge.

Speaker – Vinayak Hegde

Vinayak Hegde is VP of Engineering at Helpshift. In the past, he has worked at Inmobi, Akamai and Microsoft.

The Cookie as a Customer: An E-commerce Perspective

In the brick and mortar days, the shopkeeper interacted with a live human customer with appearance, expressions and behavioural traits. These attributes influenced the way the shopkeeper pitched his goods. Flip to the current e-commerce world where you are interacting with a cookie which was dropped when a customer visited your website. How does an e-commerce store know the appearance, expressions and behavioural traits of a customer? Based on those characteristics, how does the sales pitch change? Where do these conversations happen?
In this session, Rahul Kulkarni demonstrates with real-world examples how big data from cookies translates into appearance, expressions and behavioural traits of the customer, and most importantly how these are used to make a killer sales pitch for the customer.

Application of Machine Learning for Financial Markets prediction

This session covers case studies which use some of the classical as well as cutting-edge machine learning algorithms. Due to ill-conditioning and noisy nature of financial data, there are some unique characteristics of this problem that we will focus on. Robustness of modelling methodology, averaging of models, identifying what is true improvement in prediction accuracy versus over-fitting become some of the serious issues people will need look into.

  • Date: Thu, 10 Jul 8:30am – 10:30am

TiE Pune Breakfast session – on How start-ups can partner with SAP to transform their customer’s business & achieve breakthrough growth

Building inhouse entails long development cycles, and often the market has moved by the time the product is ready. By partnering with SAP, such companies can not only speed up their Go to market, but also leverage SAP’s brand and leading technologies in Big Data, Mobility, Analytics & Cloud to enter markets and rapidly build transformational solutions for their customers. This session will share some examples of the work SAP’s partners are doing with customers – large & small – across the world, and offer new routes to market for partnering with SAP.
