Talk 1: Predicting Cricket in real time by Francisco Galarza
How to make a 5-day-long cricket match more engaging? Francisco will talk about Monty, an A.I. based algorithm that predicts if a wicket is going to fall soon in a Test Cricket game. (Monty was built in less than 4 weeks in collaboration with Servian, Google and Fox Sports).

Talk 2: Google Cloud Serverless (+ demos)
Google Cloud Functions makes it easy for developers to run and scale code in the cloud and build event-driven serverless applications. Learn the latest updates about Google Cloud Serverless with a few demos!
