"Auto ML vs SQL vs Keras" by Lak Lakshmanan
Machine Learning continues to get democratized -- the tools and libraries are easier to use, and there are a variety of different abstractions now available. Whether you are a developer who does mostly Java, a data analyst who works in SQL, or a data scientist who works in Python/R, you can now solve ML problems at a pretty high-level. I will walk through solving the same text classification problem using Auto ML, using SQL, and using Keras on Google Cloud Platform. Then discuss the tradeoffs of each approach, and how a business might choose between these approaches (i.e., which team would do what).

"Intro to Document Understanding AI(DUAI) " by Bibin Varghese
This talk is an introduction to Document understanding AI, a cloud-native Content Services Platform that uses ML and AI to automatically classify, extract and enrich physical and digital content.

This will be held in building A (room KIR-6THA-1-Black Stars) at Google Kirkland. When you arrive you can park in a guest parking spot by building A or B.
