Wingify DevFest 2018

Last year, we had the first version of the Wingify DevFest with the aim of bringing developers under one-roof, where they could contribute by giving talks, workshops or by simply attending the event.

The theme for the second DevFest is Data Science and Engineering. Gather together for a day full of talks and activities related Data Science. With new innovations in Data Science/Machine Learning every day, more people across Industry and Academia need to utilise the power of Data. We have a compelling list of speakers to speak on the theme. Keeping with the spirit of the DevFest, we also have several engaging activites scattered throughout the day. You'll realize that data can be beautiful, where Rasagy Sharma will explain how to display your data in the best way possible. Expect to rack your brains too while solving the Data Science competition on Kaggle.

"Distributed System In Deep Learning Machine"

Nirant Kasliwal

Lead Maintainer for Github's Official NLP Resource

One of the pressing challenges in machine learning have always been lack of "right" data in the large volumes. We look at recent NLP Progress which allows us to work with laptop-scale compute, with small data and get amazing performance, rivalled only by Google-scale compute.

"NLP for Indic Languages"
