Google Cloud meets Machine Learning

August 24, 2017 @ 6:00 pm

It’s fair to say that Google Developers experts are always one step ahead us! They are the brains always thinking ahead, striving to solve some of the most pressing problems in emerging markets by offering innovative solutions we didn’t even know we needed. Very much like the Google Cloud Platform that has revolutionised business infrastructure, scalability and data analytics across the globe.

Nonetheless, these same experts have realised that the best ideas are not always generated out of a Google office…some of the best ideas can come from anyone – anywhere.

After all, Nairobi is a budding ecosystem of software engineers in both Infrastructure and cloud who are keenly working its building tools and systems that support data scientists and their teams that are looking at how they can deploy their work to the cloud.

So, it makes absolute sense that Google Developers Experts would invite the Cloud, ML and AI community to a meet up and networking event that explores the Cloud and Machine Learning infrastructure and the solutions it provides business today.

Google Cloud Meetup


The session will ultimately bring together great minds eager in exploring the endless possibilities of collaboration and synergy. The Panel Discussion that is lined up is fantastic and we are so excited to welcome James Mwai, Kenneth Kinyanjui, Muthoni Wanyoike and Kathleen Siminyu  into the space.

James and Kenneth will introduce the Google Cloud platform, and shed some light on its big data products; Muthoni and Kathleen will then take us through the endless possibilities in Machine Learning. When you are looking at revolutionising tools and systems that can empower business today- this is where you need to start.
