  • Machine Learning: Hidden in Plain Sight


    Connect. Share. Learn.

    As data professionals we’re aware of the power of well-managed, curated data in the workplace.  We also know that the dramatic growth of computing power has enabled data insights to enter our cities, homes, and - literally - the shirts on our backs.  Little in daily life has been untouched by modern data insights. 
    We cordially invite you to attend our upcoming TDWI Northwest Chapter meeting on February 28, 2019, to hear how machine learning generates data insights for smart healthcare and smart spaces. Come meet other local professionals, build your network, share ideas, and exchange career advice while listening to quality presentations in a vendor-neutral setting, which is the hallmark of TDWI education.
    Attendance, food, and beverages are complimentary.
