Over the next few months, we will be speaking at a number of industry events. Here’s a snapshot of where we’ll be. We hope you can join us.

Global Big Data Conference, Santa Clara (May 4)

Speaker: Babak Hodjat, Co-Founder & Chief Scientist
Abstract : The Amazing Power of Massively Distributed Evolutionary Algorithms – This talk will address how evolutionary algorithms will reshape the big data market. This innovative technology will enable organizations to extract higher value out of the data they are already collecting and make intelligent, bias-free decisions with that data. An evolutionary algorithm (EA) applies principles of biological evolution to problem solving. The use cases are almost endless, addressing everything from medical research, energy exploration, crop forecasting and much more. Evolutionary algorithms have been limited by computational complexity, but what if we could scale computing to run on millions of nodes to power EAs, turning big data into smart decision-making through massively distributed scalable deep learning? The Age of Possible has never been closer to our fingertips. Sentient is collaborating with the world’s leading academic institutions to test and expand the use of EAs to continually advance the science and application of evolutionary computation and Distributed AI.
