Israel conference on Big Data, Analytics and Machine Learning

The first Big Data, Analytics and Machine Learning (Israel Innovation) conference was a resounding success. Kudos to the organizers Danny Bickson, Assaf Araki, and Avner Algom. I was happy to help them invite speakers, publicize the event, and give the opening keynote. The conference was sold out and I heard a lot of ethusiastic feedback from the attendees I spoke with. I think next year’s edition will be even better and I can’t wait to take part. A tweet summary can be found below.

SparkBeyondOne side benefit of speaking and attending the conference was I got to meet with a few members of the SparkBeyond team (full disclosure: I’m an advisor), and an update and product walk-through from co-founder Ron Karidi. I really like what they’re doing and I expect many companies will benefit from the tools that they’ll start unveiling in short order.

Conference Tweet recap:

A trip back to the Old City (and Lina’s), a hike up to Masada, and a visit to the Dead Sea rounded up this whirlwind and memorable trip:
