It's a polyglot developer world
  • Mark Fussell

Applications built using microservice architecture offer compelling benefits, however building them is hard and comes at a cost of having to understanding distributed systems. Developers should focus on business logic and instead they end up solving the same problems such as state management, resilient calls and event handling with limited portability across public clouds.
The Distributed Application Runtime, Dapr (https://dapr.io/), is an open source project that gives super powers to all developers to build cloud native applications, no matter what developer framework or language they decide to use. In this session we will dive into what Dapr is an how you can use this in your applications no matter what your favorite development language or framework is.

Insbesondere bei industriellen Herstellungsprozessen in den Bereichen Automatisierungstechnik und Qualitätssicherung werden derzeit Systeme zur maschinellen Bilderkennung eingesetzt. Kristina hat nach ihrem Biochemie- und Bioinformatikstudium in Linz kürzlich ihr Doktoratsstudium am Institut für Machine Learning zum Thema Deep Learning in Drug Discovery erfolgreich abgeschlossen. In ihrer Dissertation hat sie sich mit Problemen im Deep Learning auseinandergesetzt, wie zum Beispiel der Integration von mehreren Datenquellen, die Interpretierbarkeit von Netzen und die Bewertung von Generativen Modellen. Durch die von Kristina durchgeführten Verbesserungen konnte der komplizierte Prozess von Drug Discovery erleichtert werden, da die trainierten Netze bessere Vorhersagen lieferten und neue Erkenntnisse und Einblicke ermöglichten. Diese Ergebnisse wurden mit Forschungsgruppen aus Cambridge und der Industrie erarbeitet und auch in Fachjournalen publiziert. Neben einer Vielzahl von Deep Learning Ansätzen setzte sich Kristina in ihrer Zeit am Institut auch mit anderen Machine Learning Algorithmen wie Random Forests, Gradient Boosting Machines und Support Vector Machines auseinander.

    Paulo Dias

    "As a Cloud Solutions Specialist, I provide advise and architecture guidance on building strategies for companies willing to embrace cloud platforms, or go through digital transformation proceses. I'm a creative and dynamic person who tries to keep an open mind and think outside the box, always trying to figure out new ways to do things and willing to check on the new stuff out there, no matter where it comes from. I also love to share the knowledge and learn from other people. I've been working with technology for more than 22 years, and so far it's been a fun ride to make a living out of my dream profession. During all this time I had the opportunity to work with several different technologies, from open-source to ""proprietary"", from small to large deployments and customers. My passion for technology dates a long way back, from when I was a kid. I can't actually state the exact moment when it all started, because I remember it for as long as I remember me. I'm a fan of vintage computing, and I still keep some models from the 80's that remind me of those early days with technology. On a more personal note, I speak Portuguese, Spanish and English fluently, I love music, sports (especially if there are wheels or boards involved, and also a fan of the NFL), and sailing boats. "
