TiE NY StartUp Open Mic Night

TiE NY StartUp Open Mic Night

We invite you to TiE New York's monthly Startup Open Mic Night event for an exciting night of networking and pitching! This event is not your typical meet and greet.

This month our featured speaker will be Ramon Ray, a journalist and small business evangelist.

To pitch you don’t have to be a TiE member, you just need to be a startup and/or investor with the passion to give your elevator pitch for 90 seconds in front of a group of angel investors, venture capitalists, startup-focused service based providers, mentors, and a large community of other successful entrepreneurs.

Totally Tidy Tuning Tools
Wednesday 11 December 2019

Totally Tidy Tuning Tools

Many machine learning models have hyperparameters whose values cannot be analytically estimated from the data. For example, the number of neighbors in a nearest-neighbor classification model. The tidymodels collection of R packages are a tidyverse interface to modeling.

In this talk, the new tune package will be introduced. Examples of the tidy interface to model tuning will be demonstrated.

ARTificial intelligence
Friday 13 December 2019

ARTificial intelligence

In October 2018 an AI artwork was sold at Christie’s for $432,500.

When we think about art made by Artificial Intelligence, we imagine a bot thinking and creating art: that is not what is happening. Artists and creators have been pushing the limits experimenting with the use of machine learning. Is AI an emotional entity or data that is trained by human emotions? Is “Ai art” art?

These topics will be discussed by some of the most cutting edge figures in the art world.

If you're interested in hosting your event in our space at Rise New York, get in touch with us for details of availability and cost.
