  • RainSec - PDX Information Security Meetup

    Lucky Lab Brew Pub

    RainSec is an informal group of like-minded security professionals who meet to network and discuss topics of interest in a non-work, non-vendor setting.

    While our target audience is experienced information security professionals, this is a public event open to any interested parties. If you have a friend or colleague who might benefit, please pass an invite along.

    Follow @PDXRainSec on Twitter for last minute updates.

    Because COVID-19 still presents significant risk to some members of our community, we ask that you observe the following and make your own risk assessment decision regarding your attendance:

    • If outdoor seating is available and weather permits, we will be outside.
    • If you are feeling sick, stay home!
    • If you've had a recent COVID exposure, stay home!
    • If you are not vaccinated, stay home!
    • If you are otherwise considered high risk for COVID, please stay home until you feel it is safe to gather in large groups (20-40 people). We don't want to be the cause of anyone's illness or death.

    We miss all of you, and we look forward to seeing you as soon as it is safe for you to attend.

    You can also find us on Meetup.com and Google Groups.

    How Much Data Do We Need

    Synaptiq office

    If there is anything that is universally true in machine learning, it is that more data is always better. That’s why data scientists always respond to the “How much data do you need?” question with “How much data can you get?”

    But sometimes you don’t have much data, because: a) It’s genuinely hard to get; or b) You haven’t been gathering it for very long and it takes time. This is a much more common circumstance than you might think. And you are not alone if you're experiencing this issue. Luckily, and not surprisingly, the machine learning community has come up with numerous approaches for dealing with it. Come sit in on an exclusive conversation with Dr. Tim Oates, professor and practitioner, who will share what appeals to intuition as to why the methods work and provide concrete examples of their application to simple problems.

    We will discuss transfer learning, open source datasets and synthetic data, few shot learning, active learning, and semi-supervised learning. By the end of the evening, you should understand what all of these methods are, when they are applicable, and what kinds of results you can expect from using them.

    Dr. Tim Oates is Chief Data Scientist at Synaptiq and an Oros Family Professor of Computer Science and Technology in the Department of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering at the University of Maryland Baltimore County. He received a Ph.D. degree from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst in 2001 with a focus on Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, and spent a year as a postdoc in the MIT AI Lab. He is an author or co-author of more than 150 peer reviewed papers in AI, ML, and data mining. Dr. Oates served as Chief Scientist for a big data startup in the contact management space, and has consulted in a wide variety of industries, including healthcare, construction, amusement parks, publishing, and social media.

    Landing a Job in the Tech Industry without Years of Experience with Scott Katzelnick

    Scott Katzelnick, Tech Academy graduate, will be joining us to discuss landing a job in the tech industry without years of experience.
