From November 6 - 9, 2018 we held our 3rd KNIME Fall Summit in the US and, like last year, we were in Austin, Texas. Over 200 people joined us and it was great seeing so many new faces amongst the regular Summit attendees - thank you to everyone who joined us!
Michael Berthold opened the Summit by reflecting on another year of significant growth - including the half a dozen new KNIMErs who have joined the US team in 2018. He also took a moment to thank the KNIME community for their ongoing contributions which helped us keep our position as a leader in analyst reports. Lastly, he discussed new and growing trends in Data Science, as well as in Automated ML/AI and put them into context with our Guided Analytics vision. Check out his presentation here.
Thursday and Friday were full of engaging presentations from data scientists, business analysts, and independent users across different industries such as Marketing, HR, Sales, Manufacturing, Life Sciences, Cybersecurity, and more. They highlighted the diverse application areas of KNIME Software - from text mining, guided analytics, and disease tagging, to anomaly detection, image analysis, bots, and more. We also looked into what’s new and what’s cooking at KNIME. Thank you once again to our speakers for all these great presentations! You can check out their slides here.
Based on feedback from last year, we extended the Summit by offering KNIME Courses on Tuesday as well as Wednesday. There were courses in KNIME Analytics Platform (for beginner and advanced users), Text Mining, and Big Data, as well IoT Analytics, and Advanced Analytics. Dean Abbott was also there delivering his course on “The Power of Random”.
It was great hosting everyone in Austin and we are now looking forward to the KNIME Spring Summit from March 18 - 22, 2019, in Berlin, Germany. A 30% early bird discount is available for those who want to secure their spot early.
