Event Details
Experience Oracle’s machine learning and augmented analytics capabilities, which provide the fastest path to turning your raw data into intelligent, actionable insights. The only way that we can rapidly surface the insights we need from mountains of data is to truly put machine learning to work for us.
During this hands-on workshop, you will rapidly create a Pop-Up Data Mart, use Machine Learning to surface insights, analyze with data visualization, and handoff to marketing for campaigns.
Work with the instructor to pull in elements of machine learning built-in to the Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse to analyze a sales and marketing dataset and create new visualizations on them:
• Create Pop-Up Data Mart
• Create Association Rules with Machine Learning
• Create Visualizations on Association Rules

Instructors
• Daniel Lay is a Senior Analytics Consultant for Oracle with 15 years of experience in data technologies and visual effects.
• Aditi Phadke is Solution Engineer for Oracle and is part of the Hub Solution Engineering team that supports the SMB LOB nationwide.
• Wynne Yang is Solution Engineer for Oracle and is part of the Hub Solution Engineering team that supports the SMB LOB nationwide.

8:30 PM Meeting Adjourned

Event Details
We will discuss several items related to privacy in general. We will start with a general background on privacy, its meanings and interpretation in the law over the years. We will then cover no only individual privacy, but new California laws regarding new legislation (AB375) and its implications for consumers, social media companies and other tertiary firms that use data harvested online, including specific person rights to control and restriction of that data. We will conclude with a similar treatment of workplace privacy and the implications for employees and employers, covering also impacts on public sector agencies and local governments, and their handling of constituent data. Discussions are happening in Sacramento on increasing the liability of elected officials who are not addressing privacy and cyber resiliency adequately. .

Parking Instructions for programs at the Knobbe Martens Conference Center


Knobbe Martens
Knobbe Martens

The Knobbe Martens Conference Center is located at:
2040 Main Street, 2nd Floor, Irvine, CA 92614

When you arrive, you'll be issued a parking ticket at a kiosk. Look for the signs for "2040" and park in the designated parking structure or one nearby.

You must bring your parking ticket with you to the meeting. On the way into the 2040 building, inform the first floor ambassador (security guard) that you would like parking validation and are attending the OC ACM Chapter Meeting.

All validations are given via an electronic encoder machine the card you pulled upon entry to the parking structure will be electronically noted with the appropriate validation.

To exit the parking structure, you can turn right or left out of the garage to drive up to the exits.
-If you go right, there will be two lanes both accept validation.
-If you go left, there will be three exit lanes the left and middle accept validation. (The right hand lane is for monthly user only and cannot accept validation.) A good rule-of-thumb is to stay in the left lanes.

Once you pull up to the machine, there are two slots capable of accepting either validations or credit cards, be sure to read directions for inserting validations.

History

Don V Black, PhD, realized in late 2013 that Orange County (OC) was ready for an ACM Chapter, and he decided to found such a Chapter.

Since five current ACM members in good standing were needed to sign a petition to start a Chapter, in September of 2014, he sent an email to his associates to sign the petition. Jeremy Harrington, Jenny Wang, Nilo Niccolai, Lynn Langit, Rebecca Perry, Daniel Whelan, Ken Bell, Keviin Fowler, Brian McCaleb, Dave Close, Lance Elliot, and Roger Whitney responded.

The following members attended the first lunch meetings held at the old University Club at UCI, and volunteered to serve as the first ACM officers in 2014.

  • Founding Chair: Don V Black, PhD
  • Vice Chair: Lance Elliot. PhD
  • Treasurer: Kevin Fowler
  • Secretary: Rebecca Perry, PhD
  • Communications: Jake Liang, PhD
  • Member-At-Large: Arthur Schwarz
  • University Liaison: Nilo Niccolai, PhD
  • Membership: Daniel Whelan, PhD
  • Programs: Dan Davis
  • Webmaster: Ken Bell
  • Mission Statement: Nilo Niccolai, PhD

A business manager at The UCI Institute for Innovation offered Don Black the use of the facility, which was yet to be built. Don took up the offer, and negotiated a free use of the facility for the GameSIG Showcase and ACM of OC. Don Black and others thought that since the demographics of both organizations included UCI students, they met the I4I criteria for free community support, and would increase visibility for the new UCI Institute for Innovation (I4I). They held on awesome GameSIG Showcase, and proceeded to promote ACM-OC bi-monthly presentations at the UCI I4I.

ACM-OC bi-monthly talks were extremely well received by the membership. At the suggestion of the Membership Chair, Daniel Whelan, Don Black followed the example of the San Francisco ACM Chapter, and added ACM-OC as one of his MeetUp groups.

Further details of this can be found at the ACM-OC archived website.
