Welcome the next two speakers I’m introducing: Jon Oropeza and Amy Cheng!
ML Spends A Year In Burgundy
Jon (@joropeza) is coming to Portland from Portland to speak to us about Cote d’Or in Burgundy! He’s a hacker, grape lover, and Portlander that loves a good smooth wine made out of those grapes he loves!
Jon being a both a weather nerd and a wine nerd, he was curious if machine learning could be applied to vintages in an area where a) quality of wine varies greatly by year b) most of that variance has to do with weather patterns and different aspects of temperature and precipitation c) there are known, reasonably-objective classifications or ‘scores’ of each vintage, such that we could say that such-and-such year with such-and-such weather produced wines of good/bad/mediocre quality.
With that in mind, Jon pulled down a ton of weather data for the Cote d’Or region in Burgundy, France, prepped it, ran a few supervised models over it, chose the one that seemed to work best, and arrived at something that he thinks might be really cool to share with people. I’m betting it’ll be pretty freakin’ rad! With the conference being in late May, he’s even noted we’ll be able to look at some insights into whether 2018 is shaping up to be a good, great, or terrible year! 🙂
I’m super stoked to find out what, and see these two present at ML4ALL! Maybe they’ll even join the bike ride I’ll lead and enjoy a bit of Portland on Sunday before the conference kicks off! To checkout ML4ALL and get your tickets navigate over to ML4ALL here!
