16.00: Mikko Lehtimäki (Softlandia): Welcome and introduction

16.15: Oguzhan Gencoglu (Laconic) : Developing machine learning solutions efficiently - "Do”s and "Don't"s after dozens of projects

We aim for cost-, data- and compute-efficient Machine Learning solutions. In this regard, the efficiency of the development process itself is a clear leverage to these individual efficiency metrics. After developing 10s of ML solutions in various industries, Oguzhan (Ouz) Gencoglu will present various tips for efficient development of efficient solutions.

16.45: Esin Guldogan (Microsoft): AI in mobile imaging.

During the last decade, AI algorithms started to be integrated into mobile devices to achieve intelligent acquisition, processing and decision making, thus leading to the next revolution of mobile vision. In this presentation Esin will summarize the existing solutions and capabilities as well as the future directions.

17.15: Zander Matheson (Bytewax): Leveraging real-time data for ML.

There is a lot of complexity assumed in working with real-time data and to a large extent, this is true, but it also might be necessary for your business to start leveraging real-time data. We will look at the why and how of real-time processing in the context of ML and how you can add stream processing to your ML architecture to achieve near real-time inference.

17.45: Pizza and networking

Venue: Platform 6, Åkerlundinkatu 8, 33100 Tampere

Data infrastructure & productivity meetups are free-of-charge, open events with the following targets:

  • Improve productivy of your data teams
  • Learn how to efficiently and effectively run data science projects
  • Get familiar with state-of-the-art tools and methods around data infrastructure

Working with data is demanding. The idea of the meetups is to focus on topics where we all can learn and improve our productivity to get better results. Whether you are working with customer projects or in-house data teams, you are welcome to join the meetups!


Listen to experiences from other teams about productive methods, share your own lessons learned, see how other teams use different tools & frameworks. Get insight into approaches for data infrastructure in different types of projects and how to effectively get results.

Events are hybrid, there is always an online presentation that you can follow remotely. Demos, networking & snacks are available for people who are able to come on-site.

For whom

Data teams in any enterprise, R&D leaders running development teams, project companies & consultancies offering data science projects.


Teamwork, Productivity, Infrastructure, Data Engineering, Data Science, Machine Learning.


Meetups are organzed in co-operation with Tampere AI Ecosystem, read more at The event is hosted by Softlandia, contact person If you are interested in giving a presentation or a demo, please do not hesitate to contact us.
