Spotlight on Cloud

Google invites you to join us on 15 May as we discuss what is on the horizon for the Cloud industry.

During this event, you will connect with like-minded professionals to explore how Cloud technologies accelerate innovation and enable growth as well as gain insight into Big Data and Machine Learning possibilities and their practical applications.

  • Discuss current issues and trends in the industry with your peers through round table discussions.
  • Deep dive into a hands-on Machine Learning lab.
  • Connect and network with women in the industry.
