Just the RSVP at this meetup page will not guarantee your seat.

Data Science Milan has established a partnership with Kx Systems, a UK company developing kdb+: one of the fastest and performant database in the world. The partnership aims at connecting digital startups involved with Big Data technologies or with a future potential to scale to large volumes of data. 

Kx Systems is able to provide resources and operational expertise for product innovation and development to startups and at the same time access to its funding network.

The event will start with one of the brightest engineers of Kx, Kyle Corcoran.
Kyle will be explaining how Kx supports streaming analytics on extremely large data sets that would simply swamp traditional technologies. The talk is a perfect opportunity for members to learn about the power and scalability of Kx and how it can be applied to real-life business problems across a range of traditional industries from finance to manufacturing and the evolving challenges of IoT and everywhere connectedness.

The event will continue with a pool of startups that might be interested in this technology and willing to pitch their ideas, product or service. No business models. The major areas of interest are: analytics, machine learning, cyber security, AI, blockchain, robotics, nanotechnology, life sciences, neurology and more…
