Talk 1:
A coding demo "Machine Learning made easy" (Keith Tenzer, Ian Schröder, Red Hat)

Machine Learning does not have to be a pain point for public cloud providers or crazy coders. With a tight framework consisting of an enterprise open source solution and a smart container platform, it can be straightforward and even painless.
Including a demo of "Machine Learning made easy" you will soon see the power of a smart integrated platform. Red Hat delivers a demo showing how to build a framework for Machine Learning of a voice to text solution.

Currently Ian helps Red Hat customers and partners gain more value from data by building bridges with middleware solutions.


Talk 2:
Knative from an Enterprise Perspective (Olaf Meyer, Consol)
Knative is at the time being one of the most hyped frameworks for Kubernetes and OpenShift. In this talk I don't want to focus on the features from a technical point of view but rather have a look at what Knative brings to the table if you are running a cluster in an enterprise environment with different users and projects. At the end of the talk you should have a sound understanding what Knative is doing, what its benefits are, where it extends respectively conflicts with OpenShift and what its drawbacks are.

About the speaker:
Olaf is Senior Consultant at Consol. His focus are in the implementation, improvement and monitoring of cloud infrastructures with base on OpenShift and cloud native applications.
