  • Nebraska Phase People Archaeological Exhibit Opening
    2:00 pm-4:00 pm
    2018-08-04

    Join us to unveil an archaeological exhibition that has not been seen at the Forest since these artifacts were unearthed here nearly 100 years ago. There will be brief remarks, light food, and the opportunity to see this exhibition first!

    Fishhooks, knives, and pottery shards were clues to the first archaeologists working to unlock the mystery of these early inhabitants. These artifacts were uncovered by Robert Gilder, who conducted the first comprehensive excavations in the early 1900s.

    Gilder’s early career was as a printer for several Omaha newspapers but after his retirement in 1919 he devoted his full attention to painting and archaeology. His findings were published in journals from Harvard to Yale. He later served as chief archaeologist of the University of Nebraska Museum.

    Learn more about Robert Gilder and the Nebraska Phase people at our gallery opening, and look for more lectures and programs about this exhibition at fontenelleforest.org.

    Register for this event here, so we know how much food to have available. Free for members, daily admission for nonmembers.

  • Drag and Drop Machine Learning
    8:30 am-4:30 pm
    2018-08-14

    Workshop Overview

    AIM Infotec in conjunction with AIM Interface Web School is proud to provide instructor Gordon Summers, machine learning expert from Contemporary Analysis.

    Drag and Drop Machine Learning is a one-day, instructor-led training to teach machine learning using tools on the market that leverage drag and drop interfaces instead of code-based machine learning.

    The workshop will cover:

    This course will use one of those tools, Dataiku, in order to learn about the core concepts of machine learning. While there will be some specific Dataiku training around navigation, the goal of the training is to teach setting up a model, executing machine learning, and analyzing the results.

    The class will be interactive with opportunities to build what is being demonstrated. Participants are expected to provide their own equipment and be able to install the software. The Dataiku version they will use is the “community” version with no cost to use.

    Fee: The course can be purchased as a stand-alone training for $700 per person. Prices increase $100 after July 17.

They are open to everyone (21 and older) and take place in casual settings like pubs and coffeehouses. Each meeting is organized around an interesting topic of conversation. A scientist gives a brief presentation followed by a Q-and-A period.

    Pizza will be provided for the first 50 people by the Nebraska Coalition for Lifesaving Cures.
