August 12, 2020 - Webinar
10:00am ET

Join us as we continue this webinar series specifically designed for the community by the community with the goal to share knowledge, spark innovation, and further build and link the relationships within our HPCC Systems community.

Featured topics and speakers include three of our 2020 HPCC Systems summer interns.

Nathan Halliday, Hills Road Sixth Form College, Cambridge, UK, presenting on his project, "The Parallel Workflow Engine," an upgraded feature to the HPCC Systems Workflow Engine to make query run times shorter and will also allow queries performing several related tasks to run concurrently, which will be of particular interest to ECL developers. 

Nearly all ECL queries pass through the workflow engine. The workflow engine executes items (sections of the query) sequentially, but there are many situations where it could be beneficial to process items in parallel. This talk explores the changes that need to be made to the workflow engine, to give an improvement in the running time of each workunit.

Jefferson "Jeff" Mao, Lambert High School, Suwanee, GA, will speak about how to establish HPCC Systems on the Google Cloud Platform, covering the steps required to use HPCC Systems on the Google Cloud platform and how he designed a web application for creating a new HPCC Systems cluster on this cloud service.

Jack Fields, American Heritage School, Delray Beach, FL, will share his project findings on using the HPCC Systems Generalized Neural Network (GNN) Bundle with TensorFlow to train a model to find known faces leveraging the Robotics API.
