Google will host a “bootcamp” on machine learning for Applied Systems engineers next month in the first skills transfer between the two companies.
The broker software provider will send 20 engineers to attend the training session in New York, the first in a planned series following Google acquiring a minority stake in Applied.
Google’s venture capital arm, Capital G, invested a nine figure sum in Applied last week – a long-term investment that will see Google “adding value” to the technology offering of Applied.
“We are looking at areas of Google best practices, like machine learning, and bringing that to the Applied team,” said Jesse Wedler, principal at Capital G.
“We are putting on a machine learning bootcamp for a lot of the Applied team to come in and learn best practices.
“It’s going to be a rolling programme, it’s not a one-time thing. We take a consulting approach, where we brainstorm and collaborate.”
Reid French, CEO of Applied, said the skills transfer was part of the reason the company sought out the investment from Google.
“We take our best and brightest from across the company, send them to New York where they get to code and learn,” he said. “That’s a great thing for our company, and a great thing for the industry.”
