This Sunday is the NYC triathlon--otherwise known as the event that will dictate the fate of trash talking between me and ScriptEd founder Maurya Couvares for the next year. You see, I'm fundraising for this fantastic program that teaches high school kids, mostly from underrepresented groups in tech, the basics of coding. In the two triathlons we've been in together, I've beaten her both times by just a few minutes. This year, she has a coach, and has been training unbelievably hard.
I, on the other hand, joined the board of Ample Hills--the best ice cream shop in the world, so I'm at a distinct disadvantage this time around.
Please consider supporting us in our competition and, in turn, get some great kids the necessary skills to compete in the job market.
This Wednesday, John Carreyrou, Pulitzer Prize winner and primary author of the WSJ's articles on blood-testing company Theranos Inc., will be interviewed by WSJ Pro Venture Capital Editor Nick Elliott about Carreyrou's award-winning articles, the transparency of startup technologies, what this means for those companies and the role of the media in covering Silicon Valley. Plus, venture capitalists Jeremy Levine, partner at Bessemer Venture Partners, and Kathleen Utecht, managing partner at Core Innovation Capital, will sit down with reporter Yuliya Chernova to discuss potential causes and implications of a recent wave of compliance, legal and other problems at high-profile startups.
Getting everyone on the same page is vital for the success of any agile effort. Systematic, visual representations – maps of the user experience -- help align team towards a common goal. You’re probably already familiar with mapping techniques already out there: journey maps, experience map, user story mapping and more. But how do we apply these techniques in remote teams? The shared understanding that visualizations offer seems to get lost when interacting through Slack, skype and the like. For sure, better tools can help remote collaboration, but ultimately distributed UX design requires a new set of skills. Jim will first outline a general framework for mapping experiences, highlighting the collaborative nature of the activity. Then he'll examine how agile and creative work can be done effectively with distributed teams. Presenters: Jim Kalbach is a noted author, speaker, and instructor in user experience design, information architecture, and strategy. He is currently Head of Customer Success and Education at MURAL, an online whiteboard solution.
This talk will cover a broad range of topics from how successful computer vision systems are built using neural networks, why there is an explosion in real world application powered by these systems, to how Clarifai makes it easy for you to build a new generation of intelligent applications. We will take a look at a visualization technique introduced by Matthew Zeiler during his PhD at NYU with Rob Fergus which allows you to understand what each layer of the neural networks have learned in order to predict concept in images. Then, multiple applications enabled by this technology will be demonstrated, including a free photo organization product by Clarifai called Forevery. Matthew Zeiler received a PhD from NYU in machine learning and image recognition with the pioneers of deep learning and convolutional neural networks. His research produced the top 5 results in the 2013 ImageNet classification competition.

On July 26th we will have Jim Kalbach join us to discuss insights from his latest book 'Mapping Experiences'. Visualizations are a key tool that help organizations organize and make sense of customer insight. Once completed, diagrams such as service blueprints and experience maps help change the company perspective from inside-out to outside-in. But our job goes beyond mapmaking. To gain broader team alignment, we also have to be facilitators, communicators, and ultimately strategic players within organizations. In this talk, I’ll show how you can use diagrams effectively in your organizations to make the information actionable.
