BLOOMINGTON, Ind., September 22, 2020 — While IU is producing strong specialists in Informatics, Data Science, IT, Linguistics, UX/HCI and other disciplines, currently Bloomington has only limited employment opportunities for these specialists at local companies. This results in the drain of the best workforce and slows the development of the City. The proposed technological accelerator seeded around a successful Bloomington company, Megaputer Intelligence (www.megaputer.com) operating in an explosively growing data analytics market, should create new business opportunities and a vibrant eco-system for fostering and keeping the best technology oriented talent within our community.
Megaputer Intelligence and the City of Bloomington are inviting community professionals to attend an introductory meeting aimed at establishing the Data Analytics Accelerator for creating innovative tools and solutions that address important business challenges in different domains through the use of Artificial Intelligence, Natural Language Processing, Computer Vision, and Business Intelligence. Megaputer will support the accelerator with its technological expertise, powerful software platform for quick development of analytic solutions, understanding of business processes of various industries, product ideas, industry connections, and the necessary office space for rent.
The kick-off meeting will have the following agenda:
- Introduction to Megaputer: data analytics market, solutions created for customers in different domains, and promising opportunities for developing cutting-edge analytic products and solutions addressing significant market needs.
- Presenting ideas on how Megaputer can serve as a seed for the Data Analytics Accelerator, in collaboration with IU and the City of Bloomington.
- Brainstorming session: goals, challenges and ideas that IU and the City have for developing Data Analytics accelerator in Bloomington. Aligning these ideas with the available opportunities.
- For the onsite attendees: a brief tour of the Megaputer facility (extra 10 mins).
The meeting will be taking place on Tuesday, September 29th in the main conference room at the Megaputer headquarters located at 1600 W Bloomfield Road, Bloomington, IN 47403 (the building entrance from the upper parking lot). An virtual meeting will be available to join as well. In either case, community professionals are requested to send a registration request to Ruonan Liu (firstname.lastname@example.org). For those attending in person, please bring a mask.
