Tech on Tap: Environmental Intelligence Takeover

March 27 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Tech on Tap

Join your favorite tech community at RBTC’s next Tech on Tap. Starting this year, RBTC is giving this series a twist by bringing a barstool speaker element to the beloved series that connects tech researchers, enthusiasts and innovators of all ages and stages at a post-workday social.  The series will start and end with networking and each event will stage a speaker to share a project, business or passion with just a mic on a barstool. This unscripted series has two rules: The speaker should stay under 15 minutes and must have a tech-focused talk.

Ben Strong PhD, Science and Machine Learning Lead for Earth Genome, will hit this month’s stage and share how he’s building novel technologies that combines satellite data, machine learning and human-centered design to guide and measure actionable environmental intelligence.

Street parking available as well as three small lots behind the event space. Look for event signage in parking lots.
