About this event

Join the hosts Kyle, Danny, and Madusha on Between the Brackets, where we uncover all sorts of topics such as Android, Google Cloud, Firebase, Web, Machine Learning, and much more!

This month's episode we invite Kalev Leetaru, founder of the GDELT Project to chat about how they use Google Cloud's AI APIs and analytic tools (like BigQuery) to catalog and understand the world in real time!
