Below is a link to the Yahoo! Careers article about the event held at the Wozniak Lounge last Tuesday (4/23). Ram Sriharsha, Advertising and Data Platforms engineer at Yahoo!, gave a talk on why their partnership with AMPLab works and delivered their donation of 24 cluster servers to EECS instruction, as part of their Y! STAR program.
As stated in the article: “Yahoo!’s current focus on Cloud Computing, Machine learning and Crowdsourcing, tie very closely to the founding principles of the AMPLab at UC Berkeley, which makes them a fantastic partner.”
