Title: Intel tools and contributions to Machine Learning
Description: George will walk through some of the basic concepts of Machine Learning and how Intel tools can help developers and data scientist to take advantage of the performance for multiple hardware configurations. The presentation will cover Intel tools and contributions to your favorite Machine Learning and Deep Learning frameworks.
Title: Domain Specific Chat-bots and Marketplaces
Description: Chat-bot revolution is going to change how consumers interact with brands, stores, companies and marketplaces online. It is beyond what Siri, Alexa or Cortana have been doing till now, it is a brand new way of interacting with the internet, and entities in it. New opportunities are countless, however, it is vital to be ethical and mindful about disruption of the old ways.
Title: “The Hero with a Thousand Faces: AI, Data Science, and Storytelling”
Description: It is often said that the most important aspect of data science is not the data, but the question asked of the data. Whether an answer lies within any particular data set is something to be determined by the analysis, but once an answer is found, the next most important step in order to drive action is storytelling. In the words of the great Maya Angelou, “people won’t remember what you said, but they will remember how you made them feel.” In this interactive presentation, Nery explores ways in which the ancient drive to tell stories continues to influence modern data science.
