About this event

Join us in San Francisco on Tuesday, October 20 at 6:30 PM PST for an evening of networking with Big Data professionals and an engaging presentation about Uses Cases for AI.

In his presentation, The Outlook for AI, Mr. Nicholson will discuss how deep learning is rapidly changing the AI landscape. Companies like Google, Microsoft, Amazon and Facebook are in fierce competition for teams that can build deep-learning applications. Because of deep learning's general usefulness in pattern recognition, those applications are surprisingly diverse, ranging from image recognition to machine translation. This talk will explore deep learning use cases for the major data types -- image, sound, text and time series -- as they're emerging in the private sector.

Agenda: 6:30- 7:00pm Networking (Food & Drinks provided) 7:00- 8:00pm Presentation 8:00- 8:30pm Networking and Additional Q&A with Speaker
