About this event

2015 was an incredible year in machine learning. Not only did the research in the field progress, but the business landscape changed dramatically. Uber joined the race to self-driving cars, IBM invested billions into progressing its Watson department, and there were enough mergers and acquisitions to make anybody's head spin.

In all that though one can't help but wonder how accurately the press has been describing things. In any high-tech environment the press is likely to dramatically exaggerate events and portray things in a very colored light depending on the article...

Did google really open-source all of their machine learning tech? Is cognitive computing a fancy word for SkyNet? Is the OpenAI foundation planning to take over the world? In this session we'll go through a few of the major press events of 2015 and separate fact from fiction.
