A Gentle Introduction to Deep Learning for Developers

Buffer Stage

About the event

Like flying cars, the promise of artificial general intelligence (AGI) has been elusive for years. We are a long ways out from machines that can perform intellectual tasks equivalent to that of a human. Deep learning, a subset of machine learning, is a technology available today which enables developers to add narrow artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities to their applications including image or audio classification, facial recognition, object recognition, image caption generation, and natural language processing. We'll explore how developers can integrate pre-trained open source deep learning models into their applications and how developers and data scientists can collaborate on the development, training, and deployment of deep learning models.

Bradley Holt leads a team of developer advocates within IBM who are democratizing data science and artificial intelligence (AI) through open source technologies. The team's work includes helping developers integrate open source deep learning models into their applications, ensuring trustworthiness and transparency from AI systems, promoting open standards for the deployment and operationalization of AI systems, and enabling better collaboration between developers, data scientists, and data engineers.
