What does it take to make the machine understand its environment while moving around (or flying)? How to teach a drone to race on its own safely in unfriendly environment? During this talk, you participate in all the stages of this exciting adventure from the first lines of code, through algorithmic struggles up to complete […]

Google’s AlphaGo is an extraordinary breakthrough for Artificial Intelligence. The game of 19×19 Go has 1.74×10^172 unique positions and is about a ‘googol’ times harder to calculate than chess. Experts thought it would take at least another decade before AI would be able to beat the best human players. So how did Google tackle this […]

Machine Learning has a lot of potential to make our apps smarter but all the theory and mathematics behind it is really hard! Thankfully, we can rely on trained models and public APIs to do some of the heavy lifting. In this session, we will take a look at some of these friendly Machine Learning […]

It’s one of the highest paid jobs in tech: Data Scientist. This year, Matthew Renze is introducing Data Visualization with R at Devoxx UK. Ahead of his talk, we asked him about Data Science and the art of data manipulation.   What is data science and why is it important? Data science is an interdisciplinary […]

From the giants of tech, Machine Learning (ML) is increasingly offered as an API or service. Instead of having to learn complex algorithms and play with hyperparameters, you can take advantage of pre-trained models. At Devoxx UK, Tara Walker is talking about Amazon’s offerings. We asked her what is available, and how it is useful.   […]

Last week, we looked at TensorFlow and the work of Stanford University researchers detecting cancerous skin lesions. This week we’re going to start looking at machine learning by getting started with TensorFlow. Imagine we have some data, and we expect it to have a linear relationship. Linear Regression is a machine learning technique that tries […]

There is a surge of interest in Machine Learning. If you aren’t in some way following the tidal wave of interest in the field, you are sure to be both directly and indirectly using Machine Learning in some way: in speech recognition on your phone, products recommended to you on the internet based on your […]

TensorFlow and Deep Learning – Without a PhD Google has recently open-sourced its framework for machine learning and neural networks called Tensorflow. With this new tool, deep machine learning transitions from an area of research into mainstream software engineering. In this session, we will teach you how to choose the right neural network for your […]
