  1. Amazon Machine Learning: Empowering Developers to Build Smart Applications

    Amazon Machine Learning is a service that makes it easy for developers of all skill levels to use machine learning technology. Amazon Machine Learning’s powerful algorithms create machine learning (ML) models by finding patterns in your existing data. Then, the service uses these models to process new data and generate predictions for your application. Amazon Machine Learning can ingest data from Amazon S3, Amazon Redshift or Amazon RDS. In this session, we will demonstrate how Amazon Machine Learning can be used to build an ML model, deploy it to production, and query this model from within a smart application.

  2. Seeing Machines Think — Martin Wattenberg and Fernanda Viégas

    OpenVis Conf April 25th-26th, 2016 Interact with this and other talk videos on http://openvisconf.com/ Follow us on Twitter for more information: http://twitter.com/OpenVisConf

    Keynote, Day 1

    About our speakers: Fernanda Viégas and Martin Wattenberg lead Google’s data visualization research group. They are known for their contributions to social and collaborative visualization, and the systems they’ve created are used daily by millions of people. Before joining Google, the two led IBM’s Visual Communication Lab, which created the ground-breaking public visualization platform Many Eyes.

    Viégas has been named by multiple publications as one of the most influential women in technology. Her visualizations of email and online conversations led the way for new social media interfaces. Wattenberg, as a director of R&D at Dow Jones, created some of the earliest visualizations for digital journalism. Viégas holds a Ph.D. from the MIT Media Lab; Wattenberg has a Ph.D. in mathematics from U.C. Berkeley. Their visualization-based artwork has been exhibited worldwide, and is part of the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

  4. Distinguished Innovator Lecture - Anthony Levandowski, Project Lead, Google Driverless Cars

    A. Richard Newton Distinguished Innovator Series, featuring Anthony Levandowski, Project Lead for Google Driverless Cars

    Anthony Levandowski, a Cal grad (IEOR Bachelors and Masters degrees), is consistently recognized as an entrepreneur and innovator. While still in graduate school, he was featured in the Berkeley News as having "a rare combination of engineering brains and business acumen that once upon a time would have had venture capitalists speed-dialing his cell phone." After graduating, one of Anthony’s projects was building "Ghostrider", a robot motorcycle that drives itself. He worked on Ghostrider for the DARPA Grand Challenge, funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, the most prominent research organization of the United States Department of Defense. The motorcycle is now featured in the Smithsonian Museum of American history in Washington DC. Today, Andrew is the business lead of Google’s self-driving-car project. According to Sergey Brin, Google’s co-founder "you can count on one hand the number of years until ordinary people can experience this."

  5. Philly ETE 2016 #51 - AI: A Return to Meaning - David Ferrucci

    Artificial Intelligence started with small data and rich semantic theories. The goal was to build systems that could reason over logical models of how the world worked; systems that could answer questions and provide intuitive, cognitively accessible explanations for their results. There was a tremendous focus on domain theory construction, formal deductive logics and efficient theorem proving. The problem, of course, was the knowledge acquisition bottleneck; it was too difficult, slow and costly to render all common sense knowledge into an integrated, formal representation that automated reasoning engines could digest. In the meantime, huge volumes of unstructured data became available, compute power became ever cheaper and statistical learning methods flourished.

    AI evolved from being predominantly theory-driven to predominantly data-driven. Automated systems generated output using inductive techniques. Training over machine learning algorithms over massive data produced flexible and capable control systems, powerful predictive engines in domains ranging from language translation to pattern recognition, from medicine to economics. But what do the models mean? From the very inception of Watson, I put a stake in the ground; we will use a diversity of shallow text analytics, lev…

  8. GOTO 2012 • Scaling Yourself • Scott Hanselman

    This presentation was recorded at GOTO Aarhus 2012 http://gotocon.com

    Scott Hanselman - Principal Program Manager, Microsoft

    ABSTRACT As information workers, we are asked to absorb even more information than ever before. More blogs, more documentation, more patterns, more layers of abstraction. Now Twitter and Facebook compete with Email and Texts for our attention, keeping us up-to-date on our friends dietary details and movie attendance second-by-second. Does all this information take a toll on your psyche or sharpen the saw? Is it a matter of finding the right tools and filters to capture what you need, or do you just need to unplug. Is ZEB (zero email bounce) a myth or are there substantive techniques for prioritizing your life on the web? Come see Scott’s famous "Scaling Yourself" talk, adapted to take only 15 minutes of your time!
