Neural Networks: The Good Bits

8:30AM-9:40AM, AI 1/Virtual and Augmented Reality - Room 1052

So you already know a little bit about Neural Networks and can do some of the basics? Are you ready for the really cool stuff? Let me show you the way. The expectation for this course is that you already have a fundamental knowledge of Neural Networks either from my other talk “A Primer to Neural Networks” or via your own study. Topics and Demos Include: Loss Functions: Where the real money is Custom Activation Functions Modern Neural Network Architectures Approaches for quick research and development Learning Analytics: How to know when to try something different

A Developer's Survey of AI Methodologies

1:20PM-2:30PM, AI 1/Virtual and Augmented Reality - Room 1052

Artificial Intelligence is far more than just machine learning. There are a variety of tools and techniques that systems use to make rational decisions on our behalf. In this survey designed specifically for software developers, we explore a variety of these methods using demo code written in c#. You will leave with an understanding of the breadth of AI methodologies as well as when and how they might be used. You will also have a library of sample code available for reference.

Building AI Solutions with Google OR Tools

2:40PM-3:50PM, AI 1/Virtual and Augmented Reality - Room 1052

We depend on Artificial Intelligences to solve many types of problems for us. Some of these problems have more than one possible solution. Handling those problems with more than one solution while building a modern AI system is something every developer will be asked to do over the course of his or her career. Figuring out the best way to utilize the capacity of a device or machine, finding the shortest path between two points, or determining the best way to schedule people or events are all problems where mathematical optimization techniques and tooling can be used to quickly and efficiently find solutions. This session is a software developers introduction to using mathematical optimization in Artificial Intelligence. In it, we will explore some of the foundational techniques for solving these types of problems, and use the open-source Google OR-Tools to put them to work in our AI systems. Since this is a session for developers, we'll keep it in terms that work best for us. That is, we'll go heavy on the code and lighter on the math.
