In Part 2 of our 3-part series, Jennifer LaPlante from DeepSense will explain how participants can begin working with Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. Attendees will be introduced to free and easy ways to explore these technologies such as how to build a chat-bot feature or use image prediction and classification. The session will also cover methods participants can use to compare possible AI & ML initiatives.
Participants will walk away with:
• Knowledge of online tools available to start integrating artificial intelligence into their businesses or organizations
• Methods to compare possible AI & ML initiatives
Please Note: While this is a 3-part series on Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, attendees are welcome to participate in any number of sessions. It is not necessary to participate in Part 1 in order to attend Parts 2 or 3.
