From hello world to diagnosing cancer
An introduction to the amazing world of computational intelligence from the ground up.
We begin with evolving code with genetic algorithms, then move on to artificial neural networks and particle swarm optimisers, and ending off with how this mouth full of words can help us build a web service that can diagnose cancer with very high accuracy.
Naturally, with working code examples in ruby. Let's get weird.
Simon van Dyk is an aspiring code artisan at Platform45. He's done research in artificial neural networks and dynamic particle swarm optimisation and presented a talk at the largest Ruby Tech Conference in South Africa. With love for the developer community he has started Jozi Ruby's sister meet up, Pretoria Ruby.
We usually meet up in the restaurant at Higher Ground and move into a board room at about 7'ish
Travel along William Nicol Drive till you reach the Peter Place Road in the suburb of Bryanston. Turn into Peter Place Road and continue up the road. You will find the entrance to Higher Ground / One & Only Club on your left hand side
