Using Docker Containers to Replace SDK's and Support Any Programming Language 01:00 PM Adams Platforms such as Kaggle or Algorithmia allow users to develop and execute code on a remote system. Often platforms of this type will offer an SDK for each supported language giving developers a defined framework to work within. But this places the onus on the developer to learn how to use each particular framework and restricts their ability to download environmental dependencies that they may require. In this session we will review how we have been able to circumvent the need for various SDK's and instead allow users to upload their entire virtual machine (container) into the platform. This approach allows developers to use any operating system, runtime language, and supportive dependencies that they need while leaving the platform at large entirely agnostic to these developer preferences.

  • How Artificial Intelligence Startups Are Helping Early Adopters Win

    CIC Boston, 50 Milk Street, 02109

    **MUST SIGN UP VIA EVENTBRIGHT** https://www.eventbrite.com/e/machine-learning-superpowers-how-artificial-intelligence-startups-are-helping-early-adopters-win-tickets-48692599877 Machine learning is transforming information work in almost every industry, with startups creating software that automates common tasks at a level of efficiency, accuracy, and insight that is literally superhuman. We've brought together the leaders from several such startups, across a variety of industries, to each share insights from building a machine-learning powered product that is giving their customers superpowers. Each speaker will give a 5 minute lightning talk presentation, followed by 5 minutes of Q&A. This kind of "narrow" AI is increasingly acheivable, and represents a classicly successful startup opportunity: being able to combine cutting-edge technology with expertise from a background in a particular industry. We hope this set of lightning talks will provide a jumpstart for founders & technologists that might see applications for machine learning in their own areas of interest, and a hot lead on a competitive advantage for company leaders in industries these startups are serving. Join us! This event is part of the Tech & Industry Trends track at Startup Boston 2018. Our Speakers: Rich Palmer - Cofounder & CTO at Gravyty Jacki Leahy - Director of Business Development at LinkSquares Tomas Ratia - Cofounder & CEO at Frase

  • How AI Will Power the Future of Voice

    C. Walsh Theatre

    Electronic personal assistants are conquering the world right now. Currently, the biggest tech companies are focusing their attention on artificial intelligence. This opens a wide variety of opportunities for developers and benefits customers. digital assistant can access different devices, complete tasks, provide all kinds of information or just tell a bedtime story to your kids. You can create custom skills based on your needs and implement them for Alexa, Cortana, and Siri. In this session, you'll learn about artificial intelligence and how it works in digital assistant applications. You'll see how to start developing a custom skill for Cortana right from your Visual Studio. We'll walk you through UMass Medical School professor' directory skill. And then provide insights of Cortana versus Alexa skills development. You'll get enough inspiration to start developing your own skills. Keywords: artificial intelligence, deep learning, machine learning, artificial intelligence, AI, voice, data science, big data, neural networks, analytics.

  • How to Monetize Machine Learning Algorithms

    WeWork St. James

    So you've created an interesting algorithm (or you intend to). Great! But then what? How do we deploy and license a potentially commercially viable model to a business or software developer who can actually leverage our work to improve their user applications or further business objectives? There are a number of ways to make money in Machine Learning. Machine learning engineers currently command among the highest tech engineer salaries. But if we want to work independently, have time restrictions, or simply want to have the flexibility to work on the projects of our own choosing what options are available to us? In this Meetup we will walk you through a full demo showing you how to create a commercially viable model, upload that model to an API marketplace, and begin selling access to that work. We will be using TensorFlow (https://www.tensorflow.org/) as our machine learning framework and Macgyver (https://askmacgyver.com/) as our API platform (https://askmacgyver.com) (https://askmacgyver.com/). Disclaimer: * This event is likely to reach capacity quickly. * We will be providing the names and emails of attendees to WeWork.

  • Machine Learning in the Wild

    Location visible to members

    In this meet-up we will hear from two speakers each of whom are actively working for companies out of Boston who apply state-of-the-art machine learning techniques in order to solve real world problem for the clients and society at large. This is a great opportunity to meet with people in the space, learn more about how companies are leveraging machine learning, and network in general. --- Speakers --- Brendan McCord (https://www.linkedin.com/in/m-brendan-mccord-2a109938?authType=NAME_SEARCH&authToken=YHxp&locale=en_US&trk=tyah&trkInfo=clickedVertical%3Amynetwork%2CclickedEntityId%3A131585881%2CauthType%3ANAME_SEARCH%2Cidx%3A1-1-1%2CtarId%3A1478691235564%2Ctas%3ABrendan%20McCord) Director EvolvTechnology (http://evolvtechnology.com/) / MOSAIQ (https://www.linkedin.com/title/director%2C-mosaiq?trk=mprofile_title) Brendan McCord is Director at Evolv Technology, where he leads the software and intelligence team building Evolv’s real-time threat detection and prevention platform. Evolv is a Waltham-based startup backed by Bill Gates, General Catalyst, Lux Capital, and Data Collective that is comprised of a multi-disciplinary team of experts. Our goal is to reinvent physical security by combining powerful sensors, AI, and human IQ in a distributed system. The Mosaiq platform was built for today's threats and it introduces a proactive approach to security that shatters the status quo. Before joining Evolv, Brendan was a nuclear engineer, spent 610 days underwater, and graduated from MIT and Harvard Business School. ____________________________________________________________ Rob Speer CTO at Luminoso (http://www.luminoso.com/) Rob Speer is the chief scientist at Luminoso. He is an alumnus of the MIT Media Lab, where he worked on the ConceptNet project, an open, multilingual semantic network. With ConceptNet as a foundation, he developed a system that analyzes natural language text and represents its word meanings as embeddings in a vector space, which would become the foundation of Luminoso. At Luminoso, he directs the NLP research and data science that improves the effectiveness of Luminoso's software and makes new techniques possible in text understanding. He supports Luminoso's contributions to open-source software, including "ftfy", a tool for fixing Unicode errors that has been recommended by the Awesome Python list (http://awesome.re (http://awesome.re/)). He continues to develop and support ConceptNet, and uses it to produce state-of-the-art multilingual word representations, which perform better than popular systems such as word2vec at matching human intuitions about word meanings. --- Discussion Topics --- • How each company is utilizing machine learning to solve actual problems. • Low level tools being used to solve these problems. • Their workflow. • Discoveries or interesting anecdotes from working in the field. --- Agenda --- 5:45-6:30pm: Food/Network 6:30-7:30pm: Brendan McCord + Q&A 7:30-8:30pm: Rob Speer + Q&A --- Address --- Boston Coalition (https://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&q=101+Arch+St%2C+19th+floor%2C+Boston%2C+MA%2C+us) 101 Arch St, 19th floor, Boston, MA 19th Floor Google Maps (https://www.google.com/maps/place/Coalition/@42.3549885,-71.0609032,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x89e37083009934c3:0xd9043625da22ca7b!8m2!3d42.3549885!4d-71.0587145) Parking Maps (https://www.google.com/maps/search/parking+by+101+Arch+Street/@42.3548542,-71.0636637,16z/data=!3m1!4b1) *This event will likely fill quickly up please RSVP soon.
