Details

Machine Learning is suddenly all the rage, and everyone is talking about it. We in IBM have partnered with NVIDIA and others, so we can do Machine Learning faster than anyone else. But, importantly, we can also make it much easier to do. So, let me take you through my journey, as a non-Data Scientist, where I taught a server to be able to identify the breed of a dog. I'll demo the results, and also how my resident dog expert, my daughter, expanded the model for me. Chocolates and the app, BeerAI, are also involved. Then I shall finish off with some use cases, as Machine Learning can do a whole lot more, including serious business!
