This event will feature two talks:

Hybrid Apps

Which is best … apps or web? Why not have both? The lines are getting increasingly blurred between the web and native apps. Operating systems are able to execute JavaScript from a remote web server, web apps are able to reach into your documents and fiddle around with them, you can wrap your website with rich, native functionality. In this talk we'll look at the murky and confusing world of hosted hybrid web apps. We'll look at the different tools available for creating hosted hybrid apps on multiple platforms. We'll look at where hosted hybrid apps work well and where they don't.

Machine Learning

Artificial Intelligence is the latest hotness. We’ve heard how bots are going to be the new apps allowing natural conversational interfaces. Siri, Cortana and Google Now are no longer a gimmick and are becoming more useful every day. Machine Learning sits behind artificial intelligence and on the surface it may seem like a deeply technical, scientific topic. We are here to tell you that it is more accessible than you think. We’ll look at some of the basics around machine learning. We’ll also look some of the API services that make it very easy to implement artificial intelligence ‘smarts’ into your application with simple, standard REST calls
