Upcoming events (5)
A technology session to enable the attendees and participants to understand Location Services and Applications related to Maps. It will include Market insights on industry trends and an overview of the available tools and platforms in addition to an introduction to HERE Location and Free Open Data platforms. Participants will get an overview of HERE Location Services and how to use them. This session will be part of the 8 sessions series to empower you with the right tools for your development. We will be including an overview of HERE Location Services (HLS), all the APIs, and how to use it for different use cases. All from a technical perspective. In each part of the series, you will have a hands-on opportunity to learn how to build a location-based project with HERE Technologies, the world's #1 location platform. Get a head start today by signing up for IBM Cloud via → https://ibm.biz/HERETechnologies Part 2: Build an app using the Disaster Resiliency Starter Kit Use this starter kit to understand how technology can help our society become more resilient to disasters and kick-start your solution with this idea for an AI-based app that prepares communities for floods. The starter kit, composed of a React Native front end and Node.js backend, integrates with Watson Assistant and HERE Location Services. It gives developers a template to quickly get started building a solution. 🎓 Learning outcomes * Setup IBM Cloud services using this Starter kit * Explore HERE Maps API * Explore HERE Routing API 👩💻 Who should attend? * Web Developers * Mobile Developers * Backend Developers * UI/UX Designers * Product managers 🎈Prerequisites: Please do the following before the workshop: 1.

Firebase Live is a web series for app developers consisting of talks, tips, and technical tutorials aimed at increasing their productivity, knowledge, and collaboration. Hosted by the familiar faces of the Firebase team, each week we’ll release a new video highlighting the latest best practices and product updates. You can chat with Firebasers and other developers during the video, and Firebase experts will answer questions live after the video ends. Tune in from the comfort of your home office (or couch) to learn what’s new in Firebase and get your burning questions answered! We’ve also created a new demo and new codelabs (some include full walkthrough videos) so you can continue to learn at your own pace even after the live sessions end. Coming up on July 14th: 'The Firebase Developer’s Guide to Google Analytics' and our next featured Codelab video: 'Firebase Performance Monitoring for the web' Watch Firebase Live Tuesdays at 9:30 PST from June 23rd through July 21st: https://firebaseonair.withgoogle.com/events/firebase-live20#
Quantum computing is an emerging technology that has the potential to offer exponential speedups over traditional computing for certain classes of problems. After decades of pioneering research, access to small prototype quantum processors is now available to anyone, along with a growing set of tools to program them. The race is on to develop new algorithms that harness this completely new computing paradigm while contending with the noise that remains prevalent in these early-stage quantum devices. This event will introduce basic ideas in quantum computing, survey the state of the art in building real quantum computers, and provide a hands-on introduction to the Qiskit programming language for building and running quantum algorithms. 🎓Specific highlights will include the following: * Superposition and entanglement * Decoherence and other sources of error * Superconducting qubits and other realizations * Quantum circuits and compilers * Algorithms for noisy quantum computers In order to participate in the hands-on portion of this event, please register in advance for an account on the IBM Quantum Experience at http://ibm.co/iqx. 👀Agenda (Pacific Time): * 9:30 am: Event kick-off * 9:45-11:00 am: Webinar * 11-11:15 am - Final Q&A 🎙Speaker: Doug McClure is a Research Staff Member and Manager of Quantum System Deployment at IBM Research in Yorktown Heights, New York. Since joining IBM in 2012, he has focused on several aspects of building quantum computers based on superconducting qubits: improving quantum measurements, qubit coherence times, and most recently the performance and reliability of large multi-qubit systems. He received his PhD in experimental physics from Harvard University, where under the guidance of Professor Charlie Marcus he studied the physics of fractional quantum Hall states with potential applications in topological quantum computing.
Deep learning is evolving quickly. Important new developments are appearing daily. This group attempts to keep up by reading and discussing current deep learning literature. This meetup uses discussion among the participants to speed understanding of current research results. That requires that some participants read the paper before attending. Anyone is welcome to attend and listen without reading the paper. If nobody reads the paper, the meeting will be short. Papers that we're reading, code that participants generate, and other random stuff can be found at GitHub site for the group. mike-bowles/hdDeepLearningStudy (https://github.com/mike-bowles/hdDeepLearningStudy) https://openreview.net/forum?id=Hkxzx0NtDB - Your classifier is secretly an energy-based model.
