DataSciPy: State of the Art of Deep Neural Networks - Handwriting Recognition
Deep learning is being applied to every field that data scientists can get their hands on, but it still has its limitations. The field of automated handwriting recognition is pushing the boundaries of deep learning because documents are being digitized at a faster rate than humans can keep up with. In this presentation, Danny Hanson will discuss his capstone research on handwriting recognition and its integration into the crowdsourcing platform Zooniverse. He will discuss the state of the art in deep neural networks and how to collect appropriate data. Danny will talk about where the solutions for MNIST fail to generalize and how handwriting and speech are quite similar from a computer's perspective. Danny will include an interactive session using Jupyter notebook to show some aspects of his model.

What we're about

Are you interested in computational intelligence, machine learning, and artificial intelligence programming? Not sure how to improve your CI skills? Algorithms are the workhorses of our field. Learn them & they will take you to extraordinary digital landscapes.

We are programmers, software engineers and architects, and managers meeting twice per month for lunch. We enlarge our understanding of Extraordinary Algorithms by exchanging tips, techniques, and resources.

Expand your insights through dialogue with other self-directed coders and grow your AI skills.

Join us at the League of Extraordinary Algorithms.

Note for those encountering skepticism:

If you get raised eyebrows from your manager over a lunch hour that's a bit longer than usual, point them to this web-site. Let them know this is a professional networking and skill building group. We meet twice per month.

Participation enhances your professional value by learning new ideas of knowledge processing techniques. The only cost to your manager is a small amount of your time. However, skeptical or no, invite your manager to attend as often as their time permits.

A key factor for incorporating new computational ideas into your value stream is to know about Extraordinary Algorithms and how they will enhance both your, and your company's, productivity.

Special Thanks to Ms. Danielle Feliciano for the Extraordinary Artwork: (
