We live in a fast-paced world. To keep up, a bunch of tech-enthusiasts with diverse backgrounds are meeting up regularly to dive into, learn, discuss and apply something, that is changing everything: Machine Learning.
Our primary focus is on engineering AI. We provide technical working sessions, ranging from Kaggle competitions to small hackathons, workshops and seminars. Our vision is to build a strong machine learning community in Tokyo, to collaborate and build cool stuff.
Other events may include talks, panel discussions and networking opportunities for a broader audience interested in Artificial Intelligence, Data Science and Machine Learning.
We're excited to explore the Deep Learning framework Chainer with a workshop by Crissman Loomis, Engineer / Business Development, Preferred Networks, Inc.
Starting with an introduction to the Deep Learning framework Chainer, Crissman will present how to structure basic Deep Learning models. Also covered will be CuPy, a NumPy-like API for calculations on NVIDIA GPUS, and Optuna, a hyper parameter optimization library. Attendees will be able to do hands-on work using Google Colab and to understand the uses and benefits of all three open source projects.

–– SPEAKER BIO ––
Crissman has worked at Preferred Networks on the Chainer team for over two years, focusing on improving the documentation for Chainer and giving presentations on Chainer at Open Data Science Conferences, Euro SciPy, PyCon, GTC, and other venues. His ODSC West workshop on Chainer was selected as one of the top 10 workshops for learning Machine Learning.
–– ACCESS DETAILS ––
Meetup area is located on the 3nd floor of Otemachi building which is directly connected to subway station Otemachi. If you take the C7 exit, you will find the entrance to the Otemachi building, then enter the building and take the nearest stairways to 3rd floor and turn right. The meetup area is just some steps away from the stairways.
