For the first time we'll be heading over to Wrexham to join the emerging tech community over there for an evening of tech talks and getting to know people.
* A Little About the Wrexham Enterprise Hub - Carl Turner
* Games Development at Glyndwr Uni - Richard Hebblewhite
* DoES Liverpool and Making Things - Adrian McEwan
* Artificially Intelligent Art - Carwyn Edwards
Lightning Talks So Far:
* Django Girls Chester - Liam Cookson
* Possibly one from Geraint
We'll also have some Lightning Talks to close off the evening. Do comment below if you'd like to do one (max 5 mins).
This event is hopefully the first of many collaborations with Town Square Spaces and the Business Wales Wrexham Enterprise Hub.
In this workshop we'll cover a little bit of the background of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning using Neural Networks, before trying out some libraries (PyTorch and TensorFlow) that can be used for Neural Style Transfer between images. This process captures elements of the style of two input images and produces an output which combines the two. We'll also look at using GPUs to accelerate the process, as well as using cloud computing.
We're also going to be joined by Aaron Owen from Supercomputing Wales who have also been doing some work with AI tools and will hear about what Supercomputing Wales do in general.
You will need to bring a laptop and ideally pick out some photos you would like stylized as well as some input style paintings.
Be warned, the process is very CPU or GPU intensive and if you want to play around with the cloud instances there could be small costs involved.
