- Machine Learning for Designers
Talk by Memi Beltrame Artificial intelligence is more and more becoming the core of digital products. Designing for products based on AI requires designers to know about Machine Learning. This talk is a vivid and entertaining introduction to the field of Machine Learning. It looks at its fundamental principles using practical examples. It showcases applications of the different types of Machine Learning. These range from text categorization to image recognition and speech analysis. The goal is to show what is important and why - not only for designers but for web-professionals and beyond. Memi is an experience designer with more backgrounds than a Wes Anderson movie. He's a college dropout (English Literature & Linguistics) and a trained film director. He's been writing code since he was 13, with absolutely no ambition other than to see what happens. This ambition got him to the field of UX where he enjoys finding out what people need, building it and having a good cry after testing. He is curious and if you give him a stick and a bear, he'll know what to do. He's not good at sports, so you might reconsider.

And how did it work out for us? I will try to give you a glimpse of our reality. // About the speaker: Loïc Schülé is an entrepreneur with an ETH Computer Science background combined with a past in consulting and web agency.
