Next Meetup

Intro to Julia lang (designed for AI & ML) + Hands on coding!
To start the new year, we'll check out Julia, a new and upcoming language, especially built for AI and ML. If you have a laptop, please bring it along for the hands on session after the talk. *** Introduction to Julia - the language of the future for AI and ML *** Zhuo Jia Dai (@dzj_evalparse) The Julia programming language (#julialang) has garnered some well-deserved attention for its ease of use and powerful performance (https://juliacomputing.com/press/2017/09/12/julia-joins-petaflop-club.html). In this talk, we will give an intro to Julia, and demonstrate its unique properties via a study of the canonical NMIST handwritten digit classification problem. You will see why the creators of Julia claims that Julia has the 'speed of C' and 'ease-of-use of Python. Finally, we will present a couple of interesting programming problems for you to work through on juliabox.com to help you get a feel for Julia. Bio: ZJ has 10+ years of experience in banking modelling/analytics/data science and has recently become an independent consultant. He has a maths background and runs the Sydney Competitive programming meetup and Julia (Julialang) meetup. NOTE: The group meets in the Sydney CBD, near Wynyard station, not in Revesby (there's been some map bugs around this)!
