Introducing TensorFlow: The game changer in building "intelligent" applications.
Tensorflow was released almost a year ago. Since then there was a lot of news on this topic. Although it is very powerful, for most developers it could be bridge too far. This session is about what Tensorflow is, what the concepts are, how you start planning it applying for yourself. Some coding. Use cases and implementations will be shown.
Automated news insights: Machine learning techniques to make sense of the news.
Automated news insights - Using machine learning and data analysis techniques lots of insights can be extracted from for example news articles. Many techniques (such as search/analytics, clustering, sentiment, entity extraction, taxonomy) are around for some time and widely used in production, so there is nice (commercial and free) software to apply them. In this talk we'll show how some of them can be applied easily using elasticsearch, carrot2, and IBM Alchemy api.
Google enthusiast since 2004 (launch of Gmail) and GDG lead for GDG Cloud Netherlands and GDG Netherlands (Web). Professionally as CTO/Head of R&D of IT service provider Qualogy, Rokesh brings innovation and new technologies to the boardroom. From 2007 Rokesh and his team developed advanced solutions for modernizing Oracle legacy applications to new architectures (QAFE).
At this moment Rokesh his teams are diving into Machine Learning, Machine Intelligence, Google Cloud Platform (data products like: DataFlow, DataProc, BigQuery), Hadoop, Spark, and so forth. Cloud topics in general, like: Docker and Kubernetes. And Web development topics, like: Polymer Web Components and Progressive Web Apps.
Rokesh is also responsible for the business fellow relationship between Qualogy and LIACS (Leiden Institute of Advanced Computer Science, part of Leiden University). This partnership focuses on Data Science research and how to apply Data Science techniques within organizations.
