Helen Scott (https://www.linkedin.com/in/helenjoscott)
---------------------------------
=== Bio ===
Helen is a Java Developer Advocate who works with the development community to help them be awesome.
Helen believes that content creation and communication are the best ways to engage with the community and help everyone learn together.
Helen has worked at numerous software companies and has experienced the highs and lows of the software development cycle at all stages. Helen loves to learn new tools and technologies and share that journey of exploration.

=== Abstract ===
We learn to write code at university, bootcamp, or we teach ourselves. Then, after months/years, we launch ourselves at our development careers and also, inadvertently launch ourselves at a whole bunch of other skills, that we might not have even realised we needed. These skills are rarely taught on traditional routes, but it’s these skills, when combined with writing code, that make you a great developer.

=== Abstract ===
This talk is aimed at coding enthusiasts who may have heard a bit about quantum computing in the news, but have no idea what it means to actually start building quantum software. The talk is designed to give the audience a high-level overview of what quantum computing is and its real-world applications, as well as demonstrate how to get started building quantum circuits, writing quantum code, and contributing to quantum open source. This talk has no pre-requisites (although some basic python and Github knowledge would be beneficial).

=== Bio ===
Dr Ying Liu is a research associate of machine learning in University of Leicester and Tangi0. She graduated in Physics from the Queen Mary University of London in 2020. Her current project is to design a machine learning architecture for gesture recognition. Ying specialises in data analysis, algorithm design, python, cloud computing, docker and TensorFlow. As a passionate researcher, She loves solving difficult problems, and explain to others.

=== Abstract ===
We hear about companies talking about machine learning as a fancy feature. They are like the new buzzword for modern devices. What can they do and what can they bring to a company which needs gesture recognition? In this talk, Ying will show some industry cases and how machine learning benefits them. It offers an insight of what machine learning can do and where their limits sit. At the end of the talk, you will be offered a general tutorial of building a Neural Network model using TensorFlow. It's time to get your journey of Machine Learning started from here.
