What we're about

AppliedAI is a monthly meetup and podcast (https://podcast.appliedai.mn) that develops Minnesota’s next generation of experts by educating citizens of all ages in the tools, processes, and applications that are needed to implement solutions that use Artificial Intelligence (AI). The organization runs regular events that involve training, learning and sharing real-world projects where AI is applied to solve problems that impact our lives.

Additionally, we encourage you to subscribe to our Conversation On Applied AI Podcast (https://podcast.appliedai.mn) . We publish new episodes every other week on topics related to Artificial Intelligence and its applications!

Applied AI transitioned from IoTFuse in February 2020. IoTFuse continues to run conferences around the metro area.

What is Artificial Intelligence

In computer science, artificial intelligence (AI), sometimes called machine intelligence, is intelligence demonstrated by machines, in contrast to the natural intelligence displayed by humans. Leading AI textbooks define the field as the study of "intelligent agents": any device that perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chance of successfully achieving its goals.[1] Colloquially, the term "artificial intelligence" is often used to describe machines (or computers) that mimic "cognitive" functions that humans associate with the human mind, such as "learning" and "problem solving".

What is AppliedAI?

Simple. :) It's the real-world applications that these far fetched, big ideas lead to. Some things aroud us that are applications of AI include digital assistants (Google Home, Alexa), self-driving cars, robots, chatbots and many many more!

Who should go AppliedAI Meetups?

This group is a place for anyone who is interesting in learning, sharing and applying Artificial Intelligence to their products and services. It's also for people of all ages just interested in what's going on in the AI space by networking and talking with real-world practitioners of this exciting and new technology.

What happens at AppliedAI Meetups?

• We have speakers and panelists talking about AI in real-world scenarios

• We do demos of AI related projects and explain how they work

• We discuss, where AI has been, where it is today and where it's heading in the future

• We have fun!

Introduction to Computer Vision with PyTorch

Online event

We are thrilled to welcome Sona Maniyan ( https://www.linkedin.com/in/sonamaniyan/ ) and Jeffrey Van Voorst ( https://www.linkedin.com/in/jeffvanvoorst/ ) as they introduce PyTorch and its application in Computer Vision with an example.

A brief outline from them includes:

- Introduction to PyTorch and Computer Vision
- Discuss how to solve image classification with Deep Learning
- Example demo with PyTorch

The code will be made available on Github after the presentation.

We are excited to have you join us and learn about doing Computer Vision with Pytorch.

What is PyTorch?

PyTorch is an open-source machine learning library based on the Torch library, used for applications such as computer vision and natural language processing, primarily developed by Facebook's AI Research lab (FAIR). It is free and open-source software released under the Modified BSD license. Although the Python interface is more polished and the primary focus of development, PyTorch also has a C++ interface.
