What we're about

AppliedAI is a monthly meetup 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.

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!

Data Science for Product Design & Operations: Going Beyond Buzzwords

Every day that passes, we learn about successful applications of machine learning and ways it can be applied in our daily lives. Every industry is working towards leveraging new techniques and tools to solve every day problems and continuously learn from them. Design and engineering are no different. Even though machine learning is not a new concept, applications of machine learning for design and manufacturing are relatively new due to recent developments in overcoming challenges with working with 3D shapes, emulating experts, augmenting data using simulations. In this presentation, I will discuss state-of-the art use of machine learning for product design and manufacturing as well as show some recent applications. -- Fatma Koçer-Poyraz has received a B.Sc. degree in Civil Engineering from the Middle East Technical University, Ankara, Turkey and MSc and PhD degrees from the University of Iowa in Structural Optimization. After graduation, she joined Visteon to develop processes for design optimization of structural and electromagnetic parts. In 2006, she started in Altair as Product Line Manager for Altair HyperWorks design exploration and optimization products. Currently she works as the Vice President for Engineering Data Science. In this role, she and her team works on engineering data science strategy, development and execution which includes investigating and applying latest technologies in the field, providing feedback to Altair software and supporting customer projects. Fatma Kocer-Poyraz is one of the recipients of Crain’s 2019 Notable Women in STEM recognition. https://www.linkedin.com/in/fatma-kocer-poyraz-5a0771
