Title: The mechanics of Deep Learning - the Engineer version - Yosi Taguri @ Missing Link AI

Abstract:
Deep Learning is a super power for engineers who master it. It allows to solve complex and abstract problems that were the domain of Data Scientist and PhD's who'd spent years in academia. In this session we'll understand the mechanics behind Deep Learning and what makes them so powerful. By the end of this session you will be able to build your own Neural Network and start to explore a super power you didn't know you have.

Title: The Race for AI: Deep Reinforcement Learning - Yam Peleg @ Deep Trading

Abstract:
You may have noticed that computers can now automatically learn to play ATARI games and they are beating world champions at Go. All of these advances and some of the future ones will fall under the umbrella of Deep Reinforcement Learning, The art of training and AI model based on positive and negative reinforcements.
In this tutorial we will review and learn about Deep Reinforcement Learning, from the pioneering research of the fields to hands on demos live.
