What we'll do

JuniorDev Melbourne is back for 2020! Let's ring in the new year at our awesome sponsor & host Zendesk with some awesome tech talks. 🎉

Our fantastic talks for the night are as follows:

Azure Machine Learning Studio: Zero code solutions
Speaker: Akanksha Malik

Artificial Intelligence is growing at an unprecedented rate today. The availability of data and compute resources is making AI more accessible to everyone. Azure Machine Learning Studio provides a comprehensive platform for all skill levels – whether you have never created any ML models before or are an experienced data scientist. We will go through the overall platform with a focus on Designer and AutoML. These features were created as a no-code, visual drag and drop authoring interface to make these new advances in AI more readily available and accessible to everyone – regardless of your background. We will be going through an end to end demo on how to create and use a solution on these platforms.

Akanksha is a junior Data Scientist at Telstra Purple. After studying Financial Maths and Actuarial Science at UCC, Ireland, she realised she wanted to work with people as well as numbers. At Telstra Purple, she is working with clients to help them solve problems by making more informed decisions with data. She is a firm believer of diversity and inclusivity. She loves machine learning, and that it is becoming more accessible to everyone. She is an avid advocate for women in STEM and is currently a director of Women Who Code Melbourne.

On-Device Machine Learning: Core ML & Create ML for your next app!
Speaker: James Dale

Mobile devices are getting ever more powerful. With incredible performance capabilities now at our fingertips, machine-learning mobile applications are on the rise. Within the Apple ecosystem, Create ML and Core ML technologies allow developers to build realtime, personalised experiences that run on-device and leverage powerful hardware technology including the Apple Neural Engine. The technology allows you to create limitless experiences, including experiences incorporating image, sound, text, motion, and tabular data. In this talk we will go over some of these technology offerings and how you can leverage them to create compelling experiences.

James has just completed a twelve month internship in the Core Machine Learning team at Apple in California. Having been programming since the age of six, James has a passion for creating technology and tooling for everybody to be able to express their creativity and enable coding for everyone. He has completed his VCE and has worked at technology companies in Melbourne.


See you there ☺️
