Build Chatbots with IBM Watson

The Rostie Group

In this session, you’ll learn about chatbots and why businesses are quickly embracing them. We’ll show you how to build chatbots without writing any code by leveraging Watson Assistant. Finally, in the demo portion of the event, you’ll learn how to easily deploy chatbots to WordPress-based websites. You don’t need to be an AI expert or even a programmer to fully benefit from this session. Presenter: Antonio Cangiano (https://www.linkedin.com/in/antoniocangiano/) is a Software Developer and AI Advocate at IBM, a cutting edge technology enthusiast, and the author of Technical Blogging: Amplify Your Influence published by The Pragmatic Bookshelf.

Build your Smart Virtual Concierge with Raspberry Pi

The Rostie Group

Leveraging IBM Watson, Raspberry Pi, and Node-RED we’ll show you how to quickly and easily build a smart door with a built-in virtual concierge. In this session, you’ll first learn how to create a basic circuit working in conjunction with a Raspberry Pi board. Then, using Node-RED, we will leverage the built-in libraries to create a flow-based program that talks to an IBM Watson virtual assistant. This tutorial is perfect for those who have little to no programming experience. And if you are an experienced developer, you’ll likely find inspiration to explore creative IoT projects further. This will be presented by: Matthew Gretch, IBM Eric Quan, IBM Bios to follow.

Real World (and Out of this World) AI

IBM Canada Lab

Please note that this is a Power Systems of Greater Toronto Meetup. Please register at https://www.meetup.com/Power-Systems-GTA/events/265156924/ Join us for some Real World examples of AI at work for the better good of humanity. Topics range from reducing food waste to assisting astronauts in Space. As Canadians, every day we waste a total of 2.4M potatoes, 1.2M tomatoes, 1.2M apples, and many more. More than half of all food produced in Canada is lost or wasted. This totals to an equivalent to 9.8 million tons of CO2 or 2.1 million cars on the road (~10% of cars in Canada). At the International Space Station (ISS), astronauts have been introduced to CIMON the first ever AI robot in Space. CIMON can assist astronauts in day-to-day activities, especially in conducting scientific research, as well as providing emotional interactions in what can otherwise be a very isolating experience. Agenda 6:00 - 6:30 PM - Pizza 6:30 - 7:30 PM - Presentations - Intro - by Bruce Turgeon - "Project CIMON - AI in Space" - by Bruce Turgeon - "Using AI to reduce food waste" - by Florian Goebels 7:30 - 8:00 PM - Wrap-up

Introduction to Swift for Tensorflow

The Rostie Group

This workshop will introduce you to the world of Swift for TensorFlow - a brand new machine learning framework by Google. It uses the power of the Swift compiler, with its modularity and extensibility, to run source-to-source AD (Automatic Differentiation) and Tensor Operation Optimization, enabling a fast AND easy way to write machine learning code. You'll be building 2 applications: the world's fastest 2048 bot using monte carlo tree search, and a reinforcement learning agent that plays Cartpole with OpenAI Gym. Presenters: Steve Martinelli (https://www.linkedin.com/in/stevemar/) is a Senior Technical Staff Member (STSM) at IBM focused on creating AI related content on IBM Developer.
