The Google Developer Group Denver Cloud (GDG Cloud Denver) brings together experts, beginners and enthusiasts alike to meet and discuss a wide array of topics related to Google Cloud. We strive to bring high quality speakers to share expertise about Google related technology with our group and hold networking events to strengthen the local commuity. Our goal is to hold meetings in or around downtown Denver. Disclaimer: GDG Denver is an independent group; our activities and the opinions expressed here should in no way be linked to Google, the corporation.
Have you wondered how Google DeepMind was able to get expert level results in Atari in a short amount of time with only the screen as input? This talk will go into details about Reinforcement Learning and the Q-Learning algorithm that made it possible. Using just a few lines of TensorFlow and Keras I will show how to implement these various iterations of the algorithm.
The meeting will also cover some of the newer features coming our of Google. Including TensorFlow v2 and the RL_Agent library.
Speaker: Evan Hennis is a recent graduate of Georgia Tech with a Master's degree in Computer Science with a specialization in Machine Learning. Recently, he became a Google Developer Expert (GDE) in Machine Learning because of his contributions to the community. These contributions were keeping up a blog (https://eckronsoftware.wordpress.com), a YouTube channel (Evan Hennis), speaking at conferences, and contributing to the TensorFlow open source project.
Topics: TensorFlow, Keras, Q-Learner, Double Q-Learner, Deep Q-Network, DDQN, RL_Agent, Deepmind and more
There will be pizza and networking to kick off the event
In this session we'll explore the recently announced Google Cloud Run. I'll demonstrate areas where Cloud Run shines and highlight some use-cases where Cloud Functions or App Engine might be better fit.
Bring your laptop setup and you can follow along!
I'll update this description with more details and the pre-setup instructions for your computer as we near the event.
