AI Infusion

Wat we doen

After a successful edition in Delft (https://www.meetup.com/Delft-Digital-Meetup/events/265144628/) we are bringing this AI meetup to Amsterdam.

AI is slowly becoming part of our daily lives, so let's see how we as developers can use it in our projects. We'll start with a broad picture of the phenomenon and take you past the differences between Machine Learning and AI. From there we immerse ourselves in the intricacies of AI solution development, finally to emerge at the consumer end with a perspective on some worldly (and webby) applications.

A tour past AI and ML

Ruurd has both an academic and practical interest in Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence. He developed a real knack for processing imagery, working on anything from facial recognition to the classification of ancient documents without publishing any sensitive private data. From his unique perspective he can gently introduce us to the subject while having some state-of-the-art examples close at hand.

AI in web applications

As front-end developers we can enhance our web apps with AI and Machine Learning. Everyday there are more AI services that we can leverage. In his talk, Jasper will share projects De Voorhoede made with such services, how they designed and developed with them to create a rich user experience.
Jasper is a front-end tech lead at De Voorhoede always on the lookout for new technology.
