CAN MY COMPUTER MAKE JOKES
Anyone interested in understanding how Word2Vec Recurrent Neural Networks work? What about doing it while teaching your computer to make jokes?
Diogo Pinto, a Data Scientist at Feedzai shows you how to do this. Diogo calls himself a Machine Learning, Security and Scala Enthusiast, multipotentialite, parkour practitioner and a full-time wisdom seeker.
The talks is aimed at anyone with an introductory level of knowledge of Deep Learning, that want to know more about how Recurrent Neural Nets works.
P.S.: Be warned, computer jokes will be bad, but imagine it like your weird friend that fills in the silence with the driest jokes ever.
BUILDING A SERVERLESS CLOUD SERVICE
Serverless is a cloud architecture for executing code on-demand,
without running any application servers or managing any server
infrastructure. In this talk, we'll take a look at how to build a
cloud service in a serverless fashion using Python, AWS API Gateway,
and AWS Lambda.
John Chang is a co-founder and principal engineer at SURFnCODE, a
startup-that-creates-startups based in Matosinhos. Before coming to
Portugal, John worked for more than 15 years in senior software
engineering positions at Apple in California and Skype and Microsoft
