Toronto AI Workshop – Convolutional Neural Networks

Toronto AI – Convolutional Neural Networks
Thursday, August 10, 2017
6:15 PM to 8:30 PM
Naborly
302-207 Adelaide Street East, Toronto, ON

Join us for a fascinating evening where we dive into convolutional neural networks.

We will explore some of the concepts and applications behind this powerful form of machine learning, followed by a code demo on how these neural nets can be implemented in TensorFlow. Plenty of social time is planned.

Our friends at Naborly are sponsoring us with their uniquely brilliant space downtown for this event so it will be a very cool night with them. Stay tuned for more details!

Side note: we are starting to collaborate with the Toronto Women’s Data Group – they are hosting some really great events specifically for the community of women (i.e. band of data ninjas) in data science, so be sure to check them out!

AI workshop – TensorFlow intro

We’re hosting a intro-level AI workshop at the Toronto City Hall on June 28th –  that explores machine learning with Python and the open source library TensorFlow.  TensorFlow is the second generation machine learning system behind Google Brain (https://research.google.com/teams/brain/).

There will be a presentation and during that time we’ll walk through the code and use visualisations that allow us to actually see how its internal representation morphs over time as it learns.  We’ll also try out some live AI experiments to get an intuitive feel for how the model behaves.

AI workshop – TensorFlow intro

Wednesday, May 31, 2017
Door access from 6:10 to 6:30pm

We introduce and explore the basics of TensorFlow (https://www.tensorflow.org/), the second generation machine learning system behind Google Brain (https://research.google.com/teams/brain/), in a presentation+workshop setting, where we’ll walk through a simple machine learning code example together with visualizations that allows us to see what is happening in real time during the training

То access the building, please arrive between 6:10 and 6:30. Huge thank you to Ryan at Workhaus (http://workhaus.bz) for sponsoring us with the space!

At 8:00 if there is space, we’ll then head out for drinks just outside, at either Jason George (http://www.thejasongeorge.ca/) or the patio at the Corner Place (http://www.thecornerplace.ca/).

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Note: For those who attended the previous meetup: this is a replay of that event with the same workshop, providing the chance to those who were waitlisted last time to attend and anyone who is interested

Pre-requisites

– A laptop with Anaconda installed (download here (https://www.continuum.io/downloads)). Once installed, create a Python 3.5 (i.e. not 3.6) environment within Ananconda Navigator.

Google auto machine learning changes its own architecture

Google is researching AutoML (Auto Machine Learning) in which it has the ability to change its own architecture directly. This can self test thousands of times to improve overall performance.

From the article: “The AutoML procedure has so far been applied to image recognition and language modeling. Using AI alone, the team have observed it creating programs that are on par with state-of-the-art models designed by the world’s foremost experts on machine learning.”

AI Intersections with VR (+ VR demo) and Discussion

Date: 2017 04 20

Time: 6:00pm

Toronto City Hall Committee Room #2; Second Floor

А discussion of intersections between AI and virtual reality (and/or augmented reality) at City Hall with some VR content demoed by the very talented Nick Fox-Gieg, followed by general discussions and networking.

This is a grass-roots event that mixes interesting content with opportunities to connect with others and to foster innovation and project collaboration in the Toronto AI community

A big thanks to the City of Toronto and Joe Mazzei for making this possible

Directions: Go to the ground level front entrance to City Hall at the Nathan Phillips Square, then head inside to the stairs on the left.  Signs are along the way (it’s easy to find :))

Toronto AI – After Work Social

Date: 2017 04 07

Firkin on Bloor

Are you exploring AI?  If so, well then just try to at least socialize with others exploring AI once in a while 😉   We’re connecting people like you in the AI community together to discuss advancements, share opportunities, sketch ideas, and connect.  This event is just social, so no laptop is required, but you will need one for the next workshop we’re planning 🙂  Bring an inquisitive mind and let’s see you there!

Intro to AI – Getting Started

Date: 2017 03 22
Firkin on Bloor

Hello world! 🙂

Bring your own laptop, we’ll be diving into some artificial intelligence. Also, we’ll be looking at setting up some actual code with some of the libraries out there which we’ll build upon for with future meetups. We’ll be introducing a hello-world equivalent using the scikit framework for this session.

Whether you’re a beginner or an expert, all that matters is your interest in the subject, the rest will work itself out
