前百度首席科学家吴恩达曾说“大脑能在一秒内完成的任何工作,都会被AI取代”;在国内,AI已写入政府工作报告;国际上,Google、Facebook、Microsoft、IBM、Apple、Amazon等科技巨头都已广泛布局AI领域。连加拿大政府也不甘示弱,最近宣布联合30家公司机构投入1.25亿加币巨资支持刚刚在多伦多成立的Vector学院,并趁机吸引深度学习之父Geoffrey Hinton回来做顾问力求在AI方面的新突破。

如果说去年你还在为AlphaGo打败李世石而惊叹,那么今年再看柯洁挑战AlphaGo显然已经不能吊足你对AI的胃口了。作为资深IT人,也许有的已经涉足AI领域,也许多数的动了心不想只“站在水边”了。可是网上那么多的AI资讯让你似乎无从下手,而且那些貌似高深的AI理论还让你产生了“不是个博士别提AI”的感觉。真是这样吗?面对AI的大潮,你就真的只有望AI而兴叹的份儿吗?

俗话说:百闻不如一见IT资深人协会将联合IBM举办AI系列的第一次讲座,通过3位主讲人的实际演示,把当今最新的AI技术展现在你面前。我们的目的就是让你知道:你不仅可以“看”AI,你还可以“学”AI。现在的AI发展阶段,就如同20年前互联网刚起步的阶段,谁也没有想到20年后互联网可以发展到现在的高度。早些接触AI,你能失去什么呢?

此次讲座,我们将包括以下的主题(演示为主):

  • Uncover the deep learning myth
  • AlphaGO and reinforcement learning
  • Computer vision (Demo)
  • Natural Language Processing (Demo)
  • Logistic regression classifier using TensorFlow (Demo)
  • Style transfer using deep learning and TensorFlow (Demo)
  • Current state of AI and its limitations
  • How to participate in the big wave
