Making Faces: Image Reduction and Recognition

Presented by: Steve Crow
Time: Thursday 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM

A 350px by 300px image contains 105,000 individual pixels. Comparing each pixel to tell whether or not two images are the same is not efficient. What if we could reduce the number of features, while still maintaining patterns and trends? What if we could perform this recognition by only comparing 25...

Intro to Machine Learning on the cheap and without a PhD in math: Overview

Presented by: Jim Wilson
Time: Thursday 9:15 AM - 10:15 AM

Machine learning has traditionally required a command of advanced mathematics, years of university training, and expensive hardware to implement. Now with better open source tools and online resources it’s easier than ever to create your own robust neural networks. Be it image recognition,...

Intro to Hacking with the Raspberry Pi

Presented by: Sarah Withee
Time: Thursday 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

You've heard lots of hype about the Raspberry Pi, the credit-card sized computer available for under $40. This (updated) talk will introduce some of the Pi's features, explore some sample projects you can create, and show you how to write code to control hardware through it's IO pins. After this...

Speed, security and simplicity: Creating Container Images with Cloud Native Buildpacks

Presented by: Daniel Mikusa
Time: Friday 8:30 AM - 9:30 AM

Buildpacks are a pluggable, modular, language-agnostic tool that takes application source code and in turn give you an OCI (Open Container Initiative) image which you can run using Docker, Kubernetes or your OCI Runtime of choice. Developers: You no longer need to worry about tedious tasks like...

Well.. that's ONNX-pected

Presented by: Ron Dagdag
Time: Friday 8:30 AM - 9:30 AM

The world of machine learning frameworks is complex. What if we can use the lightest framework for inferencing on edge devices? That’s the idea behind ONNX format. Attend this session and find out how to train models using the framework of your choice, save or convert models into ONNX, and deploy...
