February 13, 2018

Prerequisite: None

James McCaffrey, Ph.D.

Software Research Engineer

Microsoft Research - Deep Learning / AI School

Deep neural networks have been responsible for breakthroughs in speech recognition (Siri & Cortana), pattern recognition (self-driving cars), and machine learning (predicting NFL football scores). The use of deep neural networks is in its infancy and has the potential for breakthroughs with similar huge impact. In this lively, informal, but informative session, Dr. James McCaffrey from Microsoft Research will explain exactly what deep neural networks are and how they work, without using Greek letters or annoying math jargon. You'll leave this session with a solid understanding of deep neural networks, know what they can and cannot do, and have all the information you need to communicate with subject matter experts.
