AI Made Easy

You've surely heard about artificial intelligence… But what is it exactly?

This half-day workshop will help you understand what artificial intelligence is:  

  • What's the technologies behind AI and deep neural networks
  • What is the complexity of AI algorithms
  • What hardware and software environment do you need to run your own AI?

Keynoters will also discuss the importance of neurosciences. In other words, how biology and brain-inspired technologies will help create greater low-power solutions leveraging spike coding, and deep learning solutions —regularization, pooling, dropout, and much more.

For who?

  • Industrials
  • Anyone curious about AI
