KL AI Meetup
By alexlam Follow | Public

Anyone interested in recommendation engines, artificial intelligence applications with real world use implemented with current software technologies. Where AI or algorithms that can be used to help recommend anything, from what videos to watch, where to eat, find out things that may be of interest that we never knew!

Open AI, IBM Watson, Tensor Flow, Machine Learning, Deep Mind, Numenta, and many more in discussion.

Last season we had IBM and Intel joining in to provide us with tech vendor perspectives on AI.

This season we started off with Global 500 logistic giants DHL/Deutsche Post IT services head coming in to share on logistic innovation over the years and corporate innovation culture.

The groups grown larger now with separate conversations, key book references this week are:

Sapiens - https://www.amazon.com/Sapiens-Humankind-Yuval-Noah-Harari/dp/0062316095

Homo Deus - https://www.amazon.com/Homo-Deus-Brief-History-Tomorrow/dp/0062464310

Summary: All organisms are algorithms.

Intelligence is decoupling from consciousness.

Non-conscious intelligence know us better than we know ourselves.

Looks like there's a growing community of folks learning self driving, machine learning and deep learning from the Udacity Nanodegree course - check it out at https://www.udacity.com/nanodegree
