Hacking – or thinking about hacking – at #HacktheHub and want to find out what will happening?
Come along to the pre hack, Thu 8 March to discover all about #HacktheHub and… UPSKILL IN MACHINE LEARNING!
We will be hosting a Machine Learning 101 Workshop. Whether you’re new to Machine Learning, or need a refresh on the fundamental concepts, this is the perfect talk for you.
This workshop will
– cover the core theory that drives Machine Learning
– leverage a dataset of Pokémon (All of them!) as a mechanism to frame all the ideas presented
– be the perfect beginner’s slice of the Machine Learning pie.
You will leave
– with an appreciation of the value of Machine Learning
– knowledge of the core concepts that drive this topic
– being better prepared to excel at the Hackathon.
Please bring your laptop!
Your workshop leader
Jordan is a software engineer at Kainos, specifically working in the applied innovation team. He has a passion for Artificial Intelligence (and by extension Machine Learning) which was ignited during his time at university where he tackled problems that include pedestrian and Glaucoma detection. If we fast forward to today, Jordan has accumulated what is approaching five years’ experience in the topic, both in leveraging classical Machine Learning approaches and more modern-day tooling such as Tensorflow. As well as this Jordan is a co-creator of AI Camp, a Kainos summer initiative which had the goal of teaching university students the core principles of AI while also giving them practical and applicable skills that will benefit them as software engineers.
At the pre hack you’ll also
– meet #HacktheHub partners like Bazaarvoice, Rapid7, Flexera, Aepona, Slice and AV Browne
– hear a bit about the hacker challenges
– meet the mentors and #HacktheHub team
– catch up other hackers (and even start forming teams)
– find out what’s planned for 24 & 25 March.
When & where?
