Accessible AI and ML for the Data Scientist
Accessible AI and ML for the Data Scientist

Abstract: 

How can a Data Scientist readily access today's rapid advances in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning? Primarily using open source software, the Machine Learning Hub (https://mlhub.ai/) is a repository of AI and ML tools and technology, and Data Science techniques. With a simple setup on any platform, the MLHub packages provide effective demonstrations and powerful command line tools to learn from and build upon. MLHub packages are installed directly from git repositories to be run locally. We will share the latest technology and learn how to readily explore such advances in technology, covering computer vision, natural language, and machine learning.
