Nike Tech Talk, Portland, 2017-08-10
O'Reilly Media gets to see the forefront of trends in artificial intelligence: what the leading teams are working on, which use cases are getting the most traction, previews of advances before they get announced on stage. Through conferences, publishing, and training programs, we've been assembling resources for anyone who wants to learn. An excellent recent example: Generative Adversarial Networks for Beginners, by Jon Bruner.
This talk covers current trends in AI, industry use cases, and recent highlights from the AI Conf series presented by O'Reilly and Intel, plus related materials from Safari learning platform, Strata Data, Data Show, and the upcoming JupyterCon.
Along with reporting, we're leveraging AI in Media. This talk dives into O'Reilly uses of deep learning -- combined with ontology, graph algorithms, probabilistic data structures, and even some evolutionary software -- to help editors and customers alike accomplish more of what they need to do.
In particular, we'll show two open source projects in Python from O'Reilly's AI team:
• pytextrank built atop spaCy, NetworkX, datasketch, providing graph algorithms for advanced NLP and text analytics
• nbtransom leveraging Project Jupyter for a human-in-the-loop design pattern approach to AI work: people and machines collaborating on content annotation
