I’ve developed or have been involved with a number of imaging technologies, everything from DIY synthetic aperture radar, the MIT thru-wall radar, to the next generation of ultrasound imaging devices. Imagery is cool, but what the end-user often wants is some way by which to get an answer as opposed to viewing a reconstruction. So let’s figure that out.
We’re kicking-off a discussion on how to apply deep learning to more than just beating Jeopardy champions at their own game. We’d like to apply deep learning to hard data, to imagery. Is it possible to get the computer to accurately provide the diagnosis?
I helped to organize a seminar series/discussion panel in New York City on November 13th (you know, for those readers who are closer to New York than to Munich). This discussion panel includes David Ferrucci (the guy who lead the IBM Watson program), MIT Astrophysicist Max Tagmark, and the person who created genetic sequencing on a chip: Jonathan Rothberg. As the vanguard of creativity and enthusiasm in everything technical we’d like the Hackaday community to join the conversation.
“How the Age of Machine Consciousness is Transforming Our Lives”
Date and Time: Thursday, November 13, 2014, 7:00-9:00 PM
All good meetings are fueled by food and drink, so be sure to join the cocktail reception in the SoHi room that will follow the panel discussion. From here you have an opportunity to meet and discuss one-on-one with our expert panel.
Also known as the IBM Watson guy, [David] is the Former VP of Watson Technologies who led development of the AI system that beat Jeopardy’s best.
An MIT professor and author of “The Mathematical Universe” and “Consciousness as a State of Matter.” In addition to this, Max is often on PBS Nova.
Inventor of high speed DNA sequencing. His latest venture, 4Combinator, aspires to transform medicine by integrating devices, deep learning and cloud computing.
I will also be there and available to talk. This is a free event but it is filling up fast, please be sure to register to reserve a seat: https://4combinator- speaker-series.eventbrite.com
See you soon!
