    What is your (Computer) Vision of AI?
    Federica Citterio, Data Scientist, SAS Global Technology Practice Aug 8 2019 1:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    While some still associate Artificial Intelligence with robots taking over the world, we are surrounded by far more realistic and beneficial examples of AI in our everyday life.

    Find out how applications of computer vision reinforce the interplay between man and machine.

    About the Webinar:

    In the last few years, the field of machine learning has made tremendous progress around computer vision. Convolutional neural networks can achieve reasonable performance on difficult visual recognition tasks – matching or even exceeding human performance in some domains.

    In this session we will explore successful use cases for computer Vision including various industries and aspects of everyday life. We want to uncover the value of moving your AI projects out of the lab and into the business.

    From recognizing faces to processing the live action of a football game, computer vision opens many exciting possibilities.

    Find out what it takes to really capitalize on advancements in AI.

    Many Data Scientists tend to get very excited about deep learning. And why not? It has strongly contributed to the further development of game-changing applications like computer vision or Neural Language Processing.

    However, before starting any computer vision endeavours, it pays to zoom in on some basics: Using a repeatable end-to-end process – to guide you through image pre-processing, deep learning and productionising your models - will help ensure your deep learning models are as accurate as possible and take your models out of the lab and drive actual business value.
