Announcing the BootstrapLabs Applied AI Insiders Series

During our May Applied AI Insiders Series event, we will explore practical ways AI is being applied to different Human/Computer interfaces, moving us beyond touch and closer to how we interact with other humans – using speech, gestures and even body language.

This event is INVITE ONLY. If you did not receive an invitation you can request one below.


Google Duplex: An AI System for Accomplishing Real-World Tasks Over the Phone

A long-standing goal of human-computer interaction has been to enable people to have a natural conversation with computers, as they would with each other. In recent years, we have witnessed a revolution in the ability of computers to understand and to generate natural speech, especially with the application of deep neural networks. Read more.

10 Promising AI Applications in Health Care

There’s a lot of excitement right now about how artificial intelligence (AI) is going to change health care. And many AI technologies are cropping up to help people streamline administrative and clinical health care processes.

5 Ways To Ensure AI Unlocks Its Full Potential To Serve Humanity

We’re in a defining moment for the intelligent age. Artificial intelligence will be the great general-purpose technological advance of our time. Born of advances in computing power and an explosion of data, AI will meaningfully impact every major industry, expanding the global economy by trillions of dollars. Read more.

Why It Pays To Be An Early Adopter Of AI

One reason they’re disadvantaging themselves is that AI is a process, not a one-off technology solution. AI applications are only as good as the data that is fed to them over time, and as a result, the true gains, such as higher revenue, lower customer churn and more productive staff, take time to materialize. Read more.

Forget the space race, the AI race is just beginning

The United States and China currently dominate the world of artificial intelligence, but used very different approaches to get there. While the US’s academic system has generated and incubated the research that made today’s AI possible, China’s government has pledged billions in funding and offered the technology its full-throated support. Read more.

Over the next several weeks we’ll be releasing the videos from the sessions from the BootstrapLabs Applied AI Conference 2018. During this session, Alex Holub discussed the future of Machine Learning, Automated Machine Learning and the notion of Master Algorithms.


BootstrapLabs AAI18 Panel – Enterprise AI Applications and the Future of Work

Over the next several weeks we’ll be releasing the videos from the sessions from the BootstrapLabs Applied AI Conference 2018. The yearly conference organized by BootstrapLabs, a leading Venture Capital firm focused on Applied AI, that brings together over 800 members of the Artificial Intelligence community for a day of incredible speakers and exciting conversations.

Speaker: Alex Holub, Founder, Vidora

If you want to check out the slides used by the speaker follow this link.

During this session, Alex Holub discussed the future of Machine Learning, Automated Machine Learning and the notion of Master Algorithms.

Some of the key takeaways from the session are:

  • All machine learning implementations within an organization have to go through 4 fundamental steps: pre-processing, feature cleaning, feature engineering, and modeling.
  • Metalearning, having the machine learning system learn from the raw data as it goes through the different possibilities of pre-processing, feature cleaning, feature engineering and modeling techniques.
  • Leveraging Master Algorithms that can deal with raw data and figure out the best path will give everyone access to building these complex machine learning models without having written a single line of code.

About Alex Holub:
Alex is the Co-Founder and CEO of Vidora, a leading ML company working with companies like News Corp, Walmart, and Yahoo! Japan. Prior to co-founding Vidora, Alex was a technical and product management lead at Ooyala.

Announcing the BootstrapLabs Applied AI Insiders Series: Human and Computer Interaction – Moving Beyond Touch

BootstrapLabs Applied AI Insiders Human Computer Interaction

BootstrapLabs is thrilled to announce the Applied AI Insiders Series: Human and Computer Interaction – Moving Beyond Touch.

Event Summary:

  • Date and Time: Thur, May 31, 2018| 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm
  • Location: The Google Launchpad Space, 345 Spear St 5th Floor, San Francisco, California 94105
  • Registration:this event is INVITE ONLY. If you did not receive an invitation you can request one below.

 

 

Event Description

Topic: Human and Computer Interaction – Moving Beyond Touch

We stand in front of the 4th and largest wave of the industrial revolution, powered by Artificial Intelligence and Data. This is the biggest opportunity so far for innovation and entrepreneurship, and every single industry will be disrupted and redefined by companies that are not yet even born.

With the AI economic impact projected to reach $15 Trillion by 2030, we believe Applied Artificial Intelligence represents one of the major wealth creation opportunities of this century.

The interaction between Humans and Computers has been in constant evolution. Until the invention of touch screens, our connection with these devices was indirect and relied on additional equipment like a keyboard, screen, stylus, and mouse. It was only a matter of time until AI would be leveraged to radically change that connection, and move us closer to what Dr. J.C.R. Licklider, the pioneering psychologist and computer scientist, forecasted in 1963, a human-computer partnership.

During our May Applied AI Insiders Series event, we will explore practical ways AI is being applied to different Human/Computer interfaces, moving us beyond touch and closer to how we interact with other humans – using speech, gestures and even body language. Sensors that can understand our unique appearance, gestures, emotions or vital signs, voice-enabled interfaces that can hear and “understand” what we say, and even prosthetics that can interact with the electrical impulses our brains uses to control our body, are just some examples of where we’re heading.

We will explore the added benefits of these interfaces, but also share thoughts on some of the biggest challenges facing broader adoption of this technology. To get us to the next phase in human-computer collaboration, these systems must gather and analyze countless information on users, but how do we ensure privacy and secure that sensitive data?

As a VC focused on Applied AI, BootstrapLabs looks beyond the hype and has assembled an extraordinary panel of speakers to take you through the current state of AI and Human Computer Interaction. Read more.
