#1 Cologne School of AI Meetup (Deep Learning and Recommender Systems)

27. März 2019 @ 18:30 - 21:00

The first Cologne School of AI meetup is finally scheduled.
Thanks to inovex we have a great location with drinks and food provided.
We hope to see as many of you as possible.
Let’s extend this community together !

If anyone is interested to be a speaker – feel free to send a message to [masked] !

Currently we’re looking for one more speaker.

18:30 – Doors open
19:00 – Speaker TBA : Introduction to Deep Learning
19:45 – Pizza, Beer & Networking
20:15 – Marcel Kurovski : Recommender Systems and Deep Learning

Topic description:

Online giants like Amazon, Netflix and Spotify use Recommender Systems and Machine Learning to personalize content. This development is accompanied by another remarkable trend in learning machines: Deep Learning.

Almost daily we hear about the tremendous progress rumored to make humans obsolete in more and more domains: skin cancer detection, No-Limit-Hold’em Heads-Up Poker, or speech recognition (no, not yet another Alpha-Go example).

In this talk, Marcel will share his insights in this emerging research area and those of other big players.

Your vote decided:
The poll showed that a lot of you are interested in speakers talking about business use-cases of AI.
Marcel Kurovski will give us an introduction to recommender systems with Deep Learning and yet we’re trying to find another speaker to talk about neural networks and business use-cases.

Even though the topics are more advanced don’t be afraid to participate.
We are trying to provide you with some basics while going deeper into each topic.

Furthermore, the meetup should be a great way to team up in study groups and share knowledge.

Finally I’ll post some recommendations to read in advance so you can prepare yourself for the topics that we’ll discuss. Even though we will have speakers talking in this meetup, we gladly appreciate if you participate in the community pro-actively – that means:
–> you could write blog posts e.g. on medium and share it in our comment section

–> you can send us a message about what you would like to discuss in the meetups and ideas you might have

–> write us if you want to be a speaker, we want to give everyone the opportunity to practice public speaking and trying to give good feedback

See you soon!
