SWE Boston Professional Development Event – AI Workshop Night

September 25, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:45 pm EDT


Join SWE Boston and MathWorks for two hands-on workshops on Artificial Intelligence (AI) – all in one night! This is a great opportunity to learn more about the fast-evolving technology of AI with experts working in the field, and no prior experience is required! Workshops include:

Edge AI with Raspberry Pi – Get started with edge AI! Deep learning is replacing traditional perception and identification algorithms across computer vision, data analytics, speech recognition, and natural language processing. In this workshop, you will develop a deep learning application that detects and classifies objects in an image. You will then deploy and run the application on a Raspberry Pi board.

How to Do AI with Things That Fly – What’s your favorite superpower? Ours is making things fly! We will do hands-on exercises using models to simulate a drone and AI to help it learn to fly on its own. Our goal is to get you excited about the engineering challenges and applications of deep learning and AI, and to set you up for success with maker projects and competitions after the event.

6:00 – 6:30 pm: Registration, Networking, and Dinner
6:30 – 6:45 pm: MathWorks and SWE Introduction
