We want to make Swiss businesses the most data-centric and agile in the world.

For the 10. event we will have a 2h intro workshop on Machine Learning / Deep Learning and application examples.

The tech giants are using deep learning already since 2011:

Google: Google Brain, speech-recognition, there are more than 1,000 projects underway incl. self-driving cars

Microsoft: commercial speech-recognition, search, photo search, translation systems and many more

Facebook: translations, photo search, spoked captions for visually impaired

Baidu: speech recognition, search, photo search, translation, self-driving cars
