About this event

Nowadays everybody talks about machine learning. Even it looks like magic, it doesn't have to be like this. Join us on the meetup in which Laurent from Google shows us how to do it without magic. This meetup is targeted to developers and not magicians or experts, so reserve a seat and just come by. If you cannot join, please cancel your registration and enable somebody else to join.
This Meetup is hosted by Google Developers Group and Women Techmakers.

“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” — Arthur C Clarke
Well, machine learning can look like magic, but we don't need to be data scientists or ML researchers to develop with ML. So, what about making our solutions smarter without any knowledge of AI? In this session, we’ll see how to transform or extract information from text, image, audio & video with the latest ML APIs, how to train an AutoML custom model, and we’ll be active players of a live demo. Don't put your smartphone on airplane mode!

18:45 - 19:00 welcome
19:00 - Start Talk from Laurent
After that Questions, Apero, and networking
