Conference on Computer Vision at Google Asia, Singapore

The deep learning algorithms and frameworks have changed the approach to computer vision entirely. With the recent development in computer vision with Convolutional Neural Networks such as Yolo, a new era has begun. It would open doors to new industries as well as personal applications.

After the successful bootcamps held at IIT Bombay, NUS Singapore, RV College of Engineering, etc, CloudxLab in collaboration with IoTSG and Google Asia conducted a successful conference on Understanding Computer Vision with AI using Tensorflow on May 11, 2019, at Google Asia, Singapore office.

The Venue

We were really honoured to conduct this weekend workshop at the Google Asia office at Singapore. We received a really overwhelming response from our circle of students and well wishers. The event was a huge success with almost more than 200 attendees.

The Speakers

The notable speakers who gave their insights on deep learning, machine learning and AI were

1. C.K Vishwakarma, CEO – AllThingsConnected, Founder – IoTSG

The mass of 200 people were welcomed to the event by the founder of IoTSG, Mr. CK Vishwakarma. He runs one of the largest IoT communities in South East Asia. CK gave a brief introduction to the whole event and how IoTSG is revolutionizing the ecosystem of IoT and AI.

2. Sandeep Giri, Founder, CloudxLab

Sandeep with more than 15+ years of experience in the industry was well received by the audience. He has been building products and churning large amounts of data for various product companies. Sandeep gave insights into the fundamentals of Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Gradient Descent and Back propagation. He also gave a demonstration on the AI based Cameraman.Please find the slides explaining the Auto-cameraman here.

3. Aurélien Géron – Founder, Kiwisoft

Aurélien is the author of the book “Hands-On Machine Learning with Scikit-Learn and Tensor Flow: Concepts, Tools, and Techniques to Build Intelligent Systems” which is one of the hot-selling and most sought after book on Deep Learning. We, at CloudxLab also use the same for preparing our content for training our learners on Machine Learning related technologies. Mr. Aurélien gave a detailed overview of the Computer Vision with AI.

4. Shixin Luo, Strategic Cloud Engineer, Google

Mr. Shixin is working into Machine Learning at Google, proficient in Predictive Modeling and Data Mining in large-scale distributed environment. He has published 3 conference papers and 4 patents in this field. Mr. Shixin gave a detailed talk on the major advancements in the Google Computing Platform(GCP).

Once the talks were completed, there was a detailed Q&A session with these thought leaders from the industry. The audience comprised of people from Singapore and nearby countries.
