“Deep Learning: The Broadest and Deepest Set of Capabilities”

In the presentation I cover the art of the possible in AI and Machine Learning on Amazon Web Services (AWS) with a focus on deep learning ("DL") and the endless capabilities provided by the Amazon Partner Network. Amazon's SageMaker, the industry-leading platform for training and deploying machine learning at scale, is at the heart of this innovation boom.

Deep Learning is far more than a subset of Artificial Intelligence: it's a fundamental breakthrough in software engineering. Because prediction is the essential aspect of decision making DL is pervasive and applied DL is thriving in every industry from finance & services to energy & mining, media & entertainment to property & construction, and of course all things digital.

This presentation is for Entrepreneurs, Executives, Innovators, Inventors, Enthusiasts, Experts in Applied AI, AI, Artificial Intelligence, Deep Learning, Machine Learning, Data Science, Cognitive Analytics, you name it. Deep learning is the secret weapon of the A-team of every team.
