About

Co-design a focused AI workshop for your team and your projects. We will work with you to support your team on their AI adoption journey.

Below is a list of topics that we can build upon.

Topics
Text processing
About

Also called "Natural language processing (NLP)", this is a technique for getting computers to work with and understand text.

Text processing example
Key Applications
More examples from recent research
Model interpretability
About

Also referred to as "explainability", this is the general approach of working to understand why a model made a certain decision.

Model interpretability example
Key Applications
  • Debugging a model while developing it,
  • explaining model decisions to end-users,
  • and, understanding and correcting dataset biases.

More examples from recent research
Model compression
About

The business of taking large models and making them run efficiently on mobile devices or other "embedded" hardware.

Computer vision
About

The field of learning from images and videos. For most of us, our experience of the world is strongly visual so there is an almost endless supply of data and information in this area.

Computer vision example
Key Applications

This is a rich area, with many applications.

☕ About Your Instructors

During the workshop you will be working with Noon and Ruth.

Noon van der Silk is the founder of Braneshop and lead trainer.

Noon has 18+ years experience in various forms of software engineering, application development, and the design and implementation of machine learning + AI systems. Within AI he has a special interest in the field of computer vision and interactive art.

Noon has a research background, obtaining a Masters in Pure Mathematics, with a focus on quantum computing.

Noon is particularly passionate about empowering people through skill development.

Dr Ruth Pearson is a trainer and mentor.

Ruth has a cosmic-microwave-background in physics, with a PhD in cosmology, along with academic experience in Europe, U.S.A. and Australia. She loves maths, science and cats and wants to use AI to aid vet medicine.

As a teacher, Ruth is particularly interested in helping people to gain a deep, complete, and enjoyable understanding of concepts.
