Bootcamp Description
Everything we have learnt in software development is undergoing change. Thanks to the advent of AI and Machine Learning. Thousands of job go unfilled at various companies as they can’t find qualified engineers who know machine learning. TiE’s one day bootcamp will set you on the right path. This is one investment in your career you can’t afford to miss. Whether you are starting out or want to manage a team of machine learning experts, here is your chance to take just one day from your schedule and walk with real hands on experience with machine learning concepts. Most workshops of this magnitude cost in excess of $1500 but at TiE, our goal is not to make money off this. Our vision is to help members get educated to continue to thrive in their entrepreneurial endeavors.

What is machine learning? What kinds of problems can it solve? Experts from Stanford University, Industry leaders, Google Certified Data Engineers and Data Scientists will educate the attendees with history of AI evolution to the machine learning and artificial intelligence capabilities on public cloud platforms. Through a combination of presentations, discussions, demos, and hands-on labs, participants will get an overview of the deep learning models, Open Source technologies, data processing, ML and AI capabilities. We will end with a recognition of the ease, flexibility, and power of machine learning. Do not worry if you are not deeply technical you will still get a lot out of the whole session as we backup every technical aspect with real life use cases.

After this workshop you will be able to work with Machine learning models and understand the ML journey. Additionally you will learning on creating a chatbot from scratch and deploy it on Google Cloud, Amazon Alexa and Facebook Messenger. We will walk you through Chatbot fundamentals, Natural Language Understanding basics, Intent Classification and how to create your custom classifiers using DialogFlow and Amazon Lex.

Additionally the participants can expect the following takeaways from bootcamp:

  1. Gain a broad perspective on machine learning and where it can be used
  2. Formulate a business use case for how it can be driven by machine learning
  3. Leverage Google Cloud Platform tools (Prebuilt ML models:Vision API,Natural Language Processing API,Prediction API,Translation API,etc.,) and environment (Cloud ML Engine,TensorFlow) to do machine learning

This bootcamp is intended for the following:

  1. Data Engineers and programmers interested in learning how to apply machine learning in practice
  2. Executive and mid executive level decision makers who are interested in learning how to leverage machine learning in their enterprise. Learn how to utilize actual use cases for ideas and learn about frameworks and challenges on implementing them

What to bring

1. Laptop for the hands-on labs
2. Photo ID for verification
