Machine learning is everywhere, but how easy is it to get started? Could your small project benefit from some simple ML? In this talk, we will cover the very basics of artificial intelligence, as well as learn a Python-free approach to big data, basic algorithms, and how easy all of this is to implement in your average shopping cart with a single Node.js file.
What if the value of every good or service was formally recognized as a million-element heterogeneous vector instead of a single scalar ironically dubbed the “price?” In this blue sky talk, I propose a way to leverage augmented reality, machine learning, computer vision, and MMO game design to deliver a wholesale replacement for our current system of commerce.
I'd love to talk about what it's like to build an early stage product with an outsourced team, both the pros and cons. First with a team in China, then in the Ukraine with a CTO here, then solely with a team in the Ukraine + NYC. Learnings that can be applied to teams big and small, especially in the early stages of a product.
This talk is about the concept of "cross-platform rendering," where one set of view-layer primitives can be used as abstractions to render across different platforms' view-APIs. "Web? iOS & Android? TV!? All with one 'effin set of templates?" Youbetcha. This talk will focus on how React Native is used for cross-platform development, and cover some of the prominent technologies and challenges involved in making "Universal" React Native apps for web and mobile.
