AI•ON LAUNCH PARTY & SVAI Holiday Gathering
This month, we're celebrating Francois Chollet's new project AI•ON, with a launch party at SVAI's new HQ. Francois will introduce his new project and talk about the vision behind it, and will be available for one one one discussions afterwards. This event is an informal Holiday Gathering and Open House style gathering.
We're excited to welcome you to our new location in Hillsborough.
Are you doing amazing AI research and need someplace big and quiet to live / work? Move in with us. We have 6 bedrooms available, and a growing crowd of wonderful people.
Francois is the founder of Keras, a minimalist, highly modular neural networks library, written in Python and capable of running on top of either TensorFlow or Theano. It was developed with a focus on enabling fast experimentation. In this episode, François discusses the state of deep learning, and explains why the field is experiencing a cambrian explosion that eventually may taper off. He explains the need for Keras and why its simplicity and ease makes it a useful deep learning library for developers to experiment and build with.
François Chollet is the author of Keras and the founder of Wysp, learning platform for artists. He currently works for Google as a deep learning engineer and researcher. Here's an interview with Francois from about a year ago: https://dev.to/sedaily/deep-learning-and-keras-with-franois-chollet.
