Natural Language Processing is a field of AI that aims at understanding and generating human language. Launched in the 50s, it has recently boomed thanks to the availability of large datasets and (deep) learning algorithms to train models, as well as to the popularity of intelligent search and conversational assistants like Siri or Alexa. This talk will feature the main intuitions behind Natural Language Processing and its concrete applications of today.
The term “serverless” has become a trendy buzzword: if you don’t have the checkbox ticked, you’re not cool anymore. Really? Spoiler alert: There may be servers involved in serverless solutions. It’s not just about function-as-a-service. And it’s actually more complicated than it may seem! But first, let’s come back to the basics: what is serverless exactly, where does it come from, what are its characteristics? Then, beyond the definition, we’ll discuss the challenges, and the risks associated with serverless architectures. Eventually, going further, we’ll think about where serverless is heading in the near future.
This talk explores Clifford's experience as a Boeing 787 Dreamliner Pilot and the critical decision management skills required therein. As an Airline pilot, you may be required to make a decision often quickly to react to a situation as it presents itself and you will discover a way to achieve this called TDODAR. This model ensures that you achieve a safe outcome for all on board and Clifford often finds himself using the same model when facing a problem whilst wearing his Dev hat and it's yet to fail him.
