Talk Title: Artificial Intelligence and Future of the Internet

Big processors and lightning-fast internet mean AI units can handle the variety, velocity, and volume of big data and translate it into something useful. Back in 2002, training an ANN on 3000 sentences took 3 weeks on an advanced, in-house Sun computer. The exponential growth of AI in recent years is down to the rise of PaaS in other words, companies such as Google, Amazon and Microsoft have made their powerful hardware available to the masses. Where is this processing power? In the cloud! So to make use of it we have to send all our data to these online systems.

Hear from Chris Gregory speaking about the nbn and Dr. John Flackett speaking about Artificial Intelligence. Don't miss this opportunity to hear from inspiring speakers and gain some insights into the future of business online.
