This Thursday's Matter is ... Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs). This week we are joined by IBM Developer Advocate Matthew Hamilton who will be discussing GANS, a generative machine learning model that creates new data instances in the vein of your training data (for example, a common use for GANs is to fill in or create new data in an image).
Thursday's Matter is a virtual meetup on the topics that truly matter to today's developers. Join us every Thursday when we'll be joined by an expert from around the globe. Each week we'll explore topics such as functional languages, mobile development, agile methodologies and machine learning.
THE FORMAT A 40-minute expert talk followed by a Q&A session
In this talk Matt will guide you through a specific type of A.I. He will introduce the concept of Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) and how they can be used for both fun and serious tasks. You will learn what a GAN is, and how they work.
Matthew is a Developer Advocate, Software Developer, and Software Engineer working for IBM based in Bristol, UK. His areas of interest are machine learning, AI, blockchain and fintech. In his spare time Matthew tinkers with motorbikes, vans, Arduinos and Cryptocurrencies.
