Wednesday Keynote: The Future of AI in Scala, and on the JVM

8th June 2015 in Amsterdam at Beurs van Berlage

This SkillsCast was filmed at Scala Days 2015 - Amsterdam

This session was not filmed.

AI, and deep learning in particular, has made huge advances in both accuracy and speed in recent years, breaking record after record in classifying a range of datatypes, including images, sound, time series and text.

Deep learning is essentially machine perception, recognizing patterns in sensory data. With time, it will be implemented more and more on the edge, in low-memory devices in handsets, automobiles and other devices. Scala's speed and versatility put it in a position to dominate numerical computing and therefore AI. The Scala ecosystem, which includes some of the fastest distributed run-times, makes it easy to process the computationally intensive operations that AI requires quickly. So the future of AI on Scala is very fast (real-time streaming data processing). With the JVM, it is also ubiquitous, ranging from Linux servers, to Windows and OSX desktops, to Android phones.
