Rapidly develop and deploy your own machine learning applications

Friday 18th

from 12:55 to 13:35

Theatre 20



The Wolfram Language offers a wide array of algorithms and computational knowledge to aid in many computational areas including image processing and data analytics. Our all-in-one platform mentality allows you to develop and deploy without having to switch software, allowing for fast and efficient coding. Use our wealth of algorithms to produce simple to use interfaces and interactive content in just a few lines of code. An issue which is common among many programming languages is the discontinuity between libraries, which make it difficult to communicate across multiple subjects. Wolfram strives for consistency among all areas of computation to seamlessly move between libraries without even noticing. One of the fastest growing fields over the last few years is machine learning, but integrating this into your projects can be daunting to those who are not experts in the field. Using the Wolfram Language, this is not the case. Mathematica, our desktop application for executing the Wolfram Language, will be used to demonstrate our machine learning capabilities but it is also possible to use the Wolfram Cloud which runs entirely from the web browser, requiring no installation on your machine. The workshop will give you the minimum knowledge required to get you creating your own machine learning applications as quick as possible by briefly explaining the fundamentals of the Wolfram Language, leaving enough time to learn relevant techniques for the development of your projects. To begin with, you will be shown both simple examples followed by more complicated executions to give you an enriched view of the capabilities of our machine learning toolkit. ImageIdentify, one of our most successful microsites created solely using our Wolfram Cloud technology and the Wolfram Language, has been integrated as a standalone function which you can fully utilise within Mathematica, allowing you to create powerful APIs which can be integrated into your own software. You will be shown how to apply the ImageIdentify function in your code to create novel applications.

In this workshop you will:
* See interesting existing applications leveraging our Machine Learning functions
* Learn the fundamentals of the Wolfram Language to provide you with a basic toolset that can be applied across various domains
* Learn how to quickly and easily create classifiers and predictors
* Test and improve the accuracy of your machine learning functions
* Integrate ImageIdentify into your own code; for example creating your own security system
* Combine machine learning functions with data mining techniques to get the most out of your data
