ENVISION – https://www.letsenvision.com/ Envision AI empowers blind and low vision people to be independent by speaking out the visual world in front of them. It is a smartphone app that uses artificial intelligence to read all kinds of text from any surface, recognise faces, describe scenes, find objects, scan barcodes, detect colours and so much more. It is the best all-in-one tool in the pocket of a blind or low vision user for all of their visual recognition tasks. #doinggooddoingbusiness, #impactcity, #TheHague, #impactentrpreneur, #envisionglasses
Online Lecture Series, Techfest, IIT Bombay is back with another highly inspiring leader, Andrew Ng! When it comes to rising fields like machine learning, artificial intelligence and computer vision, Andrew Yan-Tak Ng is one of the names you hear first. Being the co-founder of Coursera and deeplearning.ai, he has taught millions of eager learners worldwide through his online courses. He is also the mastermind behind Google Brain, a deep learning research team at Google which combines open-ended machine learning research with information systems and large-scale computing resources. Professor of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering at Stanford University, he has undertaken several research projects related to data mining and machine learning. His work has earned him several awards and he has gifted the world of technology with hundreds of his published papers. Watch Prof. Andrew Ng talk about his life journey and experience, the future of AI and it’s impact on the society! . This is a recorded lecture being streamed live . . .

Karthik Mahadevan was born in India and he is passionate about designing tools that empower people. Currently building Envision, a tool for the visually impaired to live more independently. Envision uses artificial intelligence to read all kinds of text from any surface, recognise faces, describe scenes, find objects, scan barcodes, detect colours and so much more. It is the best all-in-one tool in the pocket of a blind or low vision user for all of their visual recognition tasks. 🌍Over the past year, Envision has organically grown to thousands of paying subscribers around the world. 🏆Envision is also the winner of Google Play Award 2019 and was nominated for AppleVis Hall of Fame 2019. 🕶 Envision is now bringing its software to smartglasses. This provides visually impaired users with an even more unobtrusive and hands-free way to get things done.

This presentation took place at the Deep Learning Summit in San Francisco on 29-30 January 2015. https://www.re-work.co/events/deep-learning-sanfrancisco-2015 The elusive quest to identify and place skilled professionals has become an obsession in the talent wars of the tech industry (not to mention in schools from K though Postdoc). We will discuss the concept of continuous passive predictive (formative) assessment, applied to both learners and professionals, from kindergärtners to (future) CEOs. Building cognitive models using unstructured data and ubiquitous sensors allows the assessment not only of concept mastery, but meta-learning development as well (e.g., “Grit” and “Social-Emotional Intelligence”). Such models can then be used to predict which content will be an effective learning experience for a given learner. In massive courses, from large college lectures to MOOCs, the models can identify ad hoc cohorts for collaborative learning. Dr. Vivienne Ming is a theoretical neuroscientist, technologist and entrepreneur. She is the co-founder and Managing Partner of Socos, a cutting-edge EdTech company which applies cognitive modeling to align education with life outcomes. Previously, Dr. Ming was Chief Scientist at Gild, an innovative startup that builds better companies by unleashing human potential in their workforce using machine learning. She is a visiting scholar at UC Berkeley’s Redwood Center for Theoretical Neuroscience pursuing her research in cognitive prosthetics. Dr. Ming also explores augmented cognition using technology like Google Glass and has been developing predictive models of diabetes and bipolar disorder. Her work and research has received extensive media attention including the New York Times, NPR, Nature, [More]
