Incorporating Artificial Intelligence
Location: Portland 256
This is a joint proposal by Animesh Singh and Svetlana Levitan. Given a growing demand for fairness, accountability, and transparency from machine learning (ML) systems, we leverage open source projects to build an ML pipeline that is open, secure and fair, and that fully integrates into the AI lifecycle.

Ellen Korbes (garden.io)
Studying neural networks is a surefire way to end up fighting more math than you can shake a stick at. Wish you could learn about the likes of gradient descent and backpropagation in a language you actually understand—like Go? Then this one is for you. Code, not math! Algorithms, not logarithms!
