Dane Sherburn, Software Developer, Thoughtworks
It turns out that it’s pretty easy to fool an AI system into thinking that an image of a cat is a delicious plate of guac. So why does AI sometimes make such silly mistakes? In this talk, we'll look at how AI works and discuss why getting them to operate as intended is surprisingly difficult. You'll learn:
(1) how neural networks learn to solve tasks
(2) that neural networks often learn to solve tasks very differently to how we learn to solve them (3) the implications of the fact that we learn to solve tasks differently; and
(4) techniques to make these models more interpretable and robust
The By Thoughtworks event tech-talk series is a community forum to share industry thinking about emerging technical trends, and -- as always -- inspire debate and conversation.
You’ll find an open, comfortable environment for technologists to meet and discuss recent developments in the tech world, projects that both inspire and challenge, and how to stay on top of the ever-shifting tech landscape.
We invite you to join our groups in your local city so you can be kept informed on upcoming events, happening every 6 weeks.
