主讲人：Kai Hwang （黄铠）University of Southern California
Abstract:In this talk, Dr. Hwang addresses the pervasive use of big-data analytics on smart clouds, social networks, intelligent robots, and IoT platforms. He will assess machine/deep learning models and available software tools to advance the cognitive service industry represented by Google, Apple, Nvidia, Baidu, Intel, and IBM, Huawei, etc. The ultimate goal is to achieve enhanced agility, mobility, security, and scalability of public clouds, IoT platforms, and popular social-media networks.
His talk assessescurrent AI programs and brain projects pursued by high-tech companies, including Google X-Lab, TensorFlow, DeepMind AlphaGo, Nvidia Digits 5 for using GPU in deep learning, IBM neuromorphic computer, and CAS/ICT Camericon project, etc. Some hidden R/D opportunities are revealed for building smart macine，delivery drones, self-drivng cars, blockchains, AR/VR gears, and mobile cloud of everythings.
