Keynote Speaker

Spoke on Deep Learning for browsers. Was one of the panelist among the leaders like country head of Google and Amazon.

ConvNetJS brings deep neural networks to your browser. It's easy to use and fast without using a GPU, which means it works almost anywhere. This is a project created at Stanford, in an effort to make neural networks more accessible. No GPUs are used to make things go faster but the raw JavaScript seems to do the job very well. This is another example of how the ever increasing performance of JavaScript is making new things possible.
