Deep neural networks have been responsible for major breakthroughs in speech recognition (Siri & Cortana), pattern recognition (self-driving cars), and machine learning (predicting NFL football scores). In this lively and informal session, Dr. James McCaffrey will explain exactly what deep neural networks are and how they work, without using Greek letters or annoying math jargon. You'll leave this session with a solid understanding of deep neural networks, know what they can and cannot do, and have all the information you need to effectively communicate with subject matter experts.
