Video: Machine Learning on iOS, Integrating IBM Watson with Core ML at AltConf

Earlier this year I attended AltConf in San Jose, a community-driven and supported event held alongside Apple’s WWDC. IBM sponsored the event and offered numerous workshops to attendees. In addition to assisting with the workshops and manning the booth, I had a talk accepted on Machine Learning on iOS: Integrating IBM Watson with Core ML. Here’s the recording of the talk I gave with Devin Conley, IBM’s lead engineer on the project: The first half of the session I presented

Altconf 2018 – Machine Learning on iOS: Integrating IBM Watson with Core ML

This Wednesday I’ll be speaking at AltConf on Machine Learning on iOS: Integrating IBM Watson with Core ML. Here’s the abstract I submitted: Apple recently announced a partnership with IBM to integrate Core ML with Watson, allowing visual recognition to run locally on iOS devices. The ability to use machine learning while offline opens up a wide range of applications and use cases. Geared toward beginners (both in Swift and machine learning), this session will focus on providing an overview

Ruby Hoedown conference

I attended the Ruby Hoedown this past Friday through Saturday in Raleigh, NC. Chad Fowler has a nice summary of the event on his blog so I won’t go into details. I do want to mention how much I love smaller, focused conferences. With a very small team of organizers (Nathanial Talbott and Jeremy McAnally), the Ruby Hoedown was a nice blend of high level, big thought talks with some technical ones. It’s a nice balance for a day and

SXSW: Using RSS for Marketing

Since Using RSS for Marketing was the panel I moderated, I don’t have any actual live notes. As a 10am Sunday morning panel, I was worried no one would be in the room due to the daylight savings time change (and the late night partying). I was relieved to see we had a packed room by the time the panel started. The panel went quite well in my opinion as we accomplished my goal of covering the topics we laid

SXSW: Recap

Another great SXSW conference wrapped up last week and I’m finally getting a chance to transfer some of my notes to the blog. So beware, the next few posts will mostly be SXSW recaps! Once again, I’m glad I attended this year. I truly believe this is a must attend event for anyone in this industry. If you’re involved with anything related to the web, design, technology, or entrepreneurship in this space it’s the best conference to attend each year.

Arrived in Austin at SXSW

Just like last year, I’m not sure how much real-time blogging of the SXSW conference I’ll actually be doing. I’ll probably end up twittering most of it and then taking notes on good old fashioned notepads. I’ll then transcribe some of the most useful of those notes into posts on SXSW later. If you’re here for SXSW, check out the panel I’m moderating Sunday morning at 10am, Using RSS for Marketing. Technorati Tags: sxsw

SXSW Interactive Panel Discussion

As I previously mentioned here on my blog, I have a panel at this year’s SXSW Interactive Conference in Austin, Texas. One of the panelists, Emily Chang, has posted an invitation on her blog today for feedback and insights into RSS and using RSS for marketing to help shape the discussion of our panel. Please visit her post and add your thoughts (even if you can’t attend this year). One of the ideas I’m specifically interested in hearing about is

eduWeb Conference recap

I just wanted to provide a quick summary of the eduWeb Conference last week in Baltimore where I presented on “Using RSS for Marketing”. The presentation went well and there was a nice crowd of conference-goers interested in using RSS for marketing especially in higher education. From what I saw, the conference was set up well including the division of topics into three tracks – marketing, development, and marketing/development. A full list of the sessions can be found here. Unfortunately,
