Masterclass by startup Pixoneye

“Artificial Intelligence”, “Machine Learning“ and “Deep Learning” have been a few of the biggest buzzwords in the hi-tech industry in recent years. “We use machine learning / deep learning technologies to do X” is a common selling point of both new up-and-coming startups and established corporations alike.

So what is machine learning? How does it work? How does it relate to AI? And where does Deep Learning come in?

In this talk we’ll try to answer these questions and offer some insights about how all of this works behind the scenes.

Pixoneye offers mobile application owners in-depth understanding of their user bases. And as you might have guessed, we use machine learning to do it.
