Lunch & Learn: Machine Learning Techniques

October 5, 2017 • Written by

Machine Learning - HaiderHaving a conversation with a machine is no longer a figment of our imagination or science fiction. We are having intelligent conversations with machines every day. AI (Artificial Intelligence) or Machine Learning techniques have made this reality possible.

The personal assistant in your smartphone, video games, and the marketing industry have been all using Machine Learning to analyze and predict the actions of their clients for a long time now. The ultimate goal of machine learning is to predict something based on pre-existing conditions. Sometimes this prediction is as easy as answering a question with yes or no, but sometimes the prediction could be as complicated as identifying the model and manufacturer of an airplane flying 36,000 feet above our heads.

New Media ManitobaRed River College and The Ace Project Space are happy to present this informative Lunch+Learn that will try to explain some of the techniques used in machine learning.

XM: Extreme MEVA

MEVA LogoWe are electrified to welcome the Manitoba Electric Vehicle Association (MEVA) as proud sponsor and participant in the WINNISPEED Agile/Scrum Extreme Manufacturing (XM) workshops with Joe Justice on June 10 and 11.

It’s gas! No, it’s electric!

It’s both. The Awsomeness Factor of Agile/Scrum is only part of the WINNISPEED attraction. Because the car we are building with Joe is completely modular, MEVA is intrigued at the prospect of swapping the gas engine module for an electric one. How agile is that?.

We are delighted to welcome CIC as a Friend of WINNISPEED. The Composites Innovation Centre is a not-for-profit Manitoba corporation that is jointly sponsored by private industry and government. Its mandate is to support and stimulate economic growth through innovative research, development and application of composite materials and technologies for manufacturing industries.

“CIC is excited to be part of WINNISPEED’s broader mission related to solving problems for social good. If composites can assist with that in terms of being ‘greener’ or leaving less carbon footprint in terms of manufacturing processes than that’s what we are all about.”
