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 of machine learning and Core ML, how to implement IBM Watson with Core ML, and techniques for continuous learning and model training. Additionally, we’ll cover the benefits of using machine learning locally and what’s in store for the future.

If you’re not familiar, AltConf is a “community-driven and supported event, held in downtown San Jose alongside Apple’s WWDC.” Admission is free, so if you’re in the area and/or attending WWDC, please stop by and give me any feedback! Once the videos are posted, I’ll share the link.
