Sunum: Developing Neural Networks Using Visual Studio

A neural network is an artificial intelligence technique that is based on biological synapses and neurons. Neural networks can be used to solve difficult or impossible problems such as predicting which team will win the Super Bowl or whether a company’s stock price will go up or down. In a short and informal session, Dr. James McCaffrey, from Microsoft Research in Redmond, WA, will describe exactly what neural networks are, explain the types of problems that can be solved using neural networks, and demonstrate how to create neural networks from scratch using Visual Studio. You will leave this session with an in-depth understanding of neural networks and get some early information about a related, soon-to-be-released Microsoft product.
