Does AI Recognize Me? | March 18th 1:00 PM
Presented by Emory University
Silicon Valley dominates AI tech like voice and face recognition. We use these daily, but do they work for everyone – or you? The less you are like the technology creators, the less likely these technologies will work for you. This workshop will show you how to make the technology work for you, and will give you a kick start by teaching you many of the important ideas. You will get hands-on experience training AI to recognize your voice and face.
