Nov. 6, 2017 Machine Learning

On Nov. 6, 2017 The New York Times reporter Cade Metz wrote “The Rise Of The Machine: To Speed A.I. Advance, Technology Industry Aims To Edge Aside Humans.” Google’s Jeff Dean, Sundar Pichai and Barret Zopf talked about their machine learning algorithm software called AutoML that builds other algorithms. Self driving cars and facial recognition for security need this software. ¬†Unfortunately, only about 10,000 people worldwide have the experience to create such algorithms. Amazon, Facebook, Google and Microsoft are paying top dollar for big data experts and data scientists. “The shortage is not going away anytime soon, just because mastering these skills takes years of work.” Microsoft’s Joseph Sirosh said about developing neural networks “We are eliminating a lot of the heavy lifting.” Jean Gagne of Element AI says it is a new kind of computer programming. Berkeley’s Pieter Abbeel thinks that computer invented algorithms can solve many problems very quickly. Carnegie Mellon’s Renato Neghrino say it is only a matter of when.

Nov. 16, 2010 SVEC Open House

On Tuesday, November 16, 2010, the Silicon Valley Engineering Council (SVEC) held its Annual Open House Event In Santa Clara at the Biltmore Hotel. SVEC president Dr. KRS Murthy spoke about SVEC Educational Outreach Programs, Keeper of Flame Award and the 2010 Silicon Valley Engineering Hall of Fame Inductees Celeste Volz Ford of Stellar Solutions and Terry Shoup of ASME and SCU.

The keynote speaker was Dr. Ted Selker of Carnegie Mellon, Stanford, MIT and Xerox PARC. His talk was on “New technology business development”. He showed how our intentions could be understood and acted on by computers at work, home and in cars. He believes that innovation can be encouraged through competitions. The marketplace would then test winning ideas adopted by new technology companies.
