Machine Learning and Computer Vision

The uses of Machine Learning (ML) and Computer Vision (CV) are exploding. IBM’s Watson defeated a top player at Jeopardy. Google’s DeepMind system has defeated some of the world’s best players in Go and StarCraft II. Amazon is currently testing a store that will allow customers to shop and exit without stopping to check-out. Google, Uber, Tesla, and many others are improving and deploying machine learning models for self-driving cars.

These applications use ML and CV. The future is bright for all who understand and can apply these state-of-the-art technologies.

For one week this summer, the University of Arkansas at Little Rock and its Department of Computer Science are hosting an ML and CV summer day camp for teachers of High School Computer Science. Teachers attending will receive 15 hours of professional development credit. The camp will explore some of the building blocks of ML and CV systems. Participants will build ML and CV applications to solve real-world problems and upon completion receive a Computer Vision certificate from Nvidia.

 

The camp will be held June 10-14; 8:30am – 12:00pm
