Turning Point and Monash at Google

July 31, 2019

Turning Point colleague, Sam Campbell, and I went to the Google AI Impact Challenge Accelerator event in London on 29th-31st July (see the video here, I get a brief shots at 0:14 and 0:20 and Sam gets an interview at 0:49).  It was an in depth technology review so we could help design our system.  We had a number of very clued-in Google experts supporting us in designing our architecture.  My systems and internet applications experience is over 20 years old, so I get the general ideas but don’t know the modern specifics!

Lots the of AI Impact folks from Google attended and we all agreed the committment and support from Google was fabulous.  We’re in the top right, with Sam holding the “Turning Point” sign, me below him.

Southeast Asia Machine Learning School

July 9, 2019

Very fortunate to be asked to give a lecture on “Foundations of Supervised Learning” at SEA-MLS in Jakarta on 8th July.  The school was co-organised by Google, so opening talk by Google and a member of the Indonesian government.  A big crowd too!  Everyones slides are up on the schedule page.

Never been to Jakarta so an exciting opportunity meet some colleagues, some students, in a lovely environment. Monash has a school at Malaysia so a few Malaysia Monash folks turned up too.  Here we are after my lecture.
