This Friday (Oct 25th) the AI Seminar welcomes John Murphy, who will talk about Stream Technologies from noon to 1pm at room ETLC E2 001. Pizza around 11:45am. More information below.  

Abstract: Machine learning models, or Algorithm applications (Aapps), are designed to analyze pixels and spectral features combined with shape information to identify a particular target. The target could be a disease or fungus on a plant, the level of protein in a sample of seeds, nutrients in soil, a deformed object, cancer cells, or other things a business finds value in detecting. Stream Technologies has pioneered and specialized in developing multi-band convolutional neural nets that offer unprecedented accuracy over spatial analytics alone. Their experience in machine learning has grown into an offering (Stream.ML) that can enable the wider use of these technologies.

Bio: John Murphy is a graduate from the University of Alberta, is CEO and co-founder of Stream Technologies Inc., a startup in the photonics / analytics space. John has over 30 years of technology commercialization experience, including founding and growing multiple start-ups. He is active on several advisory boards, Chairman of nanocluster Alberta, is a local angel investor, and was on the founding board of the A100 Organization. John works from Stream Technologies' offices at the Advanced Technology Centre (ATC) in the Edmonton Research Park on the Southside of Edmonton. Through the collaboration and mentorship of John and others at ATC and the UofA, now over half of the Tech companies at the ATC are incorporating AI/ML into their solutions.


Though talks may be of a technical nature, seminars are open to all levels of experience including expert researchers and beginner enthusiasts!
