Pigs in Space - or how to find aliens with AI

Data & AI

Can you find aliens?   How would you go about the search and what would you look for?  

With a real worked example in how to go about searching for aliens (really!)  and some insights into how the professionals are using AI to seek for some sign from their extra terrestrial  counter-parts this talk is  about how AI techniques, tools, frameworks and data are  getting closer to the point that non-experts (that’s me) can actually be dangerous. Learning about AI from the ground up is a challenge for newbies  but things are improving.  This session will show you how AI technologies are getting a little more pluggable and useable every day.  We may not end up finding those spacefaring muppets but then the  search is just beginning.
