Cloud Machine Learning APIs for fun and profit with Harry Potter by Yufeng Guo

The entranceways to the dorms at Hogwarts were guarded by paintings that talked and asked for passwords. In this talk, see a real-world Harry Potter style personal ‘security’ system that can understand spoken passwords and see the people and objects that wish to gain entrance. Learn about how machine learning APIs will enable the next generation of smart devices, and explore other applications of machine learning in the real-world, both in present and in the future.
