Deep Learning & Traditional Computation Better Together
Deep learning is big news at the moment, but it’s not the only game in town. Wolfram has spent 30 years unifying the full breadth of computation from modelling to statistics and from social network analysis to machine learning. This talk will explain how a combination of approaches can reveal insights that a single approach cannot access. Examples will be taken from several business contexts and multiple domains of data.

Described as “The Computation Company”, the Wolfram group are world leaders in integrated technology for computation, data science and AI including machine learning. With over 25 years of experience working with Wolfram Technologies, Jon has helped in directing software development, system design, technical marketing, corporate policy, business strategies and much more. Jon gives regular keynote appearances and media interviews on topics such as the Future of AI, Enterprise Computation Strategies and Education Reform, across multiple fields including healthcare, fintech and data science. He holds a degree in mathematics from the University of Durham. Jon is also Co-founder and Director of Development for computerbasedmath.org, an organisation dedicated to a fundamental reform of maths education and the introduction of computational thinking. The movement is now a worldwide force in re-engineering the STEM curriculum with early projects in Estonia, Sweden and Africa.
