  • Welcome: Zamira Jaupaj @Mobiquity
  • Speaker: Antje Barth Sr. Developer Advocate AI/ML @ AWS Natural Language Processing (NLP) is a field of artificial intelligence which focuses on the machines’ ability to read, understand and derive meaning from human languages. It is with no doubt one of the fields that has been studied for very long times, with research publications dating back to the early 1900’s. And fast-forwarding to 2020, we still experience ground-breaking NLP research with new language models emerging nearly on a monthly basis. In this session, we will introduce you to Amazon Comprehend, fully-managed NLP service, to find insights and relationships in text without any machine learning experience. Focus will be a short intro to NLP and then demo with Amazon Comprehend.
  • Speaker: Marcia Villalba Developer Advocate @AWS Making your website accessible can be hard, there is the need to create lots of extra content only for having an accessible site.

What if I told you that you could use artificial intelligence in order to create a lot of the content in different formats for making your site accessible? And that you don’t need to be a data scientist or have loads of data to start working on this problem. This talk its meant for any web developer that wants to leverage machine learning in their app and want to take some practical knowledge back to work, to start using it right away.

In this talk, want to show you how to build into your application accessibility features such as, describing an image and reading out-loud text, getting audio input as text, and others easily using machine learning tools.
