  • Title: AI for Software Testing
  • Abstract: AI will fundamentally transform software testing. Testers make quick judgments based on data. AI makes even quicker judgments based on far more data. No area of software testing will be left unchanged by AI. In this presentation, Jason demonstrates how AI is directly applicable to all aspects of testing: functional regression automation, exploratory testing, test data generation, performance, and even qualitative measures of quality such as trustworthiness, usability, and more. Jason applies neural networks, reinforcement learning, and clustering to testing problems and shares the methods and results. Jason also discusses how AI makes test artifacts reusable, and how this will change software testing forever. Join and see the future of software testing powered by AI.

  • Title: Uber Cadence: Fault Tolerant Actor Framework
  • Abstract:The actor model is a popular architecture for building large-scale distributed applications. Cadence extends this model with the ability to preserve an actor state, including its threads of control and local variables. Such fault-tolerant actors are not linked to any particular hosts and can be used to implement long-running business processes in a reliable and scalable manner. This talk presents the Cadence programming model with Java examples, as well as an overview of its deployment topology and recovery algorithm.

  • Date: 10/18/2018, 9:00-10:00am PDT
  • Title: Distributed Machine Learning services and Android
  • Abstract:Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence represent an exciting opportunity for all of us to stop working on repetitive tasks, to improve the velocity and precision of data analysis, and to get an insight on complex and simple problems of everyday life.
    How many times did you find yourself hungry around the city struggling to find a restaurant that matches your foodie preferences? How tired are you about setting your food preferences in apps that are supposed to help you when starving?
    Using ML and AI, and consuming the data feed exposed on various social media, is possible to automatically generate a model to describe the food preferences of any user at any time. With such model, it is possible to provide contextual recommendations that matter to a foodie.
  • What will I learn:
    During this session, you will learn how to define, build, train, and deploy a machine learning model on the Amazon SageMaker infrastructure, how to feed the model with the data that come from a user social media accounts, and how to consume the SageMaker endpoints and display the food recommendations in an Android app.
