In this episode you'll learn about the first ever Intel student ambassador forum, how Intel is helping deliver ‘Real-Time AI’ in Microsoft’s new accelerated deep learning platform and we announce the winners of Intel’s Kaggle competition!

Hi. I'm David Shaw and welcome AI News. In this episode, we will cover the first ever Intel student ambassador forum, learn how Intel is helping deliver real-time AI in Microsoft's new Accelerated Deep Learning Program, and lastly, the outcome of Intel's Kaggle Competition. Make sure to check out the links provided to learn more. 


The Intel student ambassadors recently held two student run forums. One in New York and one in Hawaii. During these events, they give technical presentations of their work and research. Student ambassador Pallab Paul of Rutgers University showcased his early innovation project at the forum in New York. Pallab and his team are working on an app that men can use to find the right hair and facial hairstyles based on their face shape. 

He used Intel's OpenCV library, Haar Cascades classifiers, and Intel optimized TensorFlow, Java, and Python on Intel Xeon Phi cluster to create a neural network to train their data set to give accurate results. 

At the forum in Hawaii, multiple universities and hundreds of people attended to collaborate on projects, discuss industry trends, and learn what to expect in the next generation of AI. Check out the Intel Developer Mesh to learn more about the student projects. 

Next, Microsoft has selected Intel Stratix 10 FPGAs as a key hardware accelerator in its new deep learning platform, codenamed Project Brainwave. Today, systems are often required to process live data streams like video and rapidly deliver the data back to users. The Project Brainwave is capable of delivering this real time AI, and with the help of Intel's AI technologies, will allow cloud infrastructure to process and transmit data as fast as it comes in. 

The Intel MobileODT Cervical Cancer Screening Kaggle competition is done and the winner was just announced. This competition challenged participants to use AI to develop an algorithm that accurately identifies cervix types. This can help prevent ineffectual treatments and allow health care providers to offer correct referrals for cases requiring more advanced treatment. 

Thank you to all who participated and congratulations to all the winners. Don't forget to like this video and subscribe to the Intel Software YouTube channel and follow the links provided to learn more about what's new in AI.
