Next In Tech: Artificial Intelligence Applied to Gaming

October 09, 2018, 11:30 AM - 11:45 AM

AGA Innovation Lab - Booth 5833
Billionaire Mark Cuban has said that the world's first trillionaire will be an entrepreneur who harnesses deep neural artificial intelligence. And nobody is arguing he's wrong. Deep neural networks have been responsible for breakthroughs in speech recognition (Siri & Cortana), pattern recognition (self-driving cars), and genomics (DNA sequencing). With the repeal of PASPA, deep neural systems are on the verge of disrupting sports wagering with similar massive impact. In this lively, informal, but informative session, Dr. James McCaffrey from Microsoft Research will explain exactly what deep neural networks are and how they work, without using Greek letters or annoying math jargon. You'll leave this session with a solid understanding of deep neural networks, know what they can and cannot do, gain insights into leading edge efforts applied to sports betting, and have all the information you need to identify new business opportunities and communicate with subject matter experts.
