PYPTUG Monthly Meeting "Meet Eliza" April 25th 2017

Come join PYPTUG at out next monthly meeting (April 25th 2017) to learn more about the Python programming language, modules and tools. Python is the perfect language to learn if you've never programmed before, and at the other end, it is also the perfect tool that no expert would do without. Monthly meetings are in addition to our project nights.


Meeting will start at 6:00pm.

We will open on an Intro to PYPTUG and on how to get started with Python, PYPTUG activities and members projects, then on to News from the community.

Main Talk: "Meet Eliza"

by Francois Dion, Data Scientist, Inmar Inc.


When I was a child, I spoke with Eliza at a science museum, and everything changed from that moment on. Who was Eliza? Perhaps you haven't heard of Eliza. You will be able to meet Dr. Eliza and exchange some thoughts with her.

After meeting Eliza, we will discuss Artificial Intelligence. Ever wondered what it means? Can you trust AI? If AI can make works of art? Poems? What about legal ramifications? Should I confide in Siri or Cortana? What does an artificial neuron look like? Do androids dream of electric sheep? If you've asked yourself one of these questions, then you'll be glad to attend this presentation and discussion. 

And since this is a discussion, you'll be able to ask questions, to participate, to voice your opinion.

Lightning talks! 

We will have some time for extemporaneous "lightning talks" of 5-10 minute duration. If you'd like to do one, some suggestions of talks were provided here, if you are looking for inspiration. Or talk about a project you are working on.
Some are already lined up.
