My Journey into Artificial Intelligence by Blessing Malumi

The buzzword in recent times has been AI, what is AI? how can I learn AI? What is the usefulness of AI? How would it impact my business? Why should I learn AI? The questions just keep coming. This talk is supposed to present in practical terms how a young African girl got her start in AI, the journey so far, where she is now, and the possibilities of a future in AI.

It will also explain in details, the resources and materials she utilized in her learning with Python being the most resourceful, it will explain python's many functionalities and tools which she has found and used, most especially in it's application to data science and artificial intelligence, projects she has worked on, of which an image classifier was one of them. She would also talk about the mistakes she made, the successes she attained, the lessons she learned and finally the BIG PICTURE of her AI dream.
