EU Innovation Kitchen

Theme: Artificial Intelligence

Europe is home to many innovative start-ups and SMEs, yet few succeed to scale up and become global leaders. Public policy and funding need to fill the gaps in the existing support schemes and cover each stage of the innovation chain – from idea to market deployment – and scale-up. This workshop aims to provide inspiration and 'cooking advice' to top-class innovators, entrepreneurs, small companies, universities and scientists with bright ideas and the ambition to scale up internationally with the support of the European Commission. We will be discussing together with companies funded by such programmes what's in the menu, how Horizon 2020 provides funding, advice and networking opportunities for the next generation of software, hardware, AI or other cutting-edge technologies and how you can cook best: alone (single company projects) or with company (collaborative schemes).

Compilers: the role they play in accelerating machine learning development & how you can extend them

Developers solve problems, but for the vast majority of problems that developers solve, compilers are at the heart of them. They're responsible for bringing technology to the masses, not just the few that understand the low-level lingo of the hardware. This has been true for technology for decades, and we're seeing a trend emerge: all sorts of next generation technologies are also made orders of magnitude more accessible when they're baked right into the compiler. In this workshop, you'll learn about a brand new deep learning "framework" called Swift for TensorFlow, which is a new take on how machine learning and programming languages should work together. At the same time, you'll also learn how you can create your own compiler extensions and have LLVM do what you want it to at compile-time.

Next-generation technologies: developers to users and developers to developers

Theme: Artificial Intelligence

Machine learning technology is helping make the lives of millions worldwide simpler, safer, more enjoyable, and overall better. Developers are at the heart of this change in how we use technology. However, there are some fields where this technology makes more impact than others, and my passion lies in, and I think it makes most sense to apply this technology in healthcare, education, and development! In my keynote, I'll be showcasing and demoing a few of my projects in these fields. Particularly, I'd like to show off the flexibility of machine learning, and how developers can not only apply it to create better applications, but to make their own lives easier as well.

During the daily project business, Stephan started to help customers onboard in O365 & Azure. Therefore, he already did some relatively large hybrid Office 365 infrastructure designs and Azure hybrid architectures. In the past, Stephan also did a few O365 tenant to tenant migrations, which was a quite new topic.
Stephan's new passion, however, is Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the complete Microsoft AI ecosystem. This is why he is trying to put as much intelligence in form of Cognitive Services and Azure Bot Services into business services like Office 365 and others to make it even better and smarter.
Since April 2018, Stephan is also awarded as a Microsoft MVP for Artifical Intelligence, due to his contributions in this specific area.

EU Innovation Kitchen

Theme: Artificial Intelligence

Europe is home to many innovative start-ups and SMEs, yet few succeed to scale up and become global leaders. Public policy and funding need to fill the gaps in the existing support schemes and cover each stage of the innovation chain – from idea to market deployment – and scale-up. This workshop aims to provide inspiration and 'cooking advice' to top-class innovators, entrepreneurs, small companies, universities and scientists with bright ideas and the ambition to scale up internationally with the support of the European Commission. We will be discussing together with companies funded by such programmes what's in the menu, how Horizon 2020 provides funding, advice and networking opportunities for the next generation of software, hardware, AI or other cutting-edge technologies and how you can cook best: alone (single company projects) or with company (collaborative schemes).

Compilers: the role they play in accelerating machine learning development & how you can extend them

Developers solve problems, but for the vast majority of problems that developers solve, compilers are at the heart of them. They're responsible for bringing technology to the masses, not just the few that understand the low-level lingo of the hardware. This has been true for technology for decades, and we're seeing a trend emerge: all sorts of next generation technologies are also made orders of magnitude more accessible when they're baked right into the compiler. In this workshop, you'll learn about a brand new deep learning "framework" called Swift for TensorFlow, which is a new take on how machine learning and programming languages should work together. At the same time, you'll also learn how you can create your own compiler extensions and have LLVM do what you want it to at compile-time.

Next-generation technologies: developers to users and developers to developers

Theme: Artificial Intelligence

Machine learning technology is helping make the lives of millions worldwide simpler, safer, more enjoyable, and overall better. Developers are at the heart of this change in how we use technology. However, there are some fields where this technology makes more impact than others, and my passion lies in, and I think it makes most sense to apply this technology in healthcare, education, and development! In my keynote, I'll be showcasing and demoing a few of my projects in these fields. Particularly, I'd like to show off the flexibility of machine learning, and how developers can not only apply it to create better applications, but to make their own lives easier as well.
