Jim Grant of Simply Creative Media will cover the ins and outs of the importance of using a SSL (secure sockets layer) certificate and encryption on your WordPress website.

Starting in October, when anyone fills out a form on your website in Google Chrome, they will see a "Not Secure" message if your website does not have a SSL properly installed.

We will convene a panel that will focus on the tools and infrastructure enabling AI. The panel will consist of the principle engineer for LightEdge Solutions, a technical expert from NVIDIA, and a technical leader from a local company working in the computer vision space. 

Conversation will be participatory and guided by the audience in attendance. The perspectives on the panel will help to contextualize the decisions and tradeoffs in the constantly evolving landscape of infrastructure coming online for AI solutions. Applications and case studies will enhance the exploration of options facing the budding AI technologist. By the end of the discussion you will have a great feel for how a number of interesting problems have been solved using a variety of computing footprints.
