Deep Learning: The Future of Artificial Intelligence

By Matthew Renze

Elevator Pitch

In this session, we’ll learn what deep learning is, why it is so important, and how to get started.


Deep learning is revolutionizing the world around us. This new form of machine learning is enabling an entire new generation of artificial intelligence. However, most IT professionals have not yet learned what deep learning is or how to properly leverage this amazing new technology.

In this session, we’ll learn what deep learning is and why it is so important to the future of the software industry. We’ll learn about the current capabilities of deep-learning systems and their predicted future capabilities. In addition, we’ll learn about the tools that allow us to create deep-learning models like TensorFlow, Torch, and the Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit.


I have given over 65 presentations and workshops at software and technology conferences around the world including NDC, VS Live, IT/Dev Connections, CodeMash, SDD, Devoxx, Devsum, and KCDC. I’m a Microsoft MVP, an ASP Insider, and the author of several courses on Pluralsight involving these topics.
