Code Smarter with the Wolfram Language
1–1:30pm
EST
Sebastian Bodenstein
A Shallow Tour of Deep Learning
with Sebastian Bodenstein

Take a guided tour through the world of deep neural networks. The talk starts with the basic ideas of neural networks (and biological inspirations) and goes on to applications such as image and speech recognition, image captioning, question answering, and game playing. Demonstrations of neural networks in action will be shown. Finally, the future prospects for deep learning will be discussed.

1:30–2:15pm
EST
Lambert Chao
Nick Lochner
Connecting Devices to the Wolfram Language
with Lambert Chao & Nick Lochner

In this talk, we show you how to write a Wolfram Device Framework driver, allowing you to collect and analyze sensor data and programmatically control actuators, motors, and indicators with your favorite device. We provide examples showing how to connect devices using a variety of tools, including LibraryLink, WSTP, and J/Link, as well as available device libraries and SDKs.

2:15–3pm
EST
Devendra Kapadia
Oliver Ruebenkoenig
Solving PDEs over Regions with Symbolics and Numerics
with Devendra Kapadia & Oliver Ruebenkoenig

The aim of this talk is to give an overview of the functionality for solving partial differential equations (PDEs) both symbolically (DSolve) and numerically (NDSolve) in the Wolfram Language. Basic concepts like the specification of PDEs, boundary conditions, and regions are introduced. The scope of currently solvable PDEs will be presented. New functionality like eigensystem computation over regions will be discussed.

3–3:30pm
EST
Adriana Rose
Low-Stress Coding for High-Impact Teaching Tools
with Adriana Rose

Dispel the stereotype that you have to be a programmer to access powerful teaching tools. This talk will show you how to use the Wolfram Technology Stack to engage your students.

The Cloud Goes Computable
1–1:45pm
EST
Todd Gayley
Commanding the Wolfram Cloud
with Todd Gayley

Amazon Echo is a device that plays music from cloud services, talks to your connected-home devices, and acts as a kind of personal assistant, all under voice command. Echo has an open programming model that lets you easily add new capabilities via web APIs, and the Wolfram Development Platform is the perfect tool for the job. In this talk we will develop some simple but useful Echo "skills," including a word game and a genuinely useful time-tracker. If you are getting started with the Wolfram Cloud, or have wondered what sort of things the Cloud can be used for, or if you just like nifty gadgets, this talk is for you. You can use the package created for this talk to quickly develop your own Echo apps.

1:45–2:15pm
EST
Nick Zitzmann
Wolfram Cloud App
with Nick Zitzmann

Get the power of Mathematica and the Wolfram Language on your mobile phone or tablet! With the Wolfram Cloud app, you can view and edit notebooks and run evaluations, as well as view and edit most Cloud objects, from your iPad or iPhone. You can also view most Cloud objects on your Apple Watch. In this talk, we will go over system requirements, what the app can and can't do, and how to get it.

2:15–2:45pm
EST
Carlo Barbieri
Riccardo Di Virgilio
Web Development in the Wolfram Language
with Carlo Barbieri & Riccardo Di Virgilio

The Wolfram Cloud makes it very easy to deploy simple web applications such as forms and APIs, but how does one create a more complex web application, and what tools are available for advanced web programming? In this talk we will try to answer these questions and give you a look at what's under the hood. We'll give you an early look at our latest efforts that make it possible to develop and debug a complex web application locally, before deploying it to the cloud.

2:45–3:30pm
EST
Bernat Espigule-Pons
Bob Sandheinrich
Using IFTTT and Data Drop to Creatively Control Your Products and Apps
with Bernat Espigule-Pons & Bob Sandheinrich

With the Wolfram Data Drop, you can collect and organize data from anywhere, store it in the cloud, and compute with it seamlessly. Learn how to get started with Data Drop, access mobile app data, and work collaboratively using connected devices. Discover how to get creative with data accumulation from more than 150 IFTTT trigger channels in the Wolfram Cloud. Walk through several examples using Instagram, Twitter, Reddit, and more, and connect to Data Drop with your own personalized Do Button, Do Camera, and Do Note mobile apps.
