<P CLASS="MsoNormal">People today are increasingly consuming information visually through images, video & the world around them. We are sharing, pinning & snapping images more than ever before. We are using beautiful images to discover serendipitously the new restaurants we want to try out, vacations we want to plan & the products we want to buy. We are even chasing hidden augmented reality Pokemons all around Central Park in New York!</P>
<P CLASS="MsoNormal">As products move closer to providing users with a real world visual experience, companies are realizing the potential of leveraging AI to use the vast information in these images to provide users with recommendations, comparisons & an ability to store & relive memories.</P>
<P CLASS="MsoNormal">As a product manager, it has never before become more important to understand the visual nuances that impact user experience & understand the process of using images to build successful products.</P>

<P CLASS="MsoNormal">What is Computer Vision & where is it being used?</P>
<P CLASS="MsoNormal">What are the common challenges in building AI products using images?</P>
<P CLASS="MsoNormal">How do we prepare for privacy concerns while using images?</P>
<P CLASS="MsoNormal">What is the future of Computer Vision? From Deep Learning to Virtual Reality!</P>
<P CLASS="MsoNormal">This talk is for product managers, data scientists & leaders who are interested in Computer Vision. You will walk away with an overview of what it takes to build products that use computer vision.</P>
<P>Doors open at 6pm. <SPAN>Light refreshments, including beer & wine, will be provided.</SPAN>Please arrive early to mix, mingle & network. We will have time for Q&A from the audience afterwards.
