Half-day workshop - in English

Andrej Karpathy, Director of AI at Tesla, coined the term software
2.0. He envisions machine learning to become an integrated part of the
the software development cycle, partially replacing traditional
approaches to software development. Following that approach developers
and all the people interested in software development can benefit from
understanding the basis of machine learning.
