The Birds & The Bees

February 2014, Rubyfuza, Cape Town, South Africa


My first real speaking gig. An overview of computational intelligence (AI) paradigms focusing on their practical applications, the joy of programming in metaphors (birds, bees, ants etc). I’ll introduce each paradigm in {neural networks, fuzzy systems, artificial immune systems, swarm intelligence and evolutionary computation} but focus on swarm intelligence and go through examples, like, simple data clustering using ants.
